Discover the Breeds that Make Your Dog Special
In the same way that you have similarities to your family, so too has your dog inherited characteristics from its family. We don't all look like our grandparents and the same is true for your dog. When you combine DNA from different dogs and different purebreeds you end up with a unique, one-of-a-kind mixed breed dog.
By knowing which breeds are in your one-of-a-kind dog, you can better understand how to support and care for him.
Your dog's coat, colour, tail and even ear sizes come from his DNA code. Did you know that their behaviours - such as digging, herding, swimming or barking - could come from the mix of breeds in their family tree.
What is a mixed breed dog?
A mixed breed dog is a cross between two or more dogs of different breeds. The make-up of a mixed breed dog can be simple or complex, the more breeds in a dog’s DNA, the more difficult it is to identify. The mixture of breeds in a dog can often be difficult to recognise visually, a DNA test is able to accurately identify which breeds your dog is made up of.
