What's The Real Breed Of Your Dog

Unlock the Mystery of Your Dog's DNA with the New Lower-Priced Canine Heritage(R) Breed Test

The leader of the pack in dog DNA breed testing today announces a lower-priced DNA breed composition test. Due to recent technology advances, the previously $99.95 Canine Heritage® breed test will be just $79.95 (inc. shipping)!

"Our test led the way in determining a dog's breed composition, helping dog owners better understand their pet's behavior. Your dog knows what she is and why she does what she does. With our test, you too will know now what she has always known," explains Tom Russo, EVP of MetaMorphix, Inc.

The at-home dog DNA test uses sophisticated DNA analysis to match the profile of a mixed-breed dog to a database of more than 100 recognizable AKC pedigree breeds. The user-friendly test kit includes a simple cheek swab that customers gently rub along the inside of their pet's cheek to collect cells. The swab is placed in a special envelope and mailed to the company's in-house lab for DNA analysis. Unlike other companies, all testing of dog DNA is performed by specially trained staff in the U.S. In about four weeks, customers receive a frame-quality Certificate of DNA Breed Analysis. As the primary DNA testing provider for the AKC since the inception of its Canine DNA Programs, MMI Genomics has been the leader in canine DNA testing since 1995.
