Doggy DNA tests under the microscope


TIME LINE. BACK TO YOU.>>5:51 NOW. FROM K-9 CLOTHE TO GO PET RESORTS FOR ROVER, MANY DOG OWNERS SHELL OUT BIG BUCKS FOR PUPPY PERKS, TREATED MERE FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS LIKE FAMILY.>>THE LATEST TREND IS D.N.A. TESTING FOR DOGS.>>THAT’S RIGHT. THE TESTS CLAIM TO REVEAL YOUR DOG’S BREED OR BREEDS IF YOU HAVE A NUT AND IT’S INFORMATION THAT ME SAY CAN BE INFORMATION BECAUSE SOME BREEDS ARE PREDISPOSED TO CERTAIN MEDICAL CONDITIONS. WE WANT TO SEE JUST HOW ACCURATE THEY AR 8-YEAR-OLD BRUTUS SAY TALKER, A TAIL-WAGGER, AND HE WAS A REAL TROOPER WHEN HIS HUMAN, CHANNEL 2 PRODUCERS LAUREN BROWN, HAD TO TAKE CHEAP SWABS FOR D.N.A. TESTING. WE PURCHASED THE TWO MOST POPULAR BRANDS AVAILABLE, D.N.A. MY DOG AND WISDOM PANEL. BOTH COST JUST UNDER $70 ON AMAZON. THEY SEND YOU KITS WITH SWABS AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO COLLECT THE SAMPLES AND THEN YOU MAIL THEM BACK AND WAIT FOUR TO SIX WEEKS FOR RESULT>>D.N.A. MY DOG SAYS.>>Reporter: TLAURN AND TYLER SAT DOWN FOR A BREED REVEAL. D.N.A. MY DOG ACTUALLY REQUESTS A PICTURE OF YOUR POOCH ALONG WITH THE CHEEK SWAB REPORTED BRUTUS IS A MIX BETWEEAN ITALIAN GREYHOUND, CATALUHA HELPED DURING A AND GREAT DANE.>>I DID NOT SEE ANY OF THOSE COMING.>>WISDOM PANEL REPORTED COMPLETELY DIFFERENT RESULTS. ITS TEST SHOWED BRUTUS SAY 50/50 MIX OF A RAT TERRIER AND A RUSSELL TERRIER. WE DON’T SPEAK HIS LANGUAGE, BUT WE THINK HE JUST SAID, WHAT?!>>WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO CONCLUDE FROM THAT?>>IT’S OUT OF CURIOSITY OR ENTERTAINMENT VALUE.>>DOCTOR OF MYERLAND ANIMAL CLINIC SAYS THESE TESTS COLLECT JUST A TINY BIT OF DAN CALLED A SNIP. IT CAN GO SEVERAL GENERATIONS BACK, AND DEPENDING ON WHAT SECTION THE TESTERS GRAB, RESULTS COULD VARY GREATLY.>>IT CAN BE FRUSTRATING AND I THINK THERE’S JUST STILL A LOT OF RESEARCH THAT’S GOING ON.>>WISDOM PANEL TOLD CHANNEL 2 IT SCREENS FOR MORE THAN 250 BREEDS. D.N.A. DOG TOLD US IT SCREENS FOR 88, AND THAT VETERINARIAN DID SAY TEST SCREENING FOR MORE BREEDS USUALLY WILL LEAD TO MORE ACCURATE RESULTS.>>THAT STANDS TO REASON.>>D.N.A. MY DOG SAID, OH, WE’LL DO A REDO SINCE IT CAME OUT SO CRAZY, AND THEN THEY HAD A TERRIER IN THE RESULTS FOR THE SECOND GO-AROUND AND THE GREAT DANE DISAPPEARED. THEY SAID THERE MUST HAVE BEEN SOME CONTAMINATION BUT THEY COULDN’T REALLY EXPLAIN IT.
