    Nero's (my avatar) DNA test came back as Lab x Pomeranian. Yet it was a swipe test like in the link. If I remember right someone here on the forum mentioned that blood tests are far more accurate. Whether that's true... I have no idea.

    The DNA test is a blood sample that is sent off, I've not heard of the swab test.

    I guess a blood test is less likely to contain contaminants like dog food and dog kisses. But any DNA test is only as good as what they have to compare with - and it doesn't matter if it's a blood test or a swab test if the data they're comparing with is unreliable.
