Ok, I'm not going to breed Candy as she's desexed..but to be reg in the BA registry and get involved within the club.
I think the main trouble with this is that most modern breeds are made up of numerous breeds to start with. So DNA is mixed up anyway.
DNA is useful to prove parentage, if you have parental DNA to compare it to. I'm pretty sure this is what they are doing with the Bull Arab registry, to prove the lineage of particular dogs when the type is still slightly unstable.
The video from youtube is garbage anyway - she at least contaminates her gloves on herself, and her clothing, so what other DNA is she mixing in there to confuse results anyway?? Other dogs? Humans?? Who knows. Maybe I pick up on it having been trained in taking these tests from humans...
These pre packaged tests seem a good money spinner and that's about all.
Hello, I am new to this forum and wanted to post about DNA testing. I had it done for my dog but the result was disappointing as she is nothing like what we were told. Only her secondary genes (grandparents) were traceable. She had a saliva swab test. I was warned though that these tests can sometimes reveal nothing at all. So, if you are still interested for a bit of fun and a laugh -that happens after you recover from the expense and the disappointment - then do it. Otherwise, just love your dog for who he/she is and keep guessing as we still do.
Thanks Magdalene. Well, our dog looks like and acts like a pointer/dalmatian and probably many other breeds along the same lines. Her DNA revealed that her grandparents were British Bulldog and Bull Terrier. That's her as a puppy on the left side of my name. I will be putting up some photos of her in the album once I get the hang of it.
She's a cute girl. I can see Dalmation in her. Looking forward to seeing more pics.
