Do you give secondary breeds as well? I'm fairly certain my dog is a lab/pitbull mix, but would like to know what's included in her genetic makeup more than her primary breed.

Asked by: Rachel
Thank you for your question. The test will provided your dogs breed composition. This will break down into levels from 1-5. Level 1 This category is intended to help owners recognize when their pet's DNA contains a majority of a specific breed (75% or greater). If your dog has a strong match to one of our validated breeds, then it is categorized as Level 1. Level 2 This category reports breeds that are easily recognizable within your dog. This usually means one of the parents was a purebred. Level 3 This category identifies breeds that have between 20%-36% of the listed breed(s), usually coming from a grandparent. Level 4 Represents 10%-20% of the breed DNA, usually coming from a great grandparent Level 5 This level represents the lowest level of breed in your dog occurring at 9% or less. However, they still appear at a low and measurable amount in your pet's DNA.
