Wisdom Panel Breed Identification DNA Test
There are a number of reasons that the father in your life may not know exactly what breeds make up his canine friend.

By knowing what breed of dog he has, he can know important health risks and temperamental traits his dog may have. Plus, it’ll feel pretty exciting to finally know what makes up his pooch, and where he or she came from. A great gift for many canine father’s!
