I grabbed the Embark kit w/ the medical option (not listed by OP, but also available at Chewy, with $134 or without $99 the medical screening) before I saw this post, based on this comparison and review of Wisdom Panel, Embark, and DNA My Dog.

PC Mag sent the same mixed-breed dog's DNA in under different (humans' and dogs') names to test the services' accuracy.

Summary: Wisdom Panel and Embark are accurate, or at least, consistent, between their own tests and each other. DNA My Dog was kind of all over the place.

I chose Embark because they provide a lot more technical data in regards to the DNA health screening and I'm into that sort of thing. They also provide you with the option of allowing your dog's DNA to contribute to scientific research. FWIW, their testing swab also comes with a return vial w/ stabilizing fluid, while the others just ship back in a dry envelope.

I was looking at these a few weeks ago and I have been waiting for a price reduction. However the Embark has not changed price and has always been $99. The Embark is one of the better ones from my research, and they test for over 350 unique breeds. Some of the lower priced ones test for much less breeds and can come up with very different results if your dog is a breed that they do not include in the test results. Some people have bought the cheaper tests and then bought one that tests for more breeds (like Embark) and found the results were a much better fit after they tested with the quality test, and they were very unhappy with the cheaper test.

I looked on the Chewy webpage and it appears Wisdom tests for 350 breeds with their $64 test kit which is similar to Embark. This test might be worthwhile, anyone have experience using the Wisdom test kit on a dog which has a mix of some less popular breeds?

As for the DNA my dog breed test for $46, this one seems very sketchy. Someone asked Chewy how many breeds are in their database and they completely avoided the question and just stated they have the most popular breeds. But I googled it and found what Chewy does not wish to share, and that is they only test for 98 specific breeds. So if you dog has a mix including one of the 250+ breeds that this test does not include then your results will be wrong and they will assign another one of their 98 breeds that they do test for in place of the breed that they do not have in their database. This cheap test only tests for less than 1/3 of all the dog breeds that are in the higher quality tests!

How do these work for the doodle mixes? Will I know if I have a cockapoo or a goldendoodle?

NYT reviewed a bunch of dog DNA tests and embark was #1 and Wisdom #2.
