Some breeds are more dominant than others and don’t respond well to certain types of training. Having Kate’s DNA tested insures we set her up to be the best dog she can be by catering to her breed instincts. Plus, I think it’s really cool to know where she comes from. (If you miss the foster pups story, catch up HERE).
Knowing the breed of your dog is very important. Some breeds are predisposed to certain medical conditions and exhibit certain behaviors. For example, (TOBY’S DNA TEST RESULTS HERE) Toby is part Cocker Spaniel and is at a higher risk for ear infections. When we go to the dog park, if I don’t clean his ears properly, after he swims, he gets an ear infection. Then the guilt sets in. After speaking with other dog moms, they NEVER clean their dogs ears after swimming and they are fine.
Here are her results.
We are so happy to have her no matter what her breed but now I can officially say I have an Australian Shepherd, Boxer, Pomeranian mix. 🙂
The test predicts that Kate will weigh 47-73 lbs. The little chunk already weights 41 lbs at 7 months old. Where has the time gone really?
