I wish I had read these reviews first. The dog I was testing is a typical border collie. A photo of his body would clearly show his maternal breed. I have included a video below talking a little bit about how to do the test and sharing the results. The breeder asked for a second test, we sent off samples again. Looking at previous posts regarding this firm I thought that we’d been scammed and I wrote to Via-Pet informing them so. They all so failed to respond to the UK “Advertising Standards Agency” If we had supplied the photo it would be a dead givaway. The results were intended as a Christmas present, and dispite the sites claims that results would be received within 14days, it is now Christmas Eve and no results! The order was not complete, it did not contain the DNA swabs and it has been very difficult to get hold of a contact. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-06-04. The DNA My Dog test is purely customer facing. It is now 39 days since they took my money. I didn’t send his chip number. Read honest and unbiased product reviews … It’s a shame I didn’t have those results first as I’m left wondering if they are rubbish as well although they fit. You guessed it, saluki was not a named breed. The results said three breeds, when the dog who’s test was received has a purebred Saluki as a parent. The DNAffirm ($49) test for dogs is the least expensive dog DNA kit we've tested, but don't let that tempt you. Level 2 means they have around 37% - 74% of these breeds. WASTE OF MONEY! This product is also sold under the name DNAffirm. If your dog’s breed is truly mysterious—or if you suspect there are many or rare breeds involved—the Wisdom Panel Dog DNA Test Kit is likely your best option. The DNAffirm ($49) test for dogs is the least expensive dog DNA kit we've tested, but don't let that tempt you. I would rate it lower than one if I could. I did a complete dog test and sent a hair sample and no of that was included in the result. I would add he does not look like a collie at all (so the photo wont have helped) and his chip paperwork only shows cross breed and no breed (so again if they looked that wont have helped either), they confirmed a collie and the other breeds that have made him as well. Nothing. Customer service is a zero. It blatantly lied on the breed of our second dog. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-07-19. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2019-02-05. My initial order in January never arrived after 2 months so I contacted Paypal and it arrived from the UK after that. I wish I would've found these reviews before … SCAM! I wanted to know for health and training purposes. You will probably need to place your own mailing stamps on the envelope so be sure to put the correct amount on so that there are not problems with the shipping process. They did not even test my DNA. My dog looks like a labrador cross, but I knew from DNA tests already done on puppies known to be his that he is majority Canaan with no indication of any Labrador in him. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-05-20, Please please please don’t buy this via guard dog DNA test. Join the 146 people who’ve already contributed. I purchased a DNA kit for my daughter to use for her partner and baby. Please note, after contacting Viaguard about my issue, I received a full refund. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY ! DO NOT USE i would give no stars for this but it’s asking me to rate from 1-5!! The reason they want a picture is to put on your final certificate? emails go unanswered. They send you a PDF file which shows your dog breed composition on a certificate. Seriously I was extremely sceptical ( I thought we’d been scammed) but they’ve done a great job and extremely accurate. This company claims its ‘Pit bull Exemption certificate will save tens of thousands of innocent dogs from execution’. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2019-05-13. Quick turnaround, great levels of communication and a nice certificate for our dog with good results. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-08-31, I can’t find any fault with this company, I don’t understand why they are getting negative reviews! Get them out of business.. Lab Fees Not Included. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-08-20. So after about 3-4 weeks after sending the testing kit back I received the results via email. Nothing but excuses when I call. I stupidly sent a photo of my lab cross dog to this awful company, only to find, surprise, surprise, the results came back with 75% lab no other details. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-11-14, Well after adopting my adorable pup we decided to see what breeds he had in him. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2019-02-13. Wait for the results and finally get them 28th June. Absolutely no way he was that, they totally did a visual analysis. Is the most asked question. At the bottom of the email it states that if you have a problem do not email or ring!! You can only speak to the overseas headoffice who are rude!!! Please do not use this company. This company is a complete scam. !.Took 2 emails asked for a retest but was just sent a refund with no response or explanation. There are several different offerings for dog breed DNA tests that you can order online. Don’t waste your money people they are an absolute joke. I sent an email asking how this is possible and that my other test is still showing at not received. Then they gave me results for the second test. Complete waste of money. Viaguard's precision Dog DNA analysis for breed composition is now even more precise because the pieces of the canine genomic puzzle are much better understood. A pet DNA test can uncover your dog's origins and give you information about inherited diseases, too. Via Guard won’t process your DNA test without a photo and filling in the suspected breeds section. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for DNAffirm Canine Breed Determination Cheek Swab With Bonus Offer--See Product Description. Don't be fooled by the low price or negative reviews of people sending in dog DNA. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2019-01-29. 0 stars, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-04-21, If u don’t send a photo or give then suspected breed they cant give any results, its a scam. Here's our rankings. They take your money & send out kit which is two cotton swabs. And the testing process is fairly simple: Each test comes with two DNA test swabs. I one thing that we are certain of is that my dog along with his two brothers are puppies of a Dalmatian. . This company does not even respond to emails and has no contact number. he has a fluffy face! The kit was easy to use and the results came within a few weeks. Ok now I read the reviews on this site after we’d paid for tests and our tests had not yet been confirmed as being received, although Royal Mail had proof of delivery. I just recently received the results back so thought I would share them with you and write a little review. I did not tell them I beleived him Saluki just sent in his pic as requestd for his certificate at 12 weeks he looked like a pointer or foxhound and suprise that want his results came back as and NO Saluki mentioned!! Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-12-29. We rescued a puppy and knew his mother to be Saluki but father unknown. © DNA Testing Choice 2021. The lab took a while to receive me sample but that isn’t their fault, it could have been delayed at the post office. I sent another under another name and told them what I thought she was and got results that were far more acceptable plus they included a dog that not many people would have heard of but I did wonder if it was in my dog. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-12-24. WEBSITE GIVES MESSAGE THAT RESULTS TAKE DIFFERENT TIMES AND THEY WILL MAIL RESULTS.??? This company take your money and then you never hear anything. They just guessed based on my last name. I won’t stop till I do. The website says “Do not call or email if you have a problem.” WELL THAT’S GREAT! Had already written it all off as a waste of time, when the email with results came through. I received no correspondence to say the DNA result was ready. I know she is a lab but wanted to know what else. Yesterday when I checked the status I was surprised that the results were ready already. I had provided a microchip number and a photo (of my boys face only), the 2 deadly sins according to the reviews on here. We’ve since had it done by a more reputable company and as we thought she’s 87.5% American bulldog 12.5% boxer. This seemed reasonable. As with most products, some at-home dog DNA kits are much better than others. The results were the exact same as another test which I paid SIX TIMES the price for. My results came back and I’m happy. Totally contradictory , they’ve guessed at the results. I would recommend. I have included a video below talking a little bit about how to do the test and sharing the results. Would have given them minus 5 stars! I am now thinking this is a scam. Sadly my dog has passed away since I had the test done so it is interesting to find out these results. ***This company asks for pictures AND what breeds they are. Shouldn’t be in business, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-04-08. It’s not present in my dog, however according to the results sent to me one side of my dogs DNA is totally English bull terrier. They make use of the same familiar buccal swab for … Of course it will appear accurate to her. I do NOT recommend this ViaGuard DNA kit at all! . So the 5-7 days testing takes took you 1 day when you still hadn’t received it? 14 days approx they said, been over 2 months, very difficult to contact and never had any reply. Definitely not dad’s side as he is KC registered with a long line of ancestry! The results came back showing he was indeed majority Canaan…. My results came back and I’m happy. They shouldn’t need a picture! I got a paternity test that was a lot cheaper here than the other companies were charging. We order, try and review the best dog DNA tests of 2020 to see which provide the most accurate information and are worth the price. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-10-18. Also communication is non existent with them. Web site is registered as “private” It should be registered as commercial so that Web site owners details are published. Our dog is definitly English staffy, with maybe a little of something else (but maybe not). Either these things are accurate or not. Investing in Stocks, Bonds, Real Estate, More. Please don’t buy this DNA kit. This is not a fake review I promise I use the DNA paternity test UK and their lab is Viaguard Accu-Metics and even through the whole Coronavirus situation I still got it done within 14days. They never tested the samples. Viaguard has the most sophisticated and advanced dna analysis for invasive and non invasive paternity determination. Well over 30 days to get results, which when arrived were a joke. Not all DNA tests for dogs work the same way, which gives a lot of wiggle room for dog DNA test accuracy. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-07-22. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-12-17. View on Amazon. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-01-23. I have very light eyes, hair and skin. I put in my complaint and demanded a refund. All in all very good for one of the more reasonably priced dog tests, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-06-15. $ For Nothing! They're ranked 21 out of 22 for Pet Testing and rated 1.6 out of 5 at DNA Testing Choice. The company isn’t doing research on the back end, like Embark and Wisdom, but it’s focused on helping doggos in another key way. Hell, I could guess that just by looking at him. Really…. I purchased two tests. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-08-16. I bought this test through Walmart so will be contacting them next. It is important to know your dog's genetic makeup so you can be aware of any breed-specific health predispositions and any potential behavior concerns. Move on people, move on! This breed is not on your list of dog breeds you test for. I only gave 1 star because there was no option to give none! It’s clearly a scam. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2020-08-14. There is no phone number to ring them. Without a dog DNA test, the best you can do is hazard a guess based on your pet's physical features. Once you have done that you need to put the swabs inside an envelope which they tell you to leave open for around 30 minutes so that the swabs can dry out. I was a little skeptical at first because I could not find any reviews on their website which I thought was a little strange. It is confusing in terms of the tests that are actually available and whether you can buy them at all. Apparently our 25kg dog that looks quite alot like a staff and german shepard is a Chihuahua and Pomeranian Shame you can’t rate them 0 stars, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2017-11-07. This time we have a Coonhound, Keeshond, Belgian malinois, and a bit of spaniel! Customer service is appalling as they have ignored all emails for the last week! Avoid avoid avoid, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-03-06, I think this company is a con. Here it is in August & like all of the complaints you see here , still no results ! If you are reading this, please right a review and report them to the BBB. The breeds that showed up in Dingo's test were German Short Haired Pointer, Labrador Retriever, Great Dane and Rhodesian Ridge Back. Thankfully both tests also showed negative results for MDR1 and EIC… but the fact that Viaguard even gave me results for these conditions without even bothering to do a proper test is – in my opinion – criminal! That should have been the first red flag!! Dingo had a large white chest and was a little taller than your average Labrador Retriever. This company needs to be investigated by a watch dog. We had always wondered what breed Dingo was. I followed instructions. User score: 7. Guilty as charged and a full refund given, a crappy excuse that the sample had maybe been contaminated! Very very angry! I bought my test awhile back from Walmart. How many stars would you give Viaguard Accu-Metrics? Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-02-08. Web site states not to phone or email them if you have a problem. I wish I saw all the reviews. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2019-03-30. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME. Paid money and sent in swab over 3 weeks ago heard nothing,dont answer emails ……….SCAM, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-03-01. Wish I had read these reviews before wasting my money. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-06-30. Your experience matters. Is your pup 100 percent pug? I was going this for the simple reason cse we’ve already been scammed by the person who sold us our puppy saying she is a cavalier when in fact she is crossed with a springer so this dna was supposed to be being used in court against this bloke. Steer clear of these cowboys. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-07-15, Avoid at all cost very unreliable and poor service.I sent my swabs away they ackowleded receipt but ive heard nothing for 3 months, Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-07-13. I was so disappointed when Viaguard too came back with poodle/schnauzer/spaniel with no mention of dalmatian. I've already DNA tested my dog with another company and I just wanted to compare the accuracy by using a second test from a different source. I really wish I’d seen these reviews before. I received two of these kits for Christmas. The breed of a dangerous dog is not relevant under UK law. It was fairly cheap and it does seem accurate to me however I guess there is no way to know for sure. Viaguard review by a DNA Testing Choice user2018-01-26. What kind of customer service is this?? The test samples were taken and sent away 29/01/2019, 5 months ago and still haven't received any results. This company is a joke so AVOID at all cost, they request a picture of your dog so they can guess what breed it is. at Amazon.com. There is so much information out there to say it’s a scam. After waiting twice the time they said it would take I got the results…they are a joke, Australian Kelpie and border collie mix? If your pup’s parentage is perplexing, a dog DNA test could reveal its ancestry. German Short Haired Pointer and Labrador Retriever were the 2 main breeds which both showed up for the level 2 reading. I wish I could give 0 stars! Anyway didn’t get a reply after 3 weeks so sent off an email asking if they had received the samples, they replied within a couple of hours and guess what they confirmed that the dog was what I said in the false declaration I made when registering . Plus, will also be sending an email to BBB. I’d just like some reassurance. While both dog DNA kits had pretty similar results, Embark gave much more detailed information, and the test actually specified breeds that Wisdom lumped together as “unspecified breed groups.” Whichever test you try, you’re sure to have fun learning more about your four-legged friend. Oh my gosh! However it was fairly cheap so I took my chances. Supposedly the quality of the sample can affect the readings, even though they were done to your instruction and dried in the envelope to ensure no cross contamination. Like many others, my money and test results seem to have disappeared into the ether. The results pointed to two breeds involved, a cocker spaniel and a brittany spaniel. Genetics is what makes a pointer point, a sheepdog herd, and determines the size and life-span of breeds. Will be interesting to see what their response is going to be. You will also need to register your kit at the same time. I’ve now given the money to an animal charity. That day I received the results at 4:59. In May of 2018, I had a prenatal paternity test done through this office. I purchased a pet DNA test from this company (Australian website) ... Read 1 more review about Viaguard Accu-Metrics Great communication and exact results I would highly recommend and is very cheap. But sure she sent in a photo and suspected breeds of her dog and chip number. Also leave a comment below and tell me if you were surprised by my dog's test results and let me know what breed you thought he would have been. Looks just like a german shepherd and low and behold, no findings of german shepherd. It arrived quickly after purchase and came with a free returns envelope. I am of Northern European descent. Do not use this company, it is a scam without a doubt. I sent my dogs DNA swab in in May. I for one plan to file a complaint with the BBB. We knew the breeds of ours dogs, but were curious. How crazy can you be. Sadly my dog has passed away since I had the test done so it is interesting to find out these results. I managed to find a phone number, however they could not help saying that since I already paid for the kit, they could not send out replacement swabs . Found Viaguard paid my money and sent the swaps, photo and suggested breed over to them. They are supposed to know this from dna not asking for photos etc. Despite this the test from Viaguard came back telling me he was a Lab/Collie cross (neither appearing in any of his puppies). I am pleased with the dna results, and the staff answered all my questions quickly. I’ll wait another 15 days and then I’ll contact the Better Business Bureau after all I paid for this test! Don’t waste your money they don’t do any sort of test just go by what you say you think it is. I would genuinely recommend them to anyone. I was very pleased with everything about my dog’s DNA test, and the customer service was super good… previous veterinarians and rescue groups were not in agreement on his breeds… This DNA test provided the missing link.. to his primary breeds.. and further lineage… his tendencies and health characteristics all fall in line..Monique in Canine Determination customer service sent results in one week! Id give zero stars if I could. I SENT MY DOG’S DNA SAMPLE IN OCTOBER 2018 AND HAVE GOTTEN NO RESULTS BACK AS OF FEB 19 2019. I have also included a tribute video below which shows some different video clips and photos of my dog throughout the course of his life. See Key Product Features.
