BEST DOGGY DNA TEST?

This has probaby been asked somewhere on this Talk section but I cannot find it. I have a puppy - now 5.5 months old. When I got her i was told she was a Poochon (Bichon x Toy Poodle) and I had no reason to suspect she wasn't. However, every time I walk her I must get asked at least a dozen times, what she is! Then I get people;s theories on what she is. I recentlly had her groomed as she was becoming matted and would not allow me to de-tangle her and now she looks totally different! I will post pics in a min so you can give your input if you wish. Anyway, I would like recommendations on which DNA kits are best value and accuracy as I would like to eliminate all doubt and opinions from every one I meet. One thing's for sure, she is the cutest, friendliest, most confident, feisty little miss and I absolutely love her, whatever she is!

Is she definitely from UK stock? I believe the tests aren't reliable at all if not.

Wofiefan I have no idea. She was bred in Norfolk apparently (I live no where near Norfolk). She was an unwanted xmas present bought by Grandparents - so I am told....

Not sure. Just a thought. Have you got insurance? An unknown cross from possibly dubious origins. Could be costly b

Wisdom Panel...you can get it for Amazon for about 60 quid. Ours confirmed that Skipdog was mostly the breed mix the rescue had assumed but had a couple of extra %s of other breeds, one of which makes absolute sense when you look at her.

Aww bless her, she’s a doll. Is she completely white, she seems too small from the photos to be a bichon/ mini poodle. She has a little face like a yorkie, but then I wouldnt except her to be all white.

I have used Wisdom panel a few times and am actually very confident the results are right, though have also heard a few stories of dubious results.

I liked the idea of dog DNA tests until someone in the park told me of someone she knew who had sent off his dog's DNA to three separate companies and got three totally different results!

olivetor7 she has apricot ears but other than that all white and crinkly/curly hair -)

Jack Russel x poodle?

Too smal. Plus very wavy/curly fleece like fur.
