Deceased Dog DNA Breed Testing Only $189

This exclusive service will determine every breed in a deceased dog using objects the dog has come in oral contact with and are still in your possession.

This groundbreaking DNA test is in partnership with the Paleo DNA Laboratory at Lakehead University.

Deceased Dog DNA

Please note: Your dog must have had contact with their mouth on the item being sent for testing. The item must not have come in oral contact with another dog or those breeds will report in the results.

How it works: Dog possessions are sent to our partners at the Paleo DNA Laboratory at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Canada. The DNA is extracted from the items and sent to DNA My Dog. From there we run it through our database the same way we process our usual canine DNA samples. We will report to you every breed found in your dog. Results include a custom certificate and are available in 3 weeks upon receipt of your sample.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn the breeds in your dogs after they have passed.

“We were so happy to have found this service. We were in the process of ordering DNA tests for our three dogs and suddenly lost one (she was 16). After speaking to many other companies no one could offer DNA testing for our little girl that had just passed away. DNA My Dogs customer service walked us through the process and delivered as promised. Her results are interesting as they came back with 2 breeds we were guessing and one that completely confused us; however, after learning the breeds and researching them it paints a perfect description of our little girl, her traits and appearance. Thank you, DNA My Dog.”

“You held our hands all the way during an especially difficult time as our dog had just passed away in our arms on Christmas Day. This DNA test was one thing we had to hold on to, and we really appreciate how kind and responsive you were throughout. I don't think I have ever experienced a higher level of customer service anywhere else. Thank you”
L. Tompkins, Val-des-monts, QC


“The experience was great! I had a question before ordering the Deceased DNA test, and Jessica was in contact with me from then right through to receiving my dog's results. She was very responsive and helpful, ensuring the return to me in Australia of my dog’s stuffed bear, which is of great sentimental value. I was not sure if a sample could be extracted from my dog's toy but I was thrilled to receive the breed info which answered my questions about my dog's breeds, and helped give me closure after her passing. I could not be happier with the service.”
