About Our DNA Kit


Each dog is unique and their physical and behavioural traits will be the result of multiple factors, including genetics, training, handling, and environment. ADVANCE™ Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test's proprietary genetic analysis provides insight into the behavioural traits in breed that have been identified in your dog, the predicted genetic adult weight and breed related risk of developing certain genetic diseases. A dog's weight range can vary significantly depending on age, diet and exercise. The ADVANCE™ Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test is not intended to diagnose diseases or predict behaviour in any particular dog.

If the test results indicate that your dog is partly or wholly of a breed that is restricted in your State or Territory, you may have obligations to update the registration information for your dog, to apply for a special permit, or to meet other requirements relating to the ownership and care of your dog. Please contact your local council for further information regarding which breeds are restricted in your State or Territory and your obligations in respect of such dogs.

Breeds restricted in most parts of Australia include: Perro de Presa Canario (Presa Canario), American Pit Bull Terrier (Pit Bull Terrier), Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and Fila Brasileiro.

This test may not identify all of these restricted breeds. If you are concerned that your dog may be partly or wholly of a restricted breed, you should contact your local council for information about how to obtain further testing. ADVANCE™ Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test is designed and intended to be used solely to identify the genetic make-up of a mixed-breed dog. It is not designed to validate the purity of a purebred dog, and test results should not be relied upon as official certification of your dog's genetic make-up, including for the purposes of the laws relating to restricted breeds.
