Find Your Canine Community

When we process your dog's DNA, we'll compare it to other dogs in our extensive doggy database. If we find any close genetic matches, we'll let you know - and you can explore your dog's extended family.

So much more to matching

With matches, you can see other pups your dog shares DNA with and where they live. 
You might bump into them at your local dog park, or they may even be in another country. With each match you can compare the breeds they have in common, and if you have multiple dogs you can see how much DNA they share.
