How accurate would you believe Dog DNA tests to be? I have a dog that looks exactly like a Carolina Dog with GSD coloring but the test results came back as Husky/Malamute/Cattle-dog which makes no sense based on her size and tendencies.

Hello,
I always tell my clients to view the results as more of a “fun” inquiry versus a scientific one. I am also not sure how many breeds of dogs they collected nor how many of each breed. I also guess they may not have used the best of the breed standard to collect the specific breed DNA. I also tell my clients that the best breed of dog is always “adorable”. No judgement or breed standard traits are relevant with that breed. ??❤️
