Dog DNA Can Tell You A Lot About Your Best Friend! (Part 2)

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

Did you check out Part 1 of this article? Dogs love playing with toys. However, the breed makeup of a dog may influence his or her preference for specific toys.

For instance, dogs with a strong prey drive, like the Australian Cattle Dogs may prefer squeaker balls; while sporting breeds, such as Golden Retrievers, like to chase after a ball. However, every dog still has their own preference.

Do you even know that dogs have their own love language? The love you get from your pup at the end of a long day, the tail-wagging, the smile on her face, the full expression of love. That’s what they express when they lick you, sit on you, or curl up on your lap. Your dog’s ancestry influences her love language.

Do you know that some dog breeds are more food-motivated? These breeds don’t know when to stop eating, so they may be predisposed to being overweight or obese. DNA testing helps a lot of dog parents understand their dog’s required adult weight range. This helps a lot in making informed decisions about their nutritional needs.

Speaking of nutritional needs, we all know that different breeds have unique nutritional requirements. This knowledge helps in picking out diets for that breed’s specific needs.

DNA testing also reveals a dog’s traits and coat colors. Traits are specific characteristics of an organism determined by genes, the environment, or interaction. Dog traits that may be revealed by DNA testing include ear position, the length of their tail, and legs. Also, it reveals your dog’s personality. Dogs are like us, each one has his/her own unique personality and they need love, care, and attention!
