Home DNA Kits Can't Tell Between Dogs And Humans

The real story here is that I'll bet you money that all the dogs tested came back with at least 1.5% sub-Saharan African ancestry.

At this point in our story we should also note that we submitted another set of samples from another individual to several of the companies. But this individual, Bailey, is not your usual customer. In fact, she’s not even human. She’s a Labrador Retriever. The company sent a 7 page report, saying that her muscle force would probably be great for quick movements like boxing and basketball, and that she has the cardiac output for long endurance bike rides or runs.
