Through DNA which you collect at home, MuttMix can determine which breeds are in your dog. Using Muttmix is very simple – if you’ve ever watched CSI, you’ll know how to use it.

Order your kit!

We’ll arrange to have your kit couriered to you – all you have to do is let us know where to send it. Otherwise you can pick up a kit from your nearest participating shelter. Inside the kit you’ll find a customer information card, a prepaid envelope and a paper sleeve containing two swabs. The kit contains more detailed instructions (which are very easy to follow).

Swab your dog

Step 1: Remove the swabs from the paper sleeve.

Step 2: Place the first cotton swab in the dog’s mouth and brush the inside of the left cheek firmly, with the swab, for at least 20 seconds. Then place the second cotton swab in the dog’s mouth and brush the inside of the right cheek firmly, with the swab, for at least 20 seconds. This process is not painful or harmful to the dog.

You must be sure to press firmly while swabbing. We need lots of cheek cells on the swab so we can get high quality results

Step 3: Allow the swabs to air-dry for 30 minutes, then place the swabs back into the paper sleeve. Send back both swabs and the completed Customer Information card using the included prepaid envelope.

Step 4: Complete payment for processing via credit card or direct deposit using the payment link. If you received your kit from a shelter, we will donate R100 to the shelter

Enjoy your results!

Step 5: We will email you a certificate with the list of breeds detected, behavioural information on each breed and information on typical disease risks. This will help you to understand your dog’s personality and be aware of potential health issues.The process takes about 6 weeks from the day we receive your sample to final results. Place your order for a free kit now to start the process.
