Has anyone had this done? If so, what brand/method did you use? Were you satisfied with the results?
I adopted an amazing puppy from the pound, and while I don't really care what he is, I'm curious as to where some of his behaviors come from. When I looked at the reviews of one brand on Amazon, there seemed to be a lot of people who were pissed off at their results because of how ridiculous they were (like their mini poodle looking dog came back with great dane and lab results). However, there also seemed to be a lot of people who were satisfied with their results so...
UPDATE (since a couple of people seemed interested in whether the test actually worked) - I ended up getting the test and sending it off. The results came back relatively fast and seemed to be pretty spot-on. I can definitely see the physical and personality traits in my dog that the test determined were his two main breed types. They also give you a list of the next 5 breeds that could make up the part of the DNA that would be "mixed." 3 out of those 5 breeds were ones that I suspected, and the other 2 are totally plausible.
Tl;dr summary - I would recommend the DNA test to someone who was on the fence about them based on my personal experience.
