About Us

Created by dog lover and Professor, Matteo Pellegrini, who runs a UCLA lab studying dog genetics and epigenetics. Our test empowers dog lovers to care for their best friend.

By estimating your dog's breed, age, personality and health we can help you determine the most appropriate strategies to enhance your pup’s wellness.

We set out to make the science of genetics and epigenetics accessible to all dog owners who have a genuine interest in their dog’s health and well-being.
