Interactive video lesson plan for: The Story of Fido's Physical Traits

Activity overview:

Appearance only reveals part of your dog's ancestry -- the rest is revealed when you take a closer look at his/her DNA.

This illustrative video provides informational content around canine DNA, the basic blueprint for life, so that you can better understand what makes your dog so special. It takes a closer look at inherited genes and how they determine the different dominant and recessive traits, which ultimately impacts the physical characteristics of your dog.

Unlock the secrets hidden in your dog's DNA with Wisdom Panel®.
