Wolf content in wolfdogs

The wolfdog content level refers to how much wolf content each animal has in them. For example, a low content wolfdog is mainly dog with a small amount of wolf, while a high content wolfdog is mainly wolf with a small amount of dog. 

Wolf content is determined through a process called phenotyping where we assess all the physical, behaviour, and biological traits to determine if they are low, mid, or high content wolfdogs. Since we are not using DNA tests, we do not use percentages. DNA tests are not readily available and can be quite costly.
