A Home DNA Test Kit For Humans Found This Golden Retriever Would Make a Great Cyclist

A journalist working for NBC 5 in the US has road-tested a handful of mail-order DNA analysis services, only to find they all gave conflicting results.
On top of that, one of the companies couldn't even recognise the difference between human DNA and that of a dog named Bailey.
According to their report, Bailey is genetically well suited to playing basketball and long distance cycling.

I researched my family history a few years ago and essentially I come from a long line of English peasantry.
I did, however, find that my 4 x great grandfather on my mother's side was born in Copenhagen in 1769.
Do you think that if I sent off my DNA for testing the results would conclude that I am a Great Dane?
