The Embark Dog DNA Test Kit tells you more than you ever thought possible about your dog. The test tracks over 200,000 genetic markers, offering breed identification, key insights into genetic disease risk, ancestry, and heritable traits. Embark tests for 165+ genetic conditions with a simple cheek swab, enabling dog owners to better understand their dog’s health, plan for the future, and provide the most personalized care possible. Embark provides you with a comprehensive look at your dog’s genetic makeup via a personalized dashboard for your pup’s results. You can then use the information to make the best choices about your pup’s health, diet, exercise, and overall wellness. You’ll understand your dog better and have fun in the process! Unlike other dog DNA tests on the market, Embark goes beyond breed identification and explains why dogs look, shed, and play the way they do. Embark looks at mutations that occur in each breed in your dog to determine if he or she is at risk of developing a genetic disease. Contact our support team to learn which tests are OFA accepted.
BREED DISCOVERY: With a simple cheek swab, Embark uses the most accurate breed identification scientifically possible. The Embark Dog DNA Test Kit tests for over 250 dog breeds, even wolf, coyote, and village dog ancestry.
FAMILY TREE & ANCESTRY: The Embark Dog DNA Test will tell you your dogâs family tree all the way back to great-grandparents. Embark also shows other dogs of similar breed mix to your pup. You can explore their profiles and photos and see how much they resemble your dog.
HEALTHY AGING: Embark tests for over 160 diseases. With our comprehensive genetic testing, you can better plan for healthy aging, with information on everything from genetic diseases to drug sensitivities. Keep your dog healthy longer by testing for genetic diseases that occur later in life including glaucoma, degenerative myelopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy, three of the most common adult-onset diseases in dogs.
FAST, TRUSTED RESULTS: Built by experts, only Embark is partnered with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and is trusted by veterinary hospitals. Results generally between 2-4 weeks.
TRAITS: Embark results will tell you information on traits that range from coat color to body size. Have a new puppy? Embark will tell you how big he or she will get, as well as expected shedding. Where other tests just tell you the breeds in your dog, Embark looks at the genetic basis of appearance to explain why your dog looks the way it does.
