Embark Dog DNA Breed Ancestry – Where Your Dog’s Ancestors Came From

Your dog has taken a long trip to get to your lap. There are over 350 unique dog breeds, types and varieties. And while we know all dogs are related, some are more closely related than others.

Through your dog’s Y-Chromosome we can trace his ancestry back to where dogs and humans first became friends. Each different ancient group – or haplogroup – tells a different story of creation, migration, struggle and ultimately survival.

Through his Mitochondrial DNA we can trace his ancestry as it relates to his mother. Mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA is inherited only from a dog’s mother.

There are over 350 breeds, types and varieties we look for in your dog, click here to view the full breed list.

Health – (P)rethinking Canine Health

What if caring for your dog was proactive instead of reactive? The Embark breed and health kit tests for 210+ health conditions — more than any other dog DNA test on the market.

Our health report makes it easy to send your pup’s results to their vet to make a care plan for all their years to come.

Get ahead of canine diseases that occur later in life including glaucoma, degenerative myelopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy, three of the most common adult-onset diseases in dogs. Knowing that your dog is predisposed as early as possible means starting prevention or treatment early too.

Embark Dog DNA Traits

Learn why your dog is unique, from the tip of the nose to the shape of the toes—plus everything in between.

Where other tests just tell you the breeds in your dog, Embark actually looks at the genetic basis of appearance to explain why your dog looks like your dog. See how closely your pup resembles other Embark dogs with the same trait genes, even if their breed mix is different! These traits can even help you guess what your dog’s offspring might look like.

For example, a number of genetic loci are known to affect coat colour in dogs—they all interact and, in some cases, other unknown genetic effects may also influence colour and pattern.

The Embark Dog DNA Test reports coat colour, other coat traits, body feature and size, performance and genetic diversity.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Dog Allergy Testing Review
Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
