How it works

  1. 1. Swab

    Gently swab the inside of your dog’s cheek pouch and under the tongue to collect saliva for at least 60 seconds. Get that swab nice and slobbery!

  2. 2. Activate & mail

    Activate your kit online and return your sample. Shipping is free within the US, so drop the pre-paid mailer in any USPS box and it’s on its way.

  3. Phone with age test result
    3. Results within 8 weeks

    We’ll do the rest and notify you by email when the results are ready. Log in to your account to learn all about your pup’s age estimation and care suggestions!

Better informed
"We’re so thrilled to finally have another piece of our dog Miso’s life mystery solved. When we adopted Miso in September of 2020, we were told she could be anywhere from 1.5 to 5 years old. With Embark’s age test, we were able to narrow that window down significantly. In learning about her age, we’re better informed to provide her the best care and life possible!"
Miso's estimated age: 4 years, 1 month
Cheers to healthspan
"We had estimated Willow's age to be ten years and eight months—her body says she's a little younger and her mind and attitude agree. We may not be able to turn back the clock, but maybe we can slow it down with a little help from diet, fitness, enrichment, and integrative care. Cheers to healthspan, not just lifespan."
Willow’s estimated age: 9 years, 11 months
