Results & tools

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 30 seconds.

  2. 2. Activate & mail

    Activate each kit online and send samples to our lab in their prepaid envelopes. Note: Samples remain stable for at least 6 months. However, kits expire two years after purchase, so please plan accordingly.

  3. 3. Results in 2-4 weeks

    We'll notify you by email when results are ready. Take advantage of exclusive breeder tools for every dog you have tested.

The dog DNA test breeders trust

"A great tool"

"I use Embark to test all my potential breeding dogs. It is a great tool to make the right breeding decisions. I encourage other breeders to use Embark - the more we know about our dog's health, the better breeding decisions we can make to improve our breed."
– Tracy G. Embark Customer

"Making me a better breeder"

"Embark has been a crucial component in making me a better breeder. As a breeder of Australian Shepherds, there are many genetic health issues and color/trait genetics to consider before pairing two parents together. Having this knowledge can help provide a healthy puppy to an anxiously awaiting family and change their whole life!"
– Kara S. Embark Customer
