The Litter Package Contains:

  • 4+ DNA Test Kits, Maximum 11 DNA Test Kits
  • Each Kit is priced at $99
  • Expert consultation
  • Kits must be used on puppies within the same litter

Each DNA Test included in the litter package includes:

  • Risk of genetic health conditions relevant to your breed
  • Genetic COI
  • Physical traits such as coat color, length, body size, and more

Individual puppy attributes can vary widely, from their genetic COI to clear/carrier/at-risk statuses for various genetic diseases. For some breeds, physical traits do not fully manifest until later in adolescence, after the time by which breeders need to select the puppy they wish to use to continue their breeding lines. Embark’s Litter Package helps address these challenges by providing low-cost DNA tests for each puppy in your litter. 

The Litter Package also includes an expert consultation with an Embark breeder specialist. This consultation provides a customized review of your litter’s results and can be used in a variety of ways to help answer questions or inform any decisions you’re considering for your breeding program. 

For the puppies being provided to pet homes, this information can be important for the lifelong care of the dog and valuable addition to the package breeders provide new dog owners. 

For the puppies you choose to select for future breeding, Embark’s DNA Test results will be useful when considering future dams/sires and planning the future of your breeding lines.
