Learn More About Your Dog’s DNA Story with Embark
Our dogs are part of our family and we’re sharing about how to learn more about
your dog‘s DNA story in partnership with Embark.
For a long time, we wanted to have dogs, but couldn’t have them where we were living. Now we live on a bigger property and have since added two beautiful Great Pyrenees dogs to our family. My husband and I have both done a genetics tests before and it was really cool to see the different ancestry lines and other information we got from the tests. I think it would be cool to do one for our dogs as well! That’s where Embark comes into play.
Embark is a dog DNA testing service that offers the world’s most accurate dog DNA test – revealing insights on breed, ancestry, health and traits. It’s even been featured on the Today Show and on Oprah‘s Favorite Things list. Embark’s Breed + Health Dog DNA Test looks pretty dang awesome! It provides information on breed, health, ancestry, and more just by doing a simple cheek swab.
Embark is the only canine genetics company that uses a research-grade DNA genotyping platform, which their industry-leading scientists spent years developing at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. It’s pretty amazing that they have the ability to look at over 250 breeds and more than 175 genetic health conditions and traits, plus being able to capture over 200,000 genetic markers. That’s 100 times more genetic data than Wisdom Panel!!!
Inside the kit, you’ll receive three different items. These include (1) Swab & return label and (2) Swabbing instructions. So how does it work? Once you receive the kit, simply swab the cheek to collect your dog‘s saliva sample, and then send the kit back to Embark. Results are typically returned within 2-4 weeks. How easy is that?
This looks like a pretty awesome kit and is definitely one we would love to check out someday with our Great Pyrenees dogs! Order your Dog DNA Test today!
