What's in the kit?

Saliva Collection Swab


The saliva collection swab is what you use to collect your dog’s saliva sample. We then extract the DNA from the saliva to unlock your dog’s genetic code.

For more information, see How to swab your dog.

Dog Tag


The Embark dog tag is a great way to show your pride in improving your dog's wellness and supporting dog health research. Your new dog tag is also a gateway that connects friends and strangers directly to your dog’s profile.

On the back of the dog tag is a special scannable code as well as a web address. Friends and curious passersby can scan this code using their smartphone to look up your dog’s public profile.

If your dog happens to get lost one day, the web address on the back of the tag also helps the person who finds your dog to find you and bring you back together.
