    Armed with more complete genetic information and transparency, breeders can share information earlier, and if necessary, mitigate the effects and spread of previously unidentified deleterious genes.

  • Embark sport dog partnership
    Embark has made the genetics side of my goal so much more simple by testing for such a large amount of diseases, traits, and more at a very reasonable price. I appreciate especially that it describes in simple detail what their genes mean when you get your dog’s results. This has been very useful for both myself and for future puppy homes when they want to look up the results their puppy or their puppy’s parents have.
    Amanda Jo Cantwell, Sport Dog breeder
