Genes Decoded Will I shed like crazy? Why is my coat so curly? Why is my coat so long? Decoded: The MC5R gene Decoded: The PMEL gene Decoded: The MITF gene Why do we have white patches in our coat? An insertion in the MITF gene turns off pigment production in some areas of the skin and coat. Decoded: The KRT71 gene Decoded: The FGF5 gene How is my Merle pattern determined? Find out if your dog is likely to be a heavy, seasonal, or light shedder. Merle arises from an unstable insertion in the pigment gene PMEL. A curly coat is the result of keratin not binding together in a regular pattern. A long coat is caused by a recessive genetic variant. Decoded: The RALY gene Why does my Saddle Tan pattern occur? The N variant causes recession of the black pigment producing a “saddle-like” pattern.

“As a breeder Embark makes genetic testing way easier. All tests are combined within one swab at an amazing price. I have 11 Labradors, all tested and trusted with Embark. Wait time is longer than most testing companies, however it’s much more thorough. Knowing exactly the colors your dog carries, their background, and genetic makeup is very important to me as a breeder. I’m glad I chose to test with Embark!”

“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!”

“I use Embark to test all my potential breeding dogs. It is a great tool to make the right breeding decisions with my Dobermans. 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.”

“Small gene pool. Health issues. Embark genetic panels and their extraordinary team of geneticists helped transform the future health of my breeding program in just two short years! I look forward to a lifetime relationship of maintaining healthy dogs to breed from thanks to Embark!”

“I am an Embark customer and have been since winning my 1st kit at Westminster in 2019 when my ASCOB Cocker Spaniel, Charlie, won the breed there. I had used other testing companies before but I appreciate the “one stop shop” for testing, reporting and sharing of data with my co-breeders. I have been promoting your Breeder Tests to all who will listen in hopes that others see the value that I do in the product.”
