Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a breed club or organization representative, but I want to send information to them about potential partnerships to help them learn more.

Many of our partnerships have started exactly this way - with members championing for organization-wide participation. We recommend that you download this pamphlet that has more information, and send it directly to your breed club decision-makers or contacts. You can also click here to send an email directly with this information

Who owns the data, and how do I ensure that anonymity is protected in these studies?

Embark values your confidentiality and has developed a Privacy Policy that prioritizes the safety of your personal information balanced with the goal of improving the health of dogs. Under our Privacy Policy, we do not share your personal information. However, consistent with the Privacy Policy your dog's information, including genetic and trait/health information, may be shared with researchers after the removal of personally identifiable information.

My breed is unique and has specific needs. How do I make sure those are addressed if we partner with Embark?

Every partnership is unique. Embark recognizes that breeds, by their very nature, are distinct, and these differences are what makes dogs such a remarkable model for genetic discovery. A key element of a successful partnership is for our team to learn more about your dogs from the breed’s experts (you!) and work together with your organization to customize a meaningful program for your breed.
