Find Potential Mates with Matchmaker

Matchmaker is an automated tool available through your results portal that enables you to easily evaluate and predict inherited disease variants, genetic COI, and traits of a prospective litter between two intact dogs, of the same breed, available in the Embark database.

Personalized Breeding Pair Assessment

Use our Pair Checker service to evaluate mating dogs you are considering for your program. Embark’s dedicated customer service team will analyze each proposed pair to identify the optimal genetic matches that maximize the health and success of the dogs’ potential litter. This analysis includes the expected occurrence of genetic health conditions, traits, and the coefficient of inbreeding (COI) of the litter. This service can also be used to help identify future breeding dogs for your program.
