Contribute to Science


Embark is the only dog DNA test on the market that's built on science and uses data to further scientific research and improve the future health of dogs.

vs Others


No research component. No other dog DNA test is working toward ending preventable diseases in dogs.

Updates to Results


New discoveries are made and new tests are added frequently. When possible, we update your dog's profile with the results of these new tests, always at no cost. When this isn't possible (e.g. because the new test requires probes that are only available on the most recent version of our kit), it is necessary to buy a new kit.

vs Others


No. Dog owners need to pay per test if a new disease is discovered.
