Frequently asked questions

How do I connect with my pup’s relatives if I want to have a playdate?

Right within your pup’s report you can click Chat and start messaging other pups who share DNA with your dog. Set up a playdate, see where they’re located (if they’ve shared that info!) and yap about what fun quirks your related pups share.

Do all dogs have relatives in your database?

Yes! All dogs have some relatives in our database. As more dogs join, the chances of you finding a close or immediate relative will go up.

Why does my purebred dog have so many relatives?

All dogs of a single breed are closely related, because they descend from the same ancestors that started the breed. This means that purebred dogs share more DNA and will naturally have more genetic relatives than mixed breed dogs.

Does this exist anywhere else?

While this does exist for humans, we are the only canine DNA company to offer something like this.

Does this cost extra?

No, this feature is included with every purchase of an Embark Breed & Health or Breed Identification Kit.
