Find the Best Mates for Your Breeding Dogs

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. For select breeds, we offer Matchmaker, an automated tool available through your results portal that assesses genetic matches between available dogs in our database and your breeding dog. Stay tuned for announcements about new breeds being added to Matchmaker throughout the year.
