When launching Embark in 2015, our dog-loving founders made an important decision: That they would only offer the highest quality scientific test paired with top-notch service to our customers. If you try our test with your pup, you’ll be glad that we made that decision.
“This test is one of a kind and backed by sound science.” – Canine Journal
“I think it’s cool that you guys are the best dog DNA test out there. As a geneticist, I know that more SNPs tested, the more accurate the results. I love the chromosome breakdown of my dog’s breed, and the huge amount of health genes tested (and I also totally appreciate that you cite the scientific literature on the genes! I know that it’s legit, and I know where I can read more if needed!). I don’t have a social media presence enough to recommend on facebook or anything, but I do use word of mouth!” – Diana Christian
“With an insanely detailed health screening, maternal and paternal tracing, and tons of genetic markers, this test is just as in depth as tests for humans.” – Mashable
“Embark went above and beyond other DNA tests I’ve seen. Like a 23andMe for your dog, this one has it all!” – Tara Baxter & Crockett
