Embark Company Overview

Embark offers the most comprehensive dog DNA test on the market.

An Embark dog DNA test enables a pet owner to learn about their dog’s breed, ancestry, health, and more with a simple cheek swab. The company offers the most accurate results by using 100 times more genetic information than any other test available. Pet owners can potentially extend their dog's lifespan by using Embark, which tests for over 170 genetic health conditions.

Launched by two brothers, the company is an official research partner with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and has a mission to end preventable disease in dogs.
