Dog DNA Testing

December 28, 2020 once again gave its best-in-class 5-star rating to Embark, a trusted service that provides Dog DNA Testing.

Millions of people have used DNA tests to learn more about their heritage. Why should our most loyal companions miss out on the fun? Dog DNA Testing can be used for many reasons, including proof of bloodline for pedigreed pooches, insights into preventable health conditions, or even discovering exactly what breeds went into making a lovable shelter mutt so cute. With the right Dog DNA Testing Kit, collecting the sample is as easy as an oral swab, with results delivered via email within a month or so. These services vary widely in terms of what they test, so interested customers should be sure to read the fine print prior to selecting a provider.

“There are a number of Dog DNA testing services available today, but none gives you as much as Embark,” confirmed Brian Dolezal of, LLC. “While you might find companies that sell Dog DNA testing kits for less, you won’t find any service that provides the wealth of information Embark offers. In DNA testing, the number of markers matters: Embark tests against 200,000 while their competitors only use 10,000. And, as the company keeps pace with new scientific discoveries, they update your dog’s profile accordingly – at no additional cost. While Embark’s Dog DNA testing is extremely valuable for discovering potential health conditions, so that owners can take action to prevent problems and preserve their pets’ health, the service is well-loved because of its breed evaluation. Want to know if your sweet Fifi descended from wolves? Or if your adorable Rottie might have some poodle in his blood? Embark has identified more than 250 breeds and will give you a detailed estimate – and they’ll even show you other pets in their database with the same breed mix! Embark is truly the most comprehensive Dog DNA test on the market today, and it’s well worth the money if you want to know more about your canine companion. This is our preferred choice among Dog DNA testing kits in 2020.”
