All pet parents can agree: We love our dogs more than most humans. While we may or may not know every single detail about our furry friends, Embark Dog DNA Test kit can help — and it’s on sale today!
According to the brand, this comprehensive test is the “most accurate and highest reviewed dog DNA kit on the market.” If you can get Fido to sit still long enough, you can test ancestry, breed, health and relatives with a cheek swab. And for Prime Day, the Embark Dog DNA Test is $169 (was $199) at Amazon.
Embark tests for over 350 breeds including wolf, coyote and village dog ancestry. It also helps trace your pup’s family tree back to great grandparents and connects you to other relatives that share similar DNA. However, the standout feature of this test is the comprehensive genetic testing for over 190 adult-onset diseases.
“We sent our puppy’s DNA in for testing just days after we rescued her,” one shopper recalled. “She was called a ‘Beagle mix’ and we had just lost our beloved Beagle to cancer. We knew she wasn’t very Beaglish (except for the one floppy ear) but she doesn’t act like the Jack Russell everyone thought she was mixed with. It took 10 weeks to get the result but Embark communicated several times that they were working on it, it just takes longer for mixed dogs. And she is REALLY mixed.”
“Really great DNA test for your pup!” another chimed in. “They keep adding new information to the results even after you get your initial results. Plus, you get breed and health diagnostics all in one test! Well worth it!”
“Very fun, explains a lot!” a third added. “Identifying your dog’s breed helps you associate and understand behaviors. We have our second Chihuahua at home and training was quite difficult in the beginning— everything was different with this adorable little guy. Our test revealed that he is also a ‘little biter’ aka miniature pinscher…let me just say yes!!! Information was provided that was spot on. We thought he was anxious and fearful, but actually he is stubborn and alert. We love our little guy, and the more we can understand him the better we all get along.”
