5.0 out of 5 stars Please stop questioning and just buy this
By skippy nikki on April 6, 2017
We rescued a puppy in December who was described as a pug mix. (as you can see in the photos everyone but me doubted this was correct) so we decided to DNA test her. I was looking at several tests (both more and less expensive than this one) and decided on Embark because of the genetic disorder portion of the text. My parents lost a dog, that could have been saved had they known about his genetic condition. They kept me updated regularly as to where they were in the process, and though it feels like it took forever, I never wondered if my girl's DNA was shelved somewhere being ignored, because I knew just what step it was going through.

When the genetic portion came back with her testing positive for a scary sounding condition, the Embark geneticists sent a personalized email before releasing the results, letting me know things weren't as bad as it sounded, and explaining further about the condition (including the breed of dog that it typically cause the most issues with) Had I just opened my results and seen this condition I would have PANICKED!! However knowing more about it allowed me to not panic, and just let me Vet know so we could keep an eye on her as she gets older.

I was very impressed when the breed tests came back!! They were very complete and detailed. My husband could not believe we got that much information for our money. (one test we had looked at was a $200 blood test that would only give us her breed) Not only did we have the breakdown of her breed, we also got a family tree, as well as the level of inbreeding on her genes.
I have seen some reviews on here complaining about the Supermut results, however when you get the supermut results they also provide information about what trace breeds go into the supermut.

Another amazing thing is that if new genetic disorders are discovered, they run these through the existing DNA profiles, and if your dog tests positive they will update your results and let you know.
The only con I have about this test is how long it takes to get the results, but given everything they check, this is completely understandable!!
If you are on the fence about what doggy DNA test to get, please do yourself a favor and pick this one.

By dede123 on January 17, 2018
Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a border collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a Shih Tzu pitbull mix which makes way more sense. I included picture because everyone has a hard time picturing a Shih Tzu pit mix.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
By melissa hopkins on November 27, 2018
What a scam! I have a Bearded Collie/Old English Sheepdog mix. I was so excited to find out what she was mixed with. After all of the anticipation Embark came back with the results of what was obviously another dog's sample. I have a long-haired, non-shedding dog and every breed in their results are shedding dogs that are mostly short-haired other than Chow and German Shepherd. No Bearded Collie or Old English Sheepdog in the results. Her results:
11.0% Boxer
11.0% Australian Cattle Dog
10.3% Bulldog
10.2% Rottweiler
10.2% German Shepherd Dog
9.8% Chow Chow
6.9% American Staffordshire Terrier
30.6% Supermutt
I guess Supermutt is her dominant breed because she doesn't resemble any of the breeds they came back with. Waste of money! I emailed them to say that I thought they sent the incorrect results and they just came back with a BS response. Save your money and spend it on something fun for your fur baby. We know that her father was Bearded Collie. Sorry my pic is sideways but she is none of the result breeds.
First picture is the dog that was tested, 2 through 5 are litter mates and the last picture is dad. We saw a picture of the mother and it was behind a gate. She looked smaller and resembled maybe a Portuguese water dog but we are not sure which is why we purchased this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped us make the decision to put our girl to sleep
Reviewed in Canada on July 5, 2020
We found our girl as a pup less than 5 weeks old, in the freezing winter in a box on the side of a highway. We picked them up and decided to keep one, and it was the best decision we had ever made. She was a wonderful addition, very loving, protective and loyal. Slept in the bed with me every night, went for hikes every day, and helped me through some extensive trauma. Never had to train her much, she stuck to your side like glue. She was there for me every step of the way. We knew there was mostly Akita in there, probably some Shepherd and Lab, but we never expected anything else. Her results showed true to her reserve dog blood. As time went on, I learned so much about dog care and breeds, I went for my certificate in dog training and completed a 2 year course in animal biology. All thanks to my girl giving me the motivation to do better for dogs everywhere.

In her old age, she started developing a ton of health issues, due to her lineage as a reserve dog, they have short lifespans. She was back and forth to the vet, different diagnoses every time. Each vet had a different opinion. First it was just allergies, then hypothyroidism and hip dysplasia and more. I knew there was something more, and vets wanted thousands to determine what it was. She started dragging her hind legs, and could barely walk. She fought through it daily, always crying, but always willing to struggle to climb into bed with me. I eventually came across Embark on youtube, and bought a DNA + Health Report, and was not disappointed. It finally told me what she was suffering with. She not only had hypothyroidism and liver damage, but also inherited 2 variants for Degenerative Melopathy. A disease of the nervous system that starts in the low spine, and slowly paralyzes the limbs. I knew then, it was time to end her suffering. There was no cure and she was already in so much pain. She passed peacefully in the vets office, resting on my lap. She was a good girl, my best friend before anyone else, and will not be forgotten. Many thanks to Embark for the wonderful service they offer.
