Well, there are many who have used the test and have been quite pleased with the results. They have found out the true ancestory of their canine companion. But in all honesty, the only true test is for you as the dog owner to get the DNA test and apply that to your own dog. From my own experience, I have used the Kit and is quite pleased.
My wife and I had gotten a dog which looked more like a cross between a golden retriever and a German shepherd. We weren't sure what the true breed of the dog was and it was just up to everyone looking at the dog and speculating. We decided to get a Dog DNA Test done and used the product from EMBARK. We did the mouth swab, enclosed the swab and sent it off. The results were amazing. The Dog was 73% Labrador retriever and get this, 27% Rottweiler! That was amazing for us as this dog was quite playful and very friendly and expressed no temperament of a rottweiler.
So you see, it is quite simple to find your dog true information. All you need to do is:
- Order the test online.
- Activate it
- Swab the cheek of your dog
- Mail the sample back to the Embark lab in a pre-paid return envelope.
- In two to four weeks, you'll receive the results
