Tell us about yourself: I am: a father of 2 boys, a carpenter, hunter, runner. We have extensive experience with sled dogs, shepherd mixes, a wolf hybrid, and our current dog a 95# long haired Shiloh Shepherd. We added Endeavor in April 2016. She was not working out in HRD. I train for game recovery and general utility.

Re: DNA Test

Post by TimL_168 »

To be honest, I can't really understand how any of them can claim to read 100% genetically DS. There are so many lines and most of them are at least to some degree outcrossed. I'm curious what the SPECIFIC markers are that they look at, and how those markers compare to other breeds and also how they compare to the markers other testing companies use.

Under the health category, Radar passed with flying colors.

Did you know that Von Willebrand Disease Type I is common for Dutch Shepherds? Radar is clear.

They also generate a report that can be shared with your vet...

Was he checked for just VWF ?
What other diseases was he checked for and why were they not listed ?

They identified VWF as being common to the breed, so it is highlighted on the health summary page.

There were 181 Genetic checks. There's not an easy way to share them all, but I will.

BTW - Embark is running a $30 discount on the breed + health test until 2/17. The code is PUPPYLOVE.

Radar has ~30 relatives in the Embark Database as of today.

Here's the top two by percentage:

Cleo looks like a Mal to me, but as you can see, Embark says he's a Dutch Shepherd. The list of relatives is mostly DS, but there are some identified as "Mixed Breed (%highpercentbreed)".

Embark provides a "chat' link to communicate with the relatives.

I don't see it either (???).

I can't find any specific mention that they do on embarkvet.com, but barkpost.com says that they (Embark does) test for it.

The only thing I found on embarkvet.com is an article that talks about the challenge to find all the chromosome combinations that contribute to diseases like hip dysplasia.

For parental relatives, I agree. For siblings and cousins, it's entirely possible to have mixed relatives. Embark doesn't provide any distinction except the % match of the DNA.

I wouldn't want to make that call. I do see that Embark has more features which is the biggest selling point to me.
