Use doggie DNA to find out your pup's breed for just $99

Today only, Embark's Breed Identification Kit is 24% off.


At-home DNA kits are all the rage these days, with a little saliva unlocking all sorts of information about your family history and genetic health. So why should humans have all the fun? If you've ever wanted to see what science has to say about your dog's breed and ancestry, you're in luck, if you move fast. Until midnight tonight, you can get the Embark Breed Identification Kit for $99 when you apply coupon code FLASHSALE at checkout. That's down from the regular price of $129.

Embark's kit gives a precise breed breakdown, screening for over 350 dog breeds, types and varieties. And borrowing a page from human DNA kits, Embark shares your pooch's ancestry, tracing its lineage back though its great grandparents. For fun, the app lets you find, message and meet families with dogs who share your dog's DNA. In other words, the Canine Finder helps you find your dog's cousins, and maybe you can set up a play date at the local dog park. 

Embark says that the company uses a research-grade genotyping platform developed in partnership with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, which allows it to offer the most accurate breed breakdown on the market. Don't worry, you don't have to painstakingly collect saliva in a test tube -- a 30-second swab of the inside of your dog's cheek is all it takes to get the ball rolling.
