Before you begin using Matchmaker, make sure you have accurate and updated information entered about your dogs. Matchmaker includes a wide range of information about your dog and potential matches including eCOI, health, traits, titles, age, average litter size, number of litters, photos, distance, and more.
The information shared in Matchmaker is pulled directly from your dog’s profile. Some information populates automatically from a dog’s DNA testing results, including health, traits, and eCOI. Other information is entered by the owner, including age, titles, etc. Distance from matches is calculated using the address entered in your Breeder Profile.
To edit the owner-provided information included in an individual dog’s Matchmaker profile, start in the Profile section of their Embark results.
Next, click “Edit Profile”.
Once on the edit screen, you can scroll through the various sections and add any information you choose to share about your dog; Registered name, titles, age, number of litters, etc.
To Edit the location information that populates the distance filter in Matchmaker, you will need to edit your Breeder Profile. This can be found on your main MyEmbark page under Breeder Tools.
Once you have opened your Breeder profile, add the address associated with your breeding program. Don’t forget to click the blue “Submit” button once you are finished!
