Certain breeds tested with Embark for Breeders kits are eligible for participation in Embark’s Matchmaker tool.
Located in the “Breeder Tools” section of your Embark profile, the Matchmaker tool allows you to see breeding dogs of the same breed, along with their results (when unlocked) for the health conditions and traits that matter most for your breed.
Matchmaker will also display the average estimated litter COI (coefficient of inbreeding) for each potential pair. Different methods of sorting results can be toggled on and off using the left-hand bar. While we recognize that conformation and other factors are involved in making breeding decisions, you can think of Matchmaker as one more tool in your belt.
If you have questions about using Matchmaker, please feel free to reach out to us.
