    Embark is one of the best ones out as far as consistency and the amount of genetic disorders that are tested for. Tests for 170 breed specific genetic disorders. Will also tell you breed, size, color of the dog. Also, it will give you an accurate Wrights coefficient.
    Cost is around 200 per dog tested.

    If your refering to DNA profiling for breed or ancestry, that's a lot cheaper. I would go through the ADBA for that one.

    I been researching it for a few months now. Going to most likely get all my dogs tested. No real reason other than piece of mind.

    It is good to have them on profile. For genetic purposes. I did it for fun. The dogs I have in Future ..if I make it to the duration, can be traced back to them. I'd like to get the type AGK mentioned...sounds detailed.
