You might think this is an insignificant topic but the truth is, it’s more important than you may think. We believe all dogs should be micro-chipped and that all dogs should wear an identification tag on their collar in case they get lost. Losing your dog can happen to anyone so ditch the “I’m better than that.” arrogance and don’t think for even one split second that it could never happen to you!
