All my dogs are microchipped. It is the only true way to identify a dog as yours if it is stolen or lost. All pounds are required to check for a microchip before putting a dog down, so it might just save your dog.

Also, the OFA is now requiring some form of identification on your dog, either DNA test or a chip, before you can certify their hips.

I wouldn't own a dog without it.

I have both my dogs chipped, and from reading the regulations in the town I bought my home requires it to be done. It is a great way to get your dog back if you loose them.
