A Microchip Can Help Keep Your Agility Competition Dog Safe

Microchipping has been around since 1995 and has slowly gained acceptance as the benefits became more evident.

In fact, not only are dogs and cats protected large animals like horses and llamas are as well as tack and equipment.

In the beginning there was some trouble with the providers and data storage companies, but now there is AKC Companion Animal Recovery (AKC CAR) recovery service.

AKC CAR is an affiliate of the American Kennel Club® and the nation’s largest not-for-profit pet identification and 24/7 recovery service provider.

They have millions of pet owners enrolled in their programs and list not only microchip animals, but collar tags as well.

It is a must have not only for cross country competitors but for owners of high risk breeds as well.
