Let Me Microchip Your Sheltie

› Microchip

Let’s say your pup gets lost. A microchip helps get him home.

Let’s say he gets stolen. Microchipping helps to determine who owns him at least in the state of Delaware. In most states there is no way to "prove" you own a dog other than a removable dog license tag. Sad but true.

Also, put the chip number on his AKC registration application. Then there is no confusion about the identity of the pup nor ownership.

I can do the implantation of the chip for you and submit your information for the lifetime enrollment. 

I can go one step further if you know what name you want to put on his registration, I can also register him with AKC for you as well.

Just let me know before you pick up your puppy so he will be ready to go.

Why Use Reunite Microchip?

There are as many different companies as Carter has liver pills. (Wow, that’s an old saying!) Several of my pups have different chips.

I’m settling on AKC’s Reunite brand for one basic reason. It has a lifetime enrollment. There is no yearly subscription to be paid for the basic plan. I hate having to pay for subscriptions to anything.

So once you pay for the chip and I register him for you, it’s done. Nothing else to think about.

You can change your contact information anytime, online or by phone as often as necessary for a small fee.

Why Register?

Implanting without registering the microchip will do little. Registering it will link your pup to your name, telephone numbers, emergency contacts, etc. in Reunite’s database. 

The 24/7 toll-free Line is included with every microchip enrolled with Reunite.

There are no annual fees and additional fees to speak with a live microchip expert.

When your pup is found and Reunite is contacted by whomever caught your pup, the Reunite people will send you a text, an email and begin calling the phone numbers you provided on registration. 

If you can’t be reached, they will contact any alternate contacts you listed.

Yankee Shelties would be happy to be an alternate contact if you wish. I want my / your puppy to be safe.

The microchip folks also give you the location of where your wayward hound is.
