Some chips are good for dogs…

What a busy month June was?! National Microchipping Month (NMM) meant the Kennel Club (KC) organizing two really enjoyable events to spread the word and encourage more owners to get their pets chipped.

The first was a microchipping morning held under and around the bandstand of Battersea Park in London. With representatives from nearby Battersea Dog & Cat Home, Petlog, Pet-ID and the local authorities, we managed to chat with many dog-walkers out and about and even managed to implant a few chips too. It was also the first time I’d ever met an Alaskan Klee Kai, very cute indeed!

The second NMM event was up in Coventry at their lovely War Memorial Park. Again, a really enjoyable and constructive event held in association with Coventry Police, with some colourful canine displays and a few extra West Midlands dogs ending-up chipped by the end of the day too, including Petlog’s beautiful new Rottweiler puppy Mystie.

  1. Here are some tips for not having to look for a lost dog:

    *Tips for preventing your dogs from getting lost:
    *Pet-proof your yard fence so your cat or dog will be safely confined. Be sure to check your fence regularly for new escape routes.
    *Keep fence gates securely locked. This is for the safety of both your pet and any visitors (wanted or unwanted).
    *Never allow your pets to roam free in the neighborhood. Leash them at all times.
    *Always leash them when taking them anywhere. If a dog gets loose in an unfamiliar area its chances of ever finding its way home are practically nil.
    *Get some good photos of your pet now, before it’s too late.
    *Train your pet (cat or dog) to associate an “Dog Whistle” with pleasant things. Blow the whistle each time just before you feed them. They will then be more likely to come running to you when you use the whistle to find them when they are lost.
