Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Haha it's okay, kids can dream, right? Wink

Honestly I came here to get un-noobified, so the more noobish I feel the better if that makes any sense...

Some negatives can be a bad reaction to the chip. Sometimes foreign objects manage to get inserted with the chip accidentally which rarely results in a tumor but it can and has happened on multiple occasions. Chip migration can sometimes be an issue. Bear in mind the number of dogs chipped without incident FAR outweighs the number of dogs who experience issues, but it does happen. I know too many people who have had bad experiences with having their dogs chipped from severe reactions at the injection site to chip migration all the way down to the dog's foot.

I don't share this to discourage you or anyone from microchipping. I share this so you are aware and go into your decision making process informed. Honestly for a dog that is a high flight risk, like a husky, I think the benefit of microchipping outweighs the risk.

I see, so basically chipping huskies is a good idea since they like to run away. But on the other hand chipping something like a German Shepard isn't such a great idea since they almost never run off? That makes sense, thanks!

hehe, glad I can still make people laugh Wink

Anyways I did a quick search on micro chipping services near me and found out that both of the local vet clinics provide them. So it looks like I'll be doing this, thanks for all the advice guys!

I would chip any dog, regardless of breed or roaming instinct. Accidents happen, someone could leave a door open, a gate could come loose, and poof, your dog is missing.

We held a teaspoon of peanut butter in front of Anya's face when she was chipped, and she never stopped licking the spoon when they did it-I don't even think she noticed it. Smile

I'm a big believer in microchipping - it's now compulsory in most states of Australia. In Victoria no cat/dog can be sold without a microchip. The needles are no worse than an injection IMHO and are for the good of the animal regardless if they are a flight risk or not.
