Microchips are useless unless you do the registration!!!!!!
When you add a Simply Standards’ puppy to your family, he or she will come home to you already microchipped – all you have to do is register the microchip. This is a one-time activation
fee, and there is no charge to process a change of address, etc., for the life of your dog. Please, register the chip – if you do not activate your registration and your dog becomes lost, there is no way to track the microchip and your dog could be euthanized or placed in another home because they could not find YOU!!! So please don’t procrastinate on this, take care of this quickly, and keep the contact information current. You can list an alternate contact – I would suggest the breeder, or a close relative who will always know where you are. You may use your veterinarian, however it might not be the best choice, as they can be hard to reach, and you will change vets more often than you will relocate! Don’t forget to update your information if you move or you change cell phone numbers.
You are able to take care of the registration online and activate your puppies microchip in the tracking system right away. If you have further questions contact your breeder or reach out to your veterinarian for more information.
