Microchip for peace of mind

The Scottish Government has announced that microchipping will be compulsory for all dogs in Scotland from April 2016.

At Prep La Pooch, Laurette has the skills and training to microchip your dog. This includes:

  • insertion of microchip
  • on-line registration with SMARTCHIP
  • full registration card

You can find out more about what microchipping involves on the Dogs Trust website

We offer a special discount for litters and will happily provide further details on cost when contacted directly.

A microchip is a small electronic chip, around the size of a grain of rice, which is implanted under the dog’s skin and contains a unique number that can be read by a scanner.

The dog owner’s contact details relating to each number are logged on a central database, so should the dog ever go missing or be stolen it can be scanned by the authorities and returned to his owner swiftly and safely.
