    When I moved here, I had to get mine micro-chipped. I am not sure if it is a law in Africa or if it is just because I brought them here from the US. It wasn't cheap but I feel safer knowing that if they did get out of the house, I could find them.

    Yes I know. I wanted to know how one can track a lost dog with the device. Does it use GPS technology.?

    You will pair the chip with the provided tracking device or mobile app provided it's gps enabled if not , you can only scan the dog physically.

    I didn't even know about this procdure until recently. Is this a painful procedure for the dog?

    I don't believe it would be painful.

    I have both of my dogs microchipped. I like knowing that I can find my dogs if they get lost.
