Where did you get that dog gate? That's the best-looking one I've seen. Most are plastic.

Try Frontgate - I've seen (similar) nice ones there

A buddy of mine has the same gate. Very nice setup.

One of my dog's chips has migrated to her leg and is sensitive/painful to her. I'm going to have it removed. I'm thinking they will not reuse it just due to age and 6 years worth of banging around. So its as if I was starting over- are both Home again and Smart tag one time fees only? Is one better than the other if I have the choice?

Thanks!
Yes Smart Tag (what we use ) and Home Again are one time fee, plus what ever the chipper charges...We do it for free so what we pay for the chip is what we ask for.

There are chips out there that by marketing at least, less effective in prevention of migration.. IOW do not have anti migration technology as part of their chip manufacture.

There is also how/where the chip was implanted and the dogs activity after implanting.
I'll skip how and where, but after is key as well. Fur kid, cat , ferret or dog should be kept calm the first 24 hours after chipping. Allowing the tissue to start its processing of attaching to the chip.

Let's not forget that while the implantation of the chip is not really that expensive (and sometimes vets do it for free as part of some promotional events), it's the registration database fees that surprise most people. If you don't pay a registration fee, your dog is not inserted into the DB. And if you don't pay their annual ransom, your dog is erased from the DB.
Every single time we found a loose dog and too it to a local vet, they said "the registration came back old and outdated".

We rely on a good collar with our dog's name and our contact information.
Are you sure about this? I only registered my dog when he first got chipped. I don't remember them saying I had to pay each year. I suppose I better check on it. Thanks for the heads up.
It depends on the chip company.
MOST only charge annually for their "Premium " services. Basic registration is for life. Now some do require you to be a current "premium" member to change the pets profile 24pet watch is one of those.....and all of them send you a reminder annually that your pets "Premium " account status has ended , please pay us more to continue, but that is just marketing to get you to sign up for the extras.

Happy to help, give me the chip company or just the chip number and I'll tell you what their policies are...If I dont have it in the file I'll find out to add it, and tell you

Very good point..and one I spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars getting past...outdated pet profile contact info.

PLEASE update your pets profile, we suggest once a year, timed with vet visits...Log on to your pets profile, this insures you have the correct lo in info when its not an emergency, and it allows you to update a pet picture, check the profile info to make sure its up to date ,,and very importantly,it changes the date you were last there.. WE use that date to help confirm there is someone to find.
At that same time (vet visit) ask them to scan the pet for their chip.. you want to confirm it not only is present and working but location as they can migrate.
If the pet is lost please add last known location of the chip to your flyers and Vet/shelter notifications. Id love to say all in the rescue / vet / shelter activities do a through scan when a lost pet is found..but reality is many dont, or use a basic scanner that does not read encrypted chips like those from Avid and AKC. So telling the potential finders the pups chip is located over the base of its tail and its an encrypted type may ensure they lost pet found is scanned in a way your pets chip will be found.

All of ours are chipped and we have never been asked for additional payments. Our pups also have our name and number on their collars.

Thank you for doing that.
Making the call "Are you missing a pet" be it from chip info or number on a tag, is why we do what we do.
