My dog only behaves on the leash when in familiar places.

    Yes I agree with linda that a tracker will be useless if the collar is not attached to the dog. But somehow the work or finding seems faster because you don't have to wait for someone to find and scan your dog.

    Any number of reasons, the dog could slip out of the collar, get it stuck on something and break, someone picks up the dog and wants to keep it, first thing they'd do is remove the collar. No way can the microchip get lost, its in the body. Any shelter or animal control would scan for the chip as its the first thing they'd do

    Microchip is really necessary, a tracker is optional.

    Yeah I agree you do have a point linda. But for additional security, I'd attach a tracker to my dog. The search would be faster in case the dog's out of sight.

    Yes I agree with you Linda, microchip is really the best.

    a tracker is fine as long as the collar isn't removed, if someone wants to steal the dog first thing they'd do is remove the collar, but sooner or later the dog will show up someplace and chances are it would be scanned for a chip.

I have all my animals chipped. You pay for the chip and a $20 activation fee which is a one time thing and the chip is activated for life. I then give the number to my vet and one to the town hall with the license and keep one myself
