The chip we had trouble reading in Indi was a new chip that was reading right after being inserted. When I finally found it it was still located exactly where it was supposed to be.

Club member has an imported dog with an ISO chip. Her chip constantly gives her issues. It is still where it is supposed to be, but it only reads intermittently. She is the one that discovered the magnet trick.

That magnet thing freaking works! Ever since she showed me it's worked every time I've seen it tried or mentioned it to someone.

Nikon has a tat and chip and so far I've only used the tat but his is so clear you can read it from ten feet away. Whenever I'm asked to put ID on forms I always include both but it seems that for the USCA stuff they only record the tat on whatever paperwork I get back even if I include both. I have the "verification forms" from both the USCA and WDA for the chip and the tat both signed by a vet and keep those in Nikon's binder just in case. I usually try to read his chip at trials if I have the chance but so far have used the tat. For local stuff like the county dog license I use the chip because that is what they are looking for.

Thanks All! So to get an A stamp you need a tattoo? Hmmm... I guess Ill look into that. Haha! Im still considering the tattoo just because it would be easier to show.
