microchip information?

I'm not positive of this, but I believe that dogs who will compete in IPO can have either a Tattoo or a Microchip. I'm getting my pup Microchiped this weekend and was wondering if there is any specific/extra information that has to be on the chip for the sport? Probably a silly question, but I wanted to be sure I wasnt missing anything.

No, any chip will do as long as it can be read at the trial (not all clubs provide a scanner).

According to the rules it is the Handler's responsibility to provide the scanner. So I would not count on the club providing one.

My young dog's ear leather is so dark it is hard to read tattoo so I bought my own scanner, it makes it much easier to walk up, scan the dog and hand the scanner to judge to check...


Hope this helps
