1. Intro

This covers what we hope to achieve over the duration of the course, and what is going to be learned

This gives a definition of what a microchip is

3. How do pet microchips work?

This explains exactly how a microchip works and we can scan the information contained of them

4. The scanner

Scanners will vary from their models, so understanding how each one works is very important

5. Legal requirements

Tthis explains how the law requires all canine animals should be microchipped before 8 weeks old

6. Preparing the environment and equipment

This section explains how it is necessary to have a table ready to microchip on that can be accessed from two sides, this will allow the handler to stand opposite the implanter to restrain the animal

7. Handling and restraint of dogs for microchipping

There are some simple steps to take into consideration when dealing with dogs to make them feel comfortable and relaxed in a situation the dog may find strange and unusual e.g. different environment, new people

8. Implantation site for animals

This is between the animal's shoulder blades below the scruff of the animal's neck. You must not implant in the scruff of the neck
