    My pup was microchipped with the AKC 'reunite' chip very early and I enrolled her in the AKC program. Is this a good setup, or should I look for a different chip now?

    My old dog was about two before she stopped chewing shoes and was safe to leave outside the crate when we were gone. It doesn't hurt to crate them when you're away--rule of thumb is one hour plus...
