I explained that if they got stolen you would have to actually find them again before you could prove the chip or tattoo made them yours. He doesn't want to put locks on the gates.
I explained how them being purebreds, male and female, young, they would be prime targets for theft. He still thinks I'm nuts.
I knew of people that had some husky that where so friendly the owners got a watch dog to keep people from stealing them. The cops been warning people where I live to not leave their dogs outside or in a car alone as there has people stealing dogs to sell to labs for drug money . I never leave my dogs outside after I had my Samoyed stolen and chips where not around then.
