Lots of places can scan a dog's chip including a veterinary practice, dog warden, rescue centre and some boarding services.
Some people choose friends or family, others their trusted dog walker or boarder.
Before you go away on holiday you should add the contact details for the home boarder or kennel your dog is staying with.
If your pet is lost or injured the chances of it being found and scanned for a microchip are extremely high.
However, if your details are not up to date there will be no way for you to know someone has your pet.
