The certification process was very simple and user friendly. My little Morkie is such a comfort yo me since my husband passed away, I'm happy I can now include him in many of my outings!

I received my package very quickly. Everything was very nice. I am very pleased. The only concern I have is that I ordered a small best, using you pound scale, and it just fits my dog and she is only 18 lbs. In an case, all is good and I highly recommend your products to everyone in need of identifying their dog.
