It’s now only a month until it will become compulsory for all dogs to be microchipped in the UK. The new law comes into force on April 2016 and will also require owner’s to ensure contact details are kept up to date on the relevant databases. This applies whether your moving house with your dog, or if the dog is transferring to a new owner. You can read some of the finer details about the new legislation on the Kennel Club website.
If you need to get your dog microchipped, or want advice on ensuring your contact details are up to date please call us on 01280 703451.
