Microchipping Legislation

Don't forget that, as a result of new legislation, from April 2016 all dogs must be microchipped.

There are lots of places that you can get your dog microchipped by a fully qualified individual for free including selected Vets and, by appointment, at Dogs Trust Rehoming Centres.

We do appreciate the debate around the difficulties in enforcing the law and whether this move will actually help promote more responsible ownership as desired but there are some clear positive points to this legislation. It will undoubtedly help reunite more lost and stolen dogs and it will act as a deterrent for dog theft.

What are your thoughts on the change in legislation?
