New Microchipping Laws

Don't forget the new laws that come into place from the 6th April 2016

All dog owners in England, Scotland and Wales have until 6 April 2016 to have their dog microchipped and to register them with a government compliant microchip database such as Petlog.

After that date, all puppies must be microchipped and recorded on a microchip database by the time they are 8 weeks old.

Any changes to an owner’s contact details must be updated on their microchip database to ensure compliance with the law. If a dog owner subsequently moves, changes contact telephone number, etc. then the dog is no longer considered microchipped under the new law and enforcement can be taken.
