Due to changes in microchipping legislation in April 2016, all dogs over 8 weeks old must be microchipped, the details must be correctly registered and kept up to date. We offer a range of dog tags, engraved while you wait at the kennels. Through buying one of our tags, you are ensuring your dog is compliant with the law and helping to support our work.
NB. It is an offence under the Control of Dogs Order 1992 for a dog to be in a public place without a collar and tag with the owner’s name and address on it, even when the owner is in charge of the dog. If your dog does not have a collar and tag, you can be prosecuted and fined up to £5000. The owner commits this offence even if the dog has a microchip.
