The 2016 Dog Microchipping Legislation
What the new Dog Microchipping law will mean to all those of us who keep dogs
From 6 April 2016 all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales will be legally required to be microchipped and their details registered on one of the authorised databases such as Petlog. Northern Ireland has already introduced this measure.
The idea behind this move, which has been campaigned for by numerous animal pressure groups working collectively as the Microchipping Alliance, a group which includes the British Veterinary Association, the Kennel Club, the Dogs Trust and the RSPCA, is to encourage all dog owners to take responsibility for keeping their pet.
Come an visit us at Bark in the Park on Sunday 3 September. This event is organised by Rushden Town Council visit their website for details.
