Compulsory Microchipping in England and Wales
It will become law in 2016 for all dogs to be micro-chipped as a means of identification should the dog stray or become involved in an attack. Micro-chipping is already compulsory for a ‘Pet Passport’.
The Kennel Club manages Petlog, the UK’s largest lost and found database for micro-chipped pets, which was established to help reunite lost dogs with their owners. For further information visit Petlog’s website www.petlog.org.uk or telephone 0844 4633 999
Dogs can be micro-chipped by your Vet.
Dogs need to be positively identified when being entered for a GSD Breed Council Survey and micro-chipping is an accepted method of identification.
