Microchipping, Ear Tattoos and Insurance

Microchipping, Ear Tattoos and Insurance

Dog Tags and the Law In the UK, the Control of Dogs Order 1992 states that any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner engraved or written on it, or engraved on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but we would recommend this). You can be fined up to £5,000 if your dog does not wear an identification tag You do not have to put your dog’s name on the tag, this is optional. Unfortunately, dog theft is a real danger and if the thief knows the name of your dog this may help them pass on the dog to the unsuspecting new owners because it appears they know the dog because the dog responds to their name. We would, therefore, recommend, you do not put your dog’s name on the tag. An example of the information to put on a dog tag is: Mr A Smtih No 54, BH17 7TD 01202 232218 OR Mr A Smtih No 54 Letsbe Avenue BH17 7TD 01202 232218 All dogs in Wales by 2015 and all dogs in England by 2016 must be microchipped. For free microchipping see the Dogs Trust website For a very visible permeant way of Identifying your dog consider an ear tattoo.
