With effect from 6th April 2016, it is a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped. All dogs aged 8 weeks and over must be microchipped and the microchip must contain up to date contact information.
If your dog does not have a microchip or if your current details are not recorded on an approved database, you could face a fine of up to £500 on conviction.
