The Control of Dogs Order 1992 states that ‘any dog in a public place should wear the name and address of the owner either inscribed on the collar or a name plate or disc attached to it’.
With effect from 6th April 2016, it is a legal requirement in England, Scotland and Wales for dogs to be micro-chipped.
Note: After 6th April 2016, all puppies must be micro-chipped by the time they are 8 weeks old. To find out more visit www.gcds.org.uk
