In 1992 it became a legal requirement that any dog in a public place must wear a collar with a tag containing information of the owner such as address and name. In April 2016, it then became compulsory to have an up-to-date microchip.
A microchip is a small electronic chip, around the size of a grain of rice, which is implanted under the dog's skin and contains a unique number that can be read by a scanner. The dog owner's contact details relating to each number are logged on a central database, so should the dog ever go missing or be stolen it can be scanned by the authorities and returned to his owner swiftly and safely.
Every year, thousands of stray dogs are unable to be reunited with their owners because their tag and chip details are not up to date. So, if you move to a new house or change your phone number, make updating the details on your dog’s tag and chip a number one priority. It is also a legal requirement to keep these details up to date. If your details are not correct you could face a fine.
It’s simple to update the details for your dog’s microchip: you can do it online, by telephone or by post, depending on which database your chip is registered to. Charges for updating your chip details vary across the microchip databases.
If you aren’t sure who your chip details are registered with, you can call any of the companies listed on our below and they will be able to tell you which company you need to contact:
We offer discounts for rescues to help prevent the amount of pets ending up homeless due to a simple case of not being able to be identified. This discount applies to rescue centres, small charities & more.
It is law that breeders are required to microchip their litter before they leave for their new homes. The breeder must be the first recorded keeper of the puppies on the microchip database: As the first keeper of the litter of puppies it is the breeder's legal responsibility to get their puppies' microchipped and these details will be recorded against the microchip for the life of the dog. The breeder must not record the new owner as the first keeper of the puppy.
We offer discounts for multiple puppies/kittens!
