On 6 April 2016 it will become law for all dogs in the UK to have a microchip
Get your dog microchipped
It is the keeper’s responsibility to ensure their dog is microchipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases.
Keep your chip up to date
It is also the keeper’s responsibility to keep their contact details up-to-date on the databases.
Where a dog is transferred to a new keeper, the new keeper must, unless the previous keeper has already done so, record their details and any change in the dog’s name with the database on which the dog’s details are recorded.
