Microchipping advice and events.

The law

All dogs over 8 weeks old must be micropchipped.  Any owners of dogs which have not been microchipped and registered may be served with a notice requiring them to do so within 21 days.  Failure to comply with the notice will render the owner liable to pay a £500 fine.
