Compulsory Microchipping

From 2016, every dog owner must have their pet microchipped.

This is great news and not before time. It’s not going to stop the problem of stray dogs completely, while there are irresponsible owners and back street breeders out there, but, hopefully, it’s a step in the right direction. Too many dogs are losing their lives in pounds because their owners cannot be traced. See link below.
