Thread: All dogs to be micro-chipped

  1. #1

    All dogs to be micro-chipped

    Is this a good thing ?

    All Scottish dogs to be microchipped from next year - BBC News

    ps... It says in the article that the law is to be introduced in England and Wales at the same time.
    Just in case you think they are picking on "Scottish dogs" .

    I've done it to all my dogs in the last 18 years anyway, especially as they often don't wear collars when working. Don't see anything contentious with it at all.

    I see no problems with it mines chipped I also think dogs should be licensed again and proper checks done to see who's fit to have one.

    I may be biased, but I would consider a chip as basic dog care. Every dog should have one, absolutely no excuse.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I have one done and two that aren`t.

    The elder is nigh on 13 and won`t be getting chipped, he is not having anything done that isn`t vital.

    Well done Bob, I didn't see that one coming .
    Ours are always chipped. I just put it up for discussion.
    The only thing I'll say is that I doubt the system will have the will and the teeth (see what I did there ) to deal with the folk who don't bother.

    Can't see it being a bad thing, but how will it be policed.
