    Micro chipping working dogs

    Does anyone know if the new law coming in soon about microchipping dogs includes working dogs or its just pet dogs ?

    Don't know the exact month but early 2016. Average price I think now is 10 however when it comes compulsory I reckon it will probably double if not more.

    From the 6th of April 2016, all dogs must be microchipped and registered to an approved database by the time they are 8 weeks old.

    But do all dogs have to be chipped by then? Or just dogs born after then?
    I thought scotland was a year earlier than Eng with this?

    Not even sure which of my dogs is chipped or not. Got 1 done for free but sure its a different database thing to some of the others.
    Know my spaniel is still in the previous owners name and i've had him about 7 or 8 years

    This is a Devolved responsibility so England, Scotland and Wales will all have their own legislation but all a fairly similar and will require ALL dogs to be chipped from April 2016.

    Just ignore it , like I`ll be doing.

    Ignoring it is an option I suppose. But I can see that if your dog goes AWOL and is picked up by the council or handed in as a stray to the council, that might cause you problems. I suppose if it's an elderly dog, that might not arise, but on the basis that if you break the law for long enough, eventually you'll come a cropper.

    Whatever next? A dog licence for 38 1/2p or whatever it was?
