In a new law passed, all dogs must be microchipped after the age of 8 weeks or owners risk being fined hundreds. The measures will mean that all owners are responsible for their dogs and the country will have a national database of every pet dog. It's hoped that it will reduce the number of abandoned and stray dogs.

It's been the law in N Ireland for the past few years and it has proven to have a really big impact on the number of dogs that are returned to owners after they've gone missing. Currently "nearly 120,000 dogs are dumped or lost each year and less than half of those are reunited with their owners" which is a saddening statistic. sad.gif

I really welcome this law, what do you all think? Are your dogs microchipped? Do you think it's manageable? Discuss ~

This is a really good idea, will be an extremely helpful thing for missing dogs. It's so saddening when a pet goes missing, so having something like this to help track them is such a useful and great thing.

I don't own a dog but my cat is microchipped.

I DO think it's a good idea but it's sad that it's needed.

My poor dearly departed Jack got chipped in March last year. Feels like a waste now since he passed the next June. Good idea though for lost/dumped dogs.

I think it's a fab idea. Just as long there is a layer of protection in the system so criminals cannot easily change the data on the chip to sell on stolen pets. Anything that reduces the amount of broken hearts and brings justice to those dogs dumped and left for dead is a positive change in my eyes.

I really don't care for dogs or pets in general but I think this should be extended to other domesticated animals. It's just responsible ownership really.

It's a good idea and should work for the best, though it should apply to pets in general as well as dogs, if anything, cats need this more due to their free, adventurous nature (I certainly see more 'lost cat' signs that dogs when out), hopefully that can go the same way.

We heard that this law was being passed last year so when we got Milo Dressed, we got him chipped and the vets were doing a deal too happy.gif

It's a fantastic idea though. I Like the idea of being able to trace a dog back to his owners.

Same! I can feel it when I'm petting him sometimes and it's weird.

My husband is a dog warden so currently he's super busy microchipping dogs. Although it's the law, I doubt many councils are actually going to enforce it. From what I understand, if a dog is picked up without a chip, and gets returned to its owner, then they'll just get a warning letter telling them to chip.

Check with your local council to see if they can chip your dog for you, if it hasn't been already. They usually do it for free.
