Did you know that new legislation is being introduced in England in April 2016 that requires all dogs to be microchipped? This includes puppies at eight weeks, before they go to their new homes. There are a number of microchips and databases available through vets and implanters. More information on this is available through the Kennel Club website: www.thekennelclub.org.uk

There are many regulations governing dog control and behaviour in the UK so it is even more important to make sure your dog is safe and correctly trained.
It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, eg:
in a public place, in a private place (eg a neighbour’s house or garden), in the owner’s home. This applies to all dogs.
Your dog is considered dangerously out of control if it injures someone, makes someone worried that it might injure them. A court could also decide that your dog is dangerously out of control if it injures someone’s animal or the owner of the animal thinks they could be injured if they tried to stop your dog attacking their animal
A farmer is allowed to kill your dog if it’s worrying their livestock.
You can be fined up to £20,000 or sent to prison for up to 6 months (or both) if your dog is dangerously out of control. You may not be allowed to own a dog in the future and your dog may be destroyed. If you let your dog injure someone you can be sent to prison for up to 5 years or fined (or both). If you deliberately use your dog to injure someone you could be charged with ‘malicious wounding’. and if you allow your dog to kill someone you can be sent to prison for up to 14 years or get an unlimited fine (or both). If you allow your dog to injure a guide dog you can be sent to prison for up to 3 years or fined (or both).
It is so important for you and yor dog to be trained correctly to help avoid this.
