We recommend that you get your dog microchipped by your vet. This involves putting a very small microchip under the skin of the dog. Putting the chip in place only takes a few seconds and is quite painless.
If the dog gets lost, it can be scanned electronically for the chip number and the owner contacted.
Since 2016 it is a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped.
