Canine Concern Scotland Trust would like to remind all Therapet Volunteers to make sure their Therapets are micro chipped as per the new law which comes into force on the 6th April 2016
“A new law regarding the compulsory micro chipping of dogs comes into force from the 6th of April 2016, all dogs must be micro chipped and registered to an approved database by the time they are 8 weeks old.”
Some basic points on Micro Chipping
Get your dog micro chipped
It is the keeper's responsibility to ensure their dog is micro chipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases.
Keep your chip up to date
It is also the keeper's responsibility to keep their contact details up-to-date on the databases.
Where a dog is transferred to a new keeper, the new keeper must, unless the previous keeper has already done so, record their details and any change in the dog’s name with the database on which the dog’s details are recorded.
