What information to include on a dog tag

Posted by Mike Trevena 07/07/2016

Recently we have been dealing with a large number of dogs that have recall issues; some of which are running such distances that they end up getting separated from their owners and are reported as lost!
It is a legal requirement for your dog to have a tag or plate on their collar which displays the owners details, which must include your name and address, it is also advisable to include a contact number.

Dog theft is currently on the rise, therefore we strongly advise against displaying your dogs name on any visible tag or plate, and although not a legal requirement we fully endorse the use of microchips.

You can find out more about microchipping by reading The Compulsory Permanent Identification of Dogs by the Dogs Trust.

If your dog has recall issues, visit our Training page to find out more about our group, one to one and residential dog training.
