DOG TAG LAW
It is a fact that thousands of pets go missing every year and are not returned to their owner because they have no form of identification. it is extremely important to know that they are identified so that if lost, when found, they can be returned to their owner.
The Control of Dogs Order 1992 mandates that any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner written on it, or engraved on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but advisable).
We can engrave whatever you require but please be aware that the more characters on a line, the smaller the engraving will be.
You can be fined up to £5,000 if your dog does not wear an identification tag.
There are various ways that you may wish to adopt to ensure that the information on your pet's tag ensures that they can be returned to you as quickly as possible. Some people have the dog's name on the tag as a useful assistance if the dog should be found, while others feel this could be used in a more negative way, if a dog should be stolen.
It is also difficult sometimes to display the whole address and telephone number on a small tag. Therefore as your postcode relates to a section of houses in one particular road. If you then add your house number this can accurately identify your address.
