Microchips have been compulsory for a year now, in Ireland and the UK

In this podcast, recorded at the start of April 2017, the issue of compulsory microchips is discussed.

Under Irish and UK law, it is now compulsory to have all dogs microchipped and registered on a government-licensed registry. It is now illegal to sell puppies (or even to give puppies away for free) if they are not microchipped.

This law may not be enforced strictly, but it is there, and in time, it will be fully enforced. It’s in the animals’ interests for this to be done, in any case.
