Petlog Registration (microchip registration)


The Kennel Club believes that microchipping makes a clear link between a dog and its owner. More than 100,000 dogs either stray, are lost or stolen each year with many having to be kept in kennels before being re-homed. Having a microchip means they can be reunited quickly with their owners, reducing the stress for dog and owner alike.

As part of the measures the government is introducing secondary legislation under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 from 6 April 2016, requiring the microchipping of all dogs in England. From this date owners will need to have their dog microchipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases available - this is where Petlog Registration comes in.
