All dogs are required by law to wear a collar and an identification tag showing the name and address of the owner. It is also a good idea to add a contact telephone number as well, to help reunite dog and owner even faster.
The Council's own dog registration scheme has been set up to promote the principles of responsible dog ownership. Registering your dog with the Council is one of the best ways to help ensure that you are reunited with your dog as soon as possible should it stray. Registration costs £2.00 per dog and each dog will receive a tag with a unique ID number engraved on it, along with the council’s telephone number.
Please note that from April 2016, it has been a requirement that all dogs are micro chipped and registered on a national database.
