Thousands of pets go missing each year, and a lot of those are never returned to their keepers because their details are not up-to-date on a microchip database and they have no other form of identification (e.g. pet identification tags).
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 engraved or written on it, or engraved on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but advisable).Order a Pet ID Tag
You can be fined £5000 if your dog does not wear an identification tag.
