As most people are aware as from April 2016 all dogs have to be microchipped, the English bulldog above is one of litter of four we microchipped recently.

What a lot of breeders aren’t aware of that it is their responsibility not only to get their puppies microchipped, before they leave at the age of eight weeks, but that the puppies must be first registered in the breeders name, and not as we constantly keep seeing in the new owners name. Failure to do this and the breeder is breaking the law and could be fined.

We hope this helps breeders know exactly what is expected of them so they don’t fall foul of the law.
