Licensing & Permits
All dogs, with the exception of guide dogs, must have a valid licence. Before you get a dog or a puppy you must get a licence for it. It is against the law not to. A puppy that stays with its mother must have a licence by the age of six months.
Since April 2012 it is no longer possible to licence a dog without including a valid microchip number for your dog. Microchipping is a simple, safe modern identification method which is permanent and can’t be removed, so even if someone steals your dog it can still be traced by its microchip.
Dogs must also wear an identity disc or tag, stating the owner’s name, address and contact telephone number.
