What the law says

Dog tag

By law your dog must wear a tag with you name, postcode and phone number engraved on it. The tag is attached to your dog’s collar which must be worn when out and about.


It is a legal requirement to have microchip identification for your dog. This is carried out by your vet and can be done at the same time as its vaccinations.

Poo bags

By law you are required to clean up your dog’s poo. You may be fined if caught not clearing up after your dog. Poo bags can be bought in a variety of places including the supermarket, pet shops or online. They are very affordable but nappy bags are just as good and a cheaper alternative.
