The law's now changed (as of Apr 2016)... All dogs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland must be micro-chipped. . This will normally set you back around £20 at your local vets. The good

Dog's Trust also offer a free service where they will come to your home and microchip your dog or litter of puppies for free.
This isn't advertised but if you phone they give you the implanters phone number to make an appointment.
I'm not sure if this is nationwide, but definitely covers all of Yorkshire.
I breed dogs and they've come out to me 4 times this year.
Why would you want to do that? It means someone brings them back!!
Do you think they'd chip the kids for me? :)
Regardless of whether you think some of the management are paid too much, they are a registered charity and will have a certain level of scrutiny over the way they are run. However as a charity it amazes me how many dog owners just milk them for free chipping and free neutering and other things they have done. If you want to own a dog, then you have to pay for the costs of owning that dog and shouldn't be taking money from a charity to do so. I have no idea why DT don't means test it, or link it to benefits, but perhaps the administration for that is a nightmare, but anyway, people should just take a moment and think about it before they jump in and take the freebie.

If you can afford a dog then you can afford to get it neutered [at your own expense] and if you can't, you cannot afford a dog.
Hear, hear. That's exactly what I said to my sister who was left with our 9 year old family dog after the death of our mother - she should just dump her in a shelter. Apparently that's "callous and mean" though, crazy liberals these days...
A 9 year old dog should already be neutered and chipped! If you cannot look after a dog, it is callous and mean not to give it up. There are a lot of people out there who would love to adopt an older dog already trained.
Don't be so ridiculous. There are not a lot of people waiting to adopt old dogs (why on Earth do you think so many are euthanised?).
Though your suggestion that a dog is better off being ripped away from a loving family and put in a shelter than living un-spayed is so absurd I can only imagine you're clueless on the subject anyway.
We recently looked into adopting an older dog, but round here they are all large dogs (staffies and the like) or have behavioural problems and not suitable for living with another dog.
We waited until we were financially comfortable before having a dog. We would have loved one a couple of years before, but knew we couldn't afford it until I finished my studies and started earning. As soon as we registered him at the vets we sorted out all his booster jabs, chipping, and scheduled him for neutering.
I'm not sure what suggestion I made about giving up a dog just because they're not neutered? I know plenty of dogs who haven't been (show dogs) which isn't an issue as the owners are responsible. My issue is with the irresponsible owners who buy dogs without understanding what it actually takes to look after a dog.
How about the bit when you said "a 9 year old dog should already be neutered - if you can't look after a dog...". Not that there are any plans to spay her now anyway, charity or no charity.
Then you should have said your issue is with irresponsible owners who don't understand what it takes to look after a dog instead of using Daily Mail-esque soundbites for situations you don't fully grasp.
I also hope you develop a slightly stronger bond with your dog over time so your first thought if times are tough isn't "let's get rid of it"!
Yup I'd have to argue vehemently against that, ok, so pyro IS a slight possibility ..but we don't force human females to go through the process, however "big practise" vets are in business to extract coin & often rely on your ignorance as often witnessed by what is dispensed for an animal at premium cost compared to walking into a supermarket for simple remedial action, & that word again proper substantial, well balanced, not out of a fricking can DIET.
ALSO when you tie the ends of a bitch, especially an older one it frequently does lead to incontinence! ..be that dribbles or full blown, all of which add up as to how long an animal is going to be allowed to dodge the final needle! ..so if you suddenly have an older bitch seen to on your say so you could be shortening that dogs life considerably & giving them neurosis in the meantime, ..the guilt of a dog who has peed on its bedding / carpet unwittingly etc.
Your blanket statement & subsequent hole digging is utter cr @p raspberrysherbert many folk either completely restrict access for a bitch when it is in season, & many folk upon getting a dog pay closer attention to garden access / security for the purpose of keeping the dog safe & fools of humans out, no neutering needed than they ever would consider otherwise.
The process of 2 dogs mating isn't typically "wham bam thankyou mam" & if you are with a bitch on heat in the street you can still boot a feckless owners dog off lead up the **** with the two legs you are in possession of correct!?
How about teaching folk when peak flow duration actually is (the realistically fertile zone) ...to observe puffiness within a bitch's hind quarters, to calendar count & note the dog's behavioural changes & needs, ..folk'll learn a hec of a lot more about an animal from that end of the matter, if they can understand hormonal changes in the same species then they should surely be able to suss out a bitch in season (before, during & after) & how it alters behaviourally & how you should to it!
owner of 4 dogs with 4 very different profiles.
With your attitude are you a member of wood green WGAS & their profiteering doctrine? ...your comments take on their tone & attitude, too damn simplistic & blinkered!

It seems like in their rush to take the moral high-ground they just mis-spoke and didn't actually mean that dogs must be spayed to be looked after properly. As you say, mine has never been in a situation where she could get pregnant anyway (helped by her irritating cowardliness towards other dogs!).

Though I don't quite agree it's a case of "big practise vets" trying to get more money - there are definite health benefits for being spayed. They are somewhat offset by the health risks that increase once they're spayed, but I'd wager it's still slightly on the side of beneficial to do it. Add in the quite disgusting blood dripping every season and the risk some dogs have of getting pregnant, I'd say it's perfectly reasonable for a vet to recommend it. My "big practise" vet however said he personally wouldn't bother when we asked when she was about 5. The stereotype people often apply to anyone who works for "big pharma"/banks/MPs etc. is rather unfair - you seem to forget these are all individuals and aren't defined by the company they work for!

If you ever wanted proof even Dogs Trust agree you've got a dog with a very high potential of being aggressive...

Collies, for example, are considered aggressive? I know people always come out with the "my pitball is lovely" line, but I've never seen an aggressive collie - and parts of my family are obsessed with them!

There must be some other criteria for making that list - perhaps they're the breeds that end up in Dogs Trust shelters most often, which doesn't necessarily mean they're aggressive. Collies would presumably be on the list because they're intelligent and very active, meaning they aren't the easiest dogs to look after.


Folks we have a bite
Page3092 I am no scrounger, I have empathy for people,but then you would have to look that up, it's called a dictionary, try looking. you are so ignorant. The very fact that someone on a low budget is willing to pay to have their pet neutered shows they are responsible loving people. Otherwise they would just abandon the animal. Money doesn't make a good owner or parent for that matter. I have been fortunate enough to always have a good job but I see many people who purchase the latest animal as if it's a fashion accessory only to discard it when bored with it despite the fact that it has been expensive as money is no object to them. As for their children money is also lavished on them but not their time.

people on benefits should be neutered
People like you should be neutered, pensioners who have worked all their life and fought wars are on some of the benefits listed, along with service men and women disabled through serving their country. Your ignorance is disgusting.


​scrounger
Hi Jim, we have several vets in the family, for instance "big" animal (horses, cows etc) who obviously treat dogs etc too.. doubtless the opinion formed is from experience on both sides of the fence, due to our own folk being busy attending calls we don't burden them with care, but we do report back on costs & the like.
The latest "incident" from a big practise was to ignore a longstanding prescription & give a different spec of tablet, (supposedly checked off by two competent people) ..which has potentially lessened the animal in questions life, ..frankly the response from the practise's head vet was risible.

We don't mind the blood, frankly tails spraying blood from knocks on everything are far worse (boxers since the docking ban), ..longlasting trauma in several of our dogs, like having a junkie shooting up for months on end, on every surface.
Plus, we tiled & put down wood floors, bleachy mops are par for the course where paws are concerned. very little actual carpet. ;)

As far as I am aware the only exception is a "professional breeder". They have to pay. I don't know why they are the exception unfortunately.

"Free" - They will make you feel like worthless scum if you don't donate and anything meaningfull will come close to standard microchipping price.
Rightly so. If you can afford to pay and don't then, well, you hit the nail on the head.
Why is it "rightly so", many can't afford an extra, albeit one-off, expense like this enforced upon them. I thought the purpose of charities was to help those in need.
Your saying £20 is an expense?
Anything that costs money is an expense. Your view on this is very narrow minded, consider someone that has gone through the hell of losing their job, their partner, their house (taken away following no income), then any possessions of value to pay off any debts. They only have their dog left to keep them sane as they struggle by on what little benefit they get to feed and heat themselves. Suddenly they're forced to take £20 from that budget else risk getting fined or whatever the punishment is. Now they get the chance to get the chipping done free and you scorn them for not donating or abusing a charity that people who are "well-off" in comparison fund. Nice attitude mate.
I didn't want to bite because that's what he was after!! But well put pal!!
I agree with both points made but I agree with the first more. I have 2 dogs myself and when I decided to get them I made that decision to look after them no matter what. I have been in awful monetary situations and that is what charity is there for but I would rather go without myself then not provide them with what they need ( good food, insurance, jabs, worming, flea treatment and chipping, surgery costs, etc.. ) and make a donation or pay full price. It's people that can afford it but would rather have a few drinks at the pub or a pack of smokes then pay themselves that abuse the system and charities in place. At the end of the day it's a good thing to get them chipped and it's a good thing that help is available to people that actually need it. But £20 per dog to get chipped is nothing, you take that on when you take on the dog or you shouldn't get one.

Spot on.

Seriously you need to get a grip of reality. That's the norm pal!! Well for normal people anyways.
it rather seems that your reality is in your own mind. that is not the norm. usually there are no dog bins. if there were most people would use them.
Honest I really can't believe you wouldn't carry a poo bag around? No wonder the country is in **** state pardon the punt!!

are you really being that dense ?

I do carry bags with me to clean up. l like the vast majority of dog owners I carry at least 6 bags with me every time we go out.

.my comment was that people seem to think you can make them disappear by magic. I clean up and then (if there is no dog bin within10 minutes walk) put the bag in any bin I see. some people get annoyed that I have put it into their bin tho.

my point was quite simple. if I am out for a two hour walk I'm not going to carry it home with me or carry it around like some smelly talisman for around an hour.

do you understand now ?

Cracking idea. Are we permitted to take our children instead of the dogs??

Sure, If you want them returned that is. Most complain they can't get them to leave, being returned would be a nightmare.

My Staffie is now 14 but many years ago we were advised against having her chipped. Apparently cruel dog thieves were digging the chip out of the back of the neck to stop stolen dogs being identified. I decided to exercise the same level of care over my dog as my child....or are they going to have to be microchipped too now?
What a poor argument!

What's wrong with a collar and tag? Much easier to return a dog if you can read its tag.

Seriously? So you have read that a chip can cause cancer but you haven't read about dog theft/baiting/fighting? A collar can be removed in a split second. Read a newspaper maybe. Chips help return lost pets every single day. They aren't a replacement to a collar. It's an additional safeguard.

It's compulsory to have your dog chipped by April 2016. Rspca do monthly free chips for cats and dogs near me, might be worth checking. Majority of rspca districts are on Facebook now, could drop them a message?

Simple answer. All dogs should have insurance. Exactly like a car and see how many dogs would be owned by chavs and Ned's then. Same rules apply as cars. Your dog must be chipped and registered so if stopped by police they could tell if you had insurance and if not then the dog would be removed. The chip would be logged to the owner and if there was any abuse from the owner in the past then petlog would keep this updated so any future purchases or dealing with the police would show this. Drastic measures need to be taken with dogs now as too many lazy workshy losers have them with no insurance.

& exactly like car ownership - those who are irresponsible won't bother with insurance any way.
But good one on advocating a tax on the rest of us. We definitely need another one of them ;)

a jack Russell took a hold of my boxers lips and started swinging from it . I went to remover her dog but I was told to stop as the jack Russell was only trying to establish dominance . to much Cesar Milan can be just as bad as some smackie with a staffy .
The only dogs that have ever attacked our boxers have been terriers (there is a particular West Highland Terrier in the village that has had a pop at most big dogs around here!).
I would go as far as to say, the bigger the dog, the better the temperament. They don't seem to have little man syndrome :)

We have the same problem here, a Westie ran out of its house to have a go at my younger black lab, who's now afraid of all little white dogs, and the last dog that went for my girls was a jack russell - an old man owns it, he lets it off the lead in a lead-on park, I was walking my two black labs past him and it dived for my younger dog and bit her face.

I guess I should have reported him earlier for letting it off, but I figure he's old and without an off-lead run, his dog wouldn't get much exercise. That'll teach me to think I was being kind.
Love the way people compare digs to any other animals, sick of hearing of kids getting mauled to death by cats.....the thing is they are animals with and can and have turned for no reason or simply been playing and not realized there consequences....they have deadly weapons but at the end of the day are animals so should never be trusted with children....http://www.dogsbite.org/dangerous-dogs-pit-bull-myths.php

Wanted to get our boy microchipped on this scheme, then make a donation to the dogs trust, but the only local vet offering the service here is not someone I would take an animal to see ever again.

Going to any dogs trust centre you can also have your dog chipped for free by appointment, not being a driver though, it was impossible for me to get to the local centre.

We had him done at our usual vet for ten pounds last week instead at the same time he had his booster vaccs.

The dogs trust scheme for subsidised neutering is another excellent program they run. We couldn't afford the full price of his snip, but under the dt scheme the cost was only £30. Absolutely brilliant

Funnily enough, all by staffies, or staff crosses. You can understand why they have a bad rep.

I've got a staffy and he's the most friendly dog you'll ever meet, he's a year old and has been attacked twice already - once by a jack russell and the other by an alsatian, so the accusation you just threw out there that you can 'understand why they have a bad rep' has no substance. It's not the breed, it's the owner. If you're a dog owner, you should atleast know that.


Obviously "PatkW" is a know it all, and even though he said more assholes have staffies than other breeds could very well be true, but considering hes a know it all its funny that he had to "pay alot of money" to train his dog and wasn't able to do this himself :)

I trained my dog myself and shes always been a lovely dog :)

I like how you called me a know-it-all twice. ADHD? Sorry, I'd rather trust professionals with *some* aspects of dog training and socialisation than some d-i-y'er who watches re-runs of the Dog Whisperer. You have a nice day now with your lovely dog.

As far as I know I don't have ADHD? as far as I know I don't have ADHD? I will have a nice dog that I trained myself and not pay some Cesar Milan wannabe to do it :)
PatkW
...and again you're just another unqualified d.i.y'er. Some aspects of dog training are best accomplished with the guidance of someone that really knows what they're doing. Early socialisation & training are best done in supervised groups. You can't teach your dog how to behave around other dogs without other dogs. Preferably lots of them of different sizes and temperament.This is especially becoming a problem because of breeders taking pups away from their dam and litter mates far too early. You can't just take your animal to the local park now and again and say "job done".If you've trained your dog single-handed using TEH INTERNET, I guarantee you that you haven't done half as good a job as your self-congratulating back slapping is making out. If it was that easy, there'd be no market for trainers and behaviourists. Maybe you just think all other owners, or prospective owners are just stupid, seems as it's all just common sense?Again, another one for the Hotukdeals ignore list.

..and again, you're talking sh*t. where in what i said before did i state that i didn't take my dog to socialisation classes? the only way i actually found out to do that was THROUGH internet research. you gotta be pretty dumb to socialise ur dog without any other dogs out there. you really haven't got a leg to stand on, research on the internet doesn't mean ur not doing it the right way, you just have to go to legitimate sources. one way that works for you, may not work for another, so before you start judging you should think about what you say, keyboard warrior.
...and again you're just another unqualified d.i.y'er. Some aspects of dog training are best accomplished with the guidance of someone that really knows what they're doing.

Funnily enough, all by staffies, or staff crosses. You can understand why they have a bad rep.
I've got a staffy and he's the most friendly dog you'll ever meet, he's a year old and has been attacked twice already - once by a jack russell and the other by an alsatian, so the accusation you just threw out there that you can 'understand why they have a bad rep' has no substance. It's not the breed, it's the owner. If you're a dog owner, you should atleast know that.
Obviously "PatkW" is a know it all, and even though he said more assholes have staffies than other breeds could very well be true, but considering hes a know it all its funny that he had to "pay alot of money" to train his dog and wasn't able to do this himself :)I trained my dog myself and shes always been a lovely dog :)
I like how you called me a know-it-all twice. ADHD? Sorry, I'd rather trust professionals with *some* aspects of dog training and socialisation than some d-i-y'er who watches re-runs of the Dog Whisperer. You have a nice day now with your lovely dog.

There are other ways to train your dog instead of watching the Dog Whisperer. I've trained my dog by myself with the help of various forums, research and plain old common sense. Again, something you've said which has no substance.

Wonderful, now the government knows exactly where your dog is, only 1 step closer to chipping our children.

At least it would keep the little ***** off the streets!
Toxocara canis is a roundworm found in dogs. Roundworm eggs are found in dog mess, which can easily be picked up by young children. This causes stomach upsets, sore throats, asthma and in rare cases blindness. The eggs can remain active in the soil for many years, long after the dog mess has weathered away.

For GoD sack spend a couple of quids on humans, they are in much greater need than bloody dogs.oO
Will they chip the wife?
Great Thanks. Heat Added!
My cat was microchipped by dog warden in hull for a tenner :)

If I had my way then all dog would have to be muzzled when out in public.
ALL dogs have the potential to be dangerous. Amazes me why we still continue to tolerate pseudo wolves in our public places.
Thanks to everyone.

For those interested in the dangerous dogs debate DEFRA have started a consulation and is is seeking views on a proposed package of measures aimed at tackling irresponsible ownership of dogs. : http://www.defra.gov.uk/consult/2012/04/23/dangerous-dogs-1204/

The main proposals:

•Extending the criminal offence of allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control to private property (where the dog has a right to be);

•Compulsory microchipping of dogs;

•Removing the need to seize and kennel all dogs where court proceeding are pending; and

•Increase the fee for placing a dog on the Index of Exempted Dogs

The proposals, along with other work we are already carrying out, provide a mix of preventative, educational and punitive measures which are designed to tackle a variety of problems (e.g. allowing dogs to become dangerous, status dogs, allowing dogs to stray and general irresponsible ownership leading to poor welfare and anti-social behaviour).

How to respond

Anyone may reply to this consultation. Defra would like to hear from anyone with an interest in responsible dog ownership, including: enforcement agencies; people working with dogs; animal welfare organisations; dog keeping orgainsations; and the general public.

You can complete the survey on-line at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/dogsconsultation2012

This survey does not collect any personal data.

Alternatively, you can e-mail your response to: [email protected]

You may also send your comments, or any requests for copies of the documents, by post to:

Dangerous Dogs Team
Animal Welfare
Area 8B, 9 Millbank
c/o 17 Smith Square
London
SW1P 3JR

Any comments on the proposals in this consultation document should be sent by 15 June 2012.
Thanks for posting OP - I heartily approve of free microchipping and I would like to see all pets done.

i support the dogs trust 100%,my small poodle was savaged by a staffi in january this year,£300 vet bill dog was lucky to survive,it will haunt me forever,the dog just went straight for her throat.The staffi was about 4years old not microchipped,not claimed and it was put down,what good is micro chipping when the small group who own these dogs and give them abad name,breed them in thier living rooms get them chipped plus it wont stop any dog being dangerous.There are more and more dog on dog attacks and there is no law against this.Ive spoken to my mp and am not going to let this rest,DEFRA have done nothing to resolve this situation.
Welcome to HUKD, cindyboo; I am sorry to hear of this awful attack, glad that your pooch survived and well done for getting involved.

I saw on the news yesterday that there were over 200k reported dog assaults on people in England last year - what that included I don't know but it's a situation that needs to be tackled.

Microchipping most animals should be compulsory. The amount that are abandoned and left on the streets, get stolen or just go missing is phenomenal, so it just makes sense. If all dogs and cats were microchipped, all it would take was for a dog warden, local rescue or vet to scan the animal to find out where it's come from, and all helps in terms of prosecution for stolen animals, dog baiting and other things...

Good on the Dogs Trust. All our dogs are already microchipped, but would also be tempted to do cats (and my girlfriend's rabbits, which are bigger than the average cat). Rated hot. Don't forget to give them a donation if you get animals microchipped with them.

opps - this page isn't here?

Just for dogs? Or cats too?

I thought pdsa for free only applies if u receive council tax benefit or housing benefit ??? Look at there website. Like most things in life these days the freeloaders never need to put hand in pocket


You must be talking about tax evaders. Those are the people raking it in - everyone else is just trying to survive. Or more likely you are a mug (aka Daily Mail reader)

When my business was tanked by a defaulting customer, the PDSA ensured my Dog was healthy and so eversince I've used them and paid full-whack for their services.


I really appreciate you doing that.
Says a lot about the society we live in today.

the people that work there and help the animals are top people, here is the kick, the people who run it at the top are the greedy gits who put your cash straight onto the stock market to make more money, these charaties are getting all the same, if u wanna help these places take stuff to them i.e. dog food, blankets, etc, that way your donantion doesnt become another cha ching for them.
