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.

It seems like in their rush to take the moral high-ground they just … 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!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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The only dogs that have ever attacked our boxers have been terriers … 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

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.

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: www.surveymonkey.com/s/dogsconsultation2012

This survey does not collect any personal data.

Alternatively, you can e-mail your response to: animalwelfare.consultations@defra.gsi.gov.uk

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

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.

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)

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.
