Buy a dog licence
Everybody who owns a dog must have a dog licence. It is a requirement that dogs are microchipped in order to apply for a dog licence. A microchipping service is provided by your local Vet, please contact them for further information.
A basic dog licence fee is £12.50, however a number of concessions may be applied for if you are :
(i) 65 years or over;
(ii) In receipt of an income related benefit;
(iii) A member of a couple in receipt of income related benefit;
(iv) The owner of a dog who has been sterilised.
