Does a microchipped dog need to wear a collar and tag?

In short, the answer is yes even if it is now law for all dogs to be microchipped.

A stray dog with its name, address and postcode on its collar is more likely to be handed back to the owner by the finder. This would save the owner the cost of paying Kennel fees.

If you've not had your dog microchipped details of local microchip implanters can be found on the Kennel Club website.
