Dog owners are reminded that new laws mean all dogs must be microchipped from 6 April 2016 -and to help support local communities, Dover District Council is offering free dog microchipping at events and venues across Dover, Deal and Sandwich.

The events will offer people the chance to get their pets microchipped, to find out about the new rules, and to meet the dog warden team. Visitors will also be able to find out more about the new Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) that came into operation from 27 July.
