From next Wednesday, April 6, all dogs over eight weeks old must be chipped and the owner’s details registered by law.
Most vets can chip your dog for between £8 and £10, but also look out for free events run by South Holland District Council’s dog warden, with the following taking place over the next few weeks:
• Thursday, March 31: Holbeach Football Club, Boston Rd, Holbeach, 9.30am to noon.
• Monday, April 4: Rookes Pet Store, High Street, Spalding, 9.30am to noon.
A veterinary nurse will be in attendance at both events to offer advice, free nail clipping and free veterinary nurse health checks.
Dog warden Rachel Thompson will also be offering a free chip check on dogs already chipped to provide the chip number to owners that need to change ownership details with the chip provider.
