To those who show dogs, there’s a great opportunity to have your dogs microchipped for free.
In a Kennel Club press release they have announced that Dogs Trust will attend at Richmond Championship Show for all three days to offer this service. Dogs Trust offer this service to events and communities all over the country as a part of their microchipping campaign.
I hope that as well as providing this service they will also explain WHY it is so important to microchip your dog as well as making others aware of the compulsory microchipping legislation that’s arriving on April 6th 2016. I do take my hat off to Dogs Trust as they have a big task ahead of them to raise awareness, this above all else, a welfare issue. I fear that without raising awareness, the legislation will have minimal effect to the dog community.
The show will be on the 6th-8th September at Loseley Park near Guildford, Surrey.
What do you think, will this be effective? Will you be there? Is this a good opportunity to chip your dog? Leave a comment below!

He turned to me and said, “In order to be happy in life, Mark, you must always have something to look forward to.” And from looking ahead in my diary for July, he certainly wasn’t wrong.
Lets see what’s happening…
