Dog owners reminded of need for licence

Tue, 07 Feb 2017

Dog owners on the Isle of Man are being reminded of the need to licence their pets.

Owners are legally required to have a licence for their animals, as well as ensuring they wear a collar and identification with the owner's name and address while outside.

Tynwald is currently considering legislation which could make it mandatory for dogs on the Island to be microchipped, which would result in the licensing system being scrapped.

However, the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is warning owners not to let their licences expire while the legislation is still being considered.

Dog licences cost £20 per year with forms available from the Post Office. Working, rescue and registered assistance dogs don't need licences.
