star this property answer text <p>Since April 2016 every dog in Great Britain is required to be microchipped with the keeper’s details. Over 90% of dog owners are compliant with the microchipping requirement which allows dogs to be traced back to their keeper and if the dog strays allows dog and keeper to be reunited quickly. There are no plans to reintroduce the dog licence in England.</p> more like this
