Fun way to train your dog
Animal warden Lyn Cook said: “Good dog behaviour and obedience is important. The Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Schemes is a fun way to train your dog and learn how to keep them happy and healthy.”
“Microchipping your dog became law on 6 April 2016. Dog owners can be fined up to £500 if their dog isn’t microchipped by the time it’s 8 weeks old. A microchip would help reunite owners with their dog if they were lost, found hurt, or even stolen.”
