Responsible dog ownership

National lockdown: Stay at home. You must not leave your home unless necessary. Find out what you can and cannot do.

It is a legal requirement that any dog of 8 weeks or over is microchipped and your details are kept up to date.

Free microchipping

Middlesbrough Council offers a free microchipping service. You can request to have your dog microchipped by either telephoning us on 01642 726001 or by completing the online microchipping request form.

We hold regular joint campaigns with organisations such as Dogs Trust and it is thanks to a generous scheme from Dogs Trust that we are able to offer free microchipping.


If your dog is already microchipped you can register it using our online form (select 'request microchipping', then 'chipping registration form' or 'chipping record update request' from the dropdown menu). Alternatively you can download our dog registration form and post it to us if you prefer.
