Responsible dog ownership

Restrictions are easing, but you must still remember: Hands. Face. Space. Fresh air. Get the latest information about coronavirus.

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.
