Dogs in England must be microchipped from 2016

Every dog owner in England will have to microchip their animal by April 2016 under plans aimed at cutting the growing number of strays.

The government says owners who refuse to comply with changes to the Animal Welfare Act face fines of up to £500.

Rice-sized microchips with a code containing the contact details of owners will be fitted to dogs.

A legal loophole could also be closed, meaning owners could face prosecution if their dog attacked on private land.

www.bbc.co.uk...


Now, there are some might say this is a good idea, but hell is paved with good intentions.

In this strange, suffocating nanny world we live in today, dogs are being microchipped (with penalties for those who default).

How long before humans are next?

Yes and it will get going into full steam with "Kids! Get matching engraved chips with your favorite pet and be bonded forever!" style promotions that many parents would find difficult to resist when their kids are begging for it.

This is the beginning . If everything goes fine , humans will be the next one to be microchipped. Guys, forget your freedom in the near future . You will be tracked everytime - anywhere you go, anything you do . Government will be your master and you are its pet

haha just who the frack do they think they are? You have no freedom if you are forced to or penalized for not complying....chipping animals should have never been allowed...its just more conditioning, they would love to have all humans chipped..and they will eventually try

A true shame this world has become....


I hope ppl refuse, and when I say refuse I don't mean pay the bloody fine, i mean refuse chip and fine. Whats the worse they can do, if everyone resist...

oh yeah they could drone strike you

Aren't yous behind the times, this has been in Australia for a long time. All domestic pets must be microchipped by law.

My dog got chipped in the shelter he came from. It's normal here in USA.

This already came into force last year in Northern Ireland and they certainly haven't started chipping us yet

I think we were the first part of the UK to introduce it.

It is a good idea and helps cut down on all the so called 'prestige' dogs running around that honest dog owners fear coming across when out for a walk with theirs.

Yes, I realise England isn't a unique case, but I'm English so I made a thread of it.

Aren't you at all just ever so slightly curious as to what 'they' might be cooking up for us?

OMG That means we're over due to be chipped, according to this thread. I mean.. How do we know we haven't been chipped already? How can we check. I mean, they will make it so that the kids want to be chipped with the pets, in some attractive manner that parents just wont be able to say no to, and all sorts of things. I don't know if I happened to walk past a pet store and .. who knows, did someone run out and convince me to get chipped against my will? Who knows, did they? Maybe they did.. What if they did?

What if I'm chipped right now.. OMG..

Hold me


because after pets, it's only inevitable humans are next. And we've had pet chips for ages.


I'm scared.

Actually, I was in the city a few weeks ago and there was this stray human. The police were very very interested in him for some reason. I know he was a stray as I've seen him wandering the streets alone a lot. So maybe they were chipping him. You never know, I don't know. How can we find out?

I mean he was stray. Had no home. No carer and no owner. And the police were hassling him. Like he was being asked questions and stuff. I wonder if the police have microchipping guns on their belts too. They won't tell us, but if they talk to us, they might sneak it into us while we're not looking.

First they'll do it on the strays thought. Stray humans don't have any way to stop them. And when they say how good it is, that they have found him a home and now he's happy, they'll pretend to do the same thing to us. But we know better, they're really chipping the strays.

We have too many stray humans as it is anyway.

Actually I genuinely think they are trying to solve the problem of stray dogs and more importantly the illegal so called 'prestige dogs' which were a massive problem over here and indeed in England.
If it cuts the risk of your family pet getting mauled by some wee scumbags (who has probably never worked a day in his life) dog then isn't it a good thing?

And, at the end of the day, if they wanted to chip 'us' it would probably be done without us knowing via flu jabs or compulsory immunisation of our children, as already said, how do you know you haven't been already?

i really dont see this as the thin end of the wedge, and this is a positive measure to help deal with irresponsible dogs owners, and sadly there are too many of these.

now, if it lead to us chaps having to be taken down the docs to have our nads ripped off, then it would obvs be a different matter.

ETA - if i'm gonna be chipped, please make it salt n vinegar or cheese and onion, thats fine, but if it's worcester sauce i'll be making molotov cocktails

Well, as someone who doesn't own a pet and has never noticed a problem thereof (apart from pet cr@p on the pavements, and it wont fix that)......it does seem a little extreme.

But I can see that people would think it a good thing and will either welcome it or be indifferent - so there would be no opposition. And, like I said, hell is paved with good intentions.

The world is being transformed by globalisation; everything is boxed, categorised, standardised, controlled.

Everything. Even us.

I don't.

But I suspect they will start off with soft targets, as one could imagine.

Sadly, I suspect you may be right.

I think we are all ready "micro-chipped" in some way. See that fancy smartphone in your pocket? I bet it has all your bank-pins, passwords, every location you've been tagged in on facebook and more. Our smartphones pretty much have every single piece of information anyone could possibly want on us, even down to that instagram photo of your breakfast this morning.

As for the dog thing, its pretty normal in Australia. Our dog escaped a few months ago, and if it wasn't for the microchip we never would've got her back. I think its a great thing.

The difference between a microchip and a smartphone is that a smartphone is optional.

Fortunately, I don't have one.

Neither do I access Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter.

If we're both microchipped though, none of that will matter.

The problem here is that the idea has been hijacked by Mr David "I don't need my medication, I'm fine" Icke.

So people automatically drop you in the whack box, if you bring it up.

But I don't believe in 'reptilians' - I do think we are heading towards a one-world government though, and a planet of people whose behaviours need to be understood, predicted, and controlled.

How will they do it?

Thank you for your contribution.

Although it certainly isn't the animal's fault, perhaps the best response is the refusal to adopt chipped animals. Sure, many will be sent to death at first, but most dog rescue employees are inhospitable to humans and would have nervous breakdowns within weeks.

Really?

We had a few pet dogs when I was growing up, but none of them disappeared for very long.

I seem to remember my mother would butter the paws of the pup, so it could smell its way back home.

Different world now.

Microchip time.

firstly, dont compare humans to dogs. secondly, dont be naive, of course they would love people to be chipped. its like degrading people to the level of pets. State owned pets.

No because I'm more curious what they have planned for us next


My advice though, if they offer you a free one when your pet gets one, don't take it
