You've been telling us what you think about the compulsory microchipping of dogs in England on our Facebook page.
Michelle Garner It's a good idea, but we all know that the "good" owners have this done anyway, and the "bad" owners still won't bother so can only think if this becomes legislation how on earth is it going to be policed?
Nicky Nobbs Can't see any reason not to have your dog chipped! It's cheap enough and if anyone says they can't afford it then they can't afford to have a dog.
Charlotte Fernandes Yes they should! Too many dogs end up abandoned in rescue centres, so chipping them will call into question the owners who abandon them.
