If your dog goes missing, do you have some sort of identification on your pet to ensure its' safe return? The Township discontinued the licensing of dogs in 2014. Dog owners must still tag their dogs however, do not need to buy a Township tag. The owner’s name and phone number needs to be on the dog tag. While Microchips are great, they are only readable by people with chip readers, not your neighbour or someone that finds your dog. Visit By-law #2008-35
