Microchip your pet
Microchipping is compulsory for all dog owners in the United Kingdom, dogs arriving into Cyprus must also be microchipped.
Having your dog microchipped is one of the best ways to increase your pet's chances of getting home. Unlike dog tags and collars, which can fall off or be removed, microchipping is a more permanent form of identifying your dog. But don't forget the law says all dogs must wear a collar and tag, with their owners name, address and telephone number on it.

Be Safe!! Buckle Up!!
Be Safe! Buckle Up!!
It’s no secret that many people with dogs love cruising with the windows down, allowing their unbuckled companions to stick their faces blissfully out into the wind. But this video shows just how dangerous this sort of joyride can be.
According to one study, 60 percent of dog guardians have been distracted by their canine companions while driving and only 17 percent secure them with some sort of restraint system.
We know that many pups love an open window, but it shouldn’t be open so far that they could fall or jump out. Animals riding in cars should also be properly restrained. Countless unrestrained dogs and cats have escaped from vehicles at tollbooths and rest stops. And remember not to transport companion animals in the bed of a pickup truck—abrupt acceleration or stops, sharp turns, and collisions pose a great risk to them.
Drivers with accompanying dogs should also consider their own safety in the case of an accident. If a crash occurs at just 35 mph, a 60-pound dog can exert 2,700 pounds of force on impact.
Wearing a seat belt is a great idea for everyone in the car. Dogs are safest restrained with a canine “seat belt,” available from many animal companion supply stores and online retailers.
