Lambing time will soon begin again.
Every year in Monaghan, there are many attacks
on sheep by dogs, particularly around lambing time.
These attacks cause great cruelty to sheep and lambs.
These attacks result in serious losses for the farmer.
Any dog, large or small, may become involved in attacking sheep – MAKE SURE YOUR DOG
DOESN’T GET THE CHANCE!
If you own a dog or dogs, you are required to:
- Always keep your dog under control. This means not allowing your dog off your property unaccompanied.
- Have a microchip certificate of registration which proves that your dog is microchipped and registered to you. (Required since 2016)
- Ensure that every dog under your control wears a collar always bearing the name and address of the owner and that the name and address are legible.
- Have a current licence for each dog in your possession or a general dog licence to cover all dogs in your possession. YOU CAN NOW BUY YOUR DOG LICENCE ONLINE AT monaghan.ie
PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOG LICENCED, TAGGED, MICROCHIPPED AND UNDER CONTROL.
