Register your dog in 3 steps!

Family expansion, congratulations!

You've probably been looking forward to it for months, but then it's really happened or it's coming soon. You expand your family with a sweet dog. This will be a very fun time, but in the beginning there will also be a lot of responsibilities. We will help you with this!

After purchasing the dog you will receive a chip number. Since 2013 it is mandatory for all dogs to register within 14 days register your dog after purchase at an animal database recognized by the government. The registration allows all animal aid agencies to find out who the dog belongs to and where it belongs if your dog is unfortunately missing has been hit. You decide which data can be found. You can change the data entered at any time. We do this free of charge to ensure that the data remain up to date at all times so that your dog's home address can be found again.

Hond registreren: belangrijk om te weten

As a database, we need a number of data to ensure that your dog registration runs smoothly. You must enter this information yourself during the registration of your dog and you can change it free of charge at any time. This way we ensure that your furry family member can be brought home safely.

What should you consider when registering your dog?

It is important to regularly check whether the data in dog registration are up-to-date. After all, you do want your pet to be able to be brought back home when he is unfortunately missing or has been hit. By ensuring that you keep this information up-to-date, it only becomes easier! 

Are you moving or is your dog temporarily staying somewhere else? Then indicate this in your personal PetBase account! Then you prevent people who found your pet, from standing at the wrong door when they found them. 

To reassure you if your dog has been found, rescue workers would like to contact you. This is easy because your dog is registered. You decide which of your details they get to see. However, it is important to keep these details up-to-date as well!

For registrations made before 9 November 2021, a form number is necessary. Registrations after this date can work with a My PetBase account and no longer need a registration number, then everything works with a transfer code. No changes can be made to the database without a number or code. The chip number and registration/form number can be found on the blue form or in the e-mail provided at registration.

Only the unique combination of these two numbers gives access to changing your data in the database. This prevents fraud and protects your privacy. We can only search by chip or registration/form number and not by name or address. The chip number can be read by your vet or chipper. You can do several other things to find out the registration/form number.
