Microchipping Dogs

Hi Guys. Been re-familiarizing things on your website and re-reading information regarding microchipping dogs. You state that only Dangerous and Menacing dogs have to be microchipped. This needs to be updated as it's now ALL dogs except Farm dogs have to be microchipped. Reading what's there can be misleading. Thanks.
