Microchip identification a must in Queensland

Trainers will be required to use microchip identification of greyhounds in Queensland from December 1.

All dogs that are to be named, transferred, registered, nominated or raced in Queensland will be microchip scanned.

Stewards will inform trainers on the requirements.

Racing Queensland Limited will make available microchip services at major centres in December and if needed in January for a fee of $20.

If you wish to attend a microchip session you must bring a naming application or racing certificate for each greyhound.

Once these opportunities are concluded non-microchipped dogs will not be able to be named, transferred, registered or nominated.
