If you want to register a DOG (especially a pup) then you should consult your vet because there are new regulations that involve some paperwork. The information will get to Fido through your vet.
Fido can only issue Certificates to new dog owners who have followed the procedures with the help of their vets. Fido cannot issue legal Certificates of Registration to dog owners who self-register, though the data will be maintained for the purpose of reunification. Irish law will, however, require all dog owners to get the legal Certificates.
New Customer (Owner Registration)
Please ensure you have read the terms and conditions of the Fido service.
First step - registering yourself
On this page, you are registering yourself as the owner of a microchipped pet (NOT A DOG).
When this is complete, you can then register your pet. The account is free, but to register a pet, you must either pay a registration fee or have a 6 Character registration code entitling you to a free pet registration. The 6 Character code should not be used to register pups, and you are advised to contact your vet if you are planning to register a dog because there are new codes and new forms involved.
A code entitling you to a free registration can be obtained from:
- the implanting vet as proof of your payment for the Fido reunification service.
- the existing Fido owner of the pet, as part of ownership transfer. (Note: not legal for dogs)
Without a registration code you will be required to pay a small fee when registering your pet.
Registered owners can do any of the following:
- Add (register) a new pet.
- Change your personal details.
- Change the reunification details of any of your registered pets.
- Transfer the ownership of one of your pets to another Fido user.
- Purchase discount collar tags for registered pets.
The above services continue to be available with respect to dogs, but must now be conducted in accordance with the new Irish regulations, which generally involves some paperwork and small administration fees. Certain online services (such as third-party contact information and holiday arrangements) continue to be free to Fido customers.
If a registered pet is found, the implanted microchip will help to identify the registered pet owner. We need accurate contact details to ensure you can be contacted if your pet is found.
Note: Fido will use your email address as your unique 'user name'.
Before proceeding, please complete the following simple puzzle so Fido knows you are a real person:
