How to Apply for Electronic Dog License in Chengdu

  In July 2010, in order to strengthen dog-raising management and maintain the city appearances and environment and social public order, Chengdu plans to launch the dog license system.

Only healthy dogs can be vaccinated, and puppies that have never received vaccination are ready for the first injection when they are 6-8 weeks old.
