This is currently a requirement of law and you can be fined quite heavily for allowing your dog to be in a public place without a tag bearing your name and address. It is also worth noting that a straying dog with such information on its collar is normally returned directly to the owner saving the expense of claiming the dog back from local authority kennels.
