Renew your Dog registration

All dog registrations must be renewed by the 31 October each year, on the year that they expire. 

Please refer to the costs listed below.

Dog Registration Requirements 

All dogs over three months old must be registered and microchipped under the Dog Act 1976.

Sterilisation is not mandatory, however it is recommended. Contact your vet for information about the benefits of sterilising your dog. All dogs must remain registered for the reminder of their life.

All dog registrations must be renewed before the 1 November each year, on the year that they expire.  A Renewal Form will be posted to you before the registration expires.

The City sends texts and/or email reminders as a courtesy at the end of the renewal period, however it is the dogs owner's responsibility to ensure the registration remains up to date at all times.
