Dog registration - Overview

​​​​​​​​It is a legal requirement to register your dog every year.

All dogs must be registered before they turn three months old, and this includes certified seeing eye or hearing ear dogs and companion/assistance dogs, however there is no charge to register these dogs.

Annual dog registration fees are due by 30 June 2020.​

IMPORTANT: During the Covid-19 Alert Level 4 period, dog registrations can still be done but only online. We will be keeping a record of these online registrations and your dog's tag will be posted out after the lockdown has ended (not during). 

If you pay by 30 June, you'll receive a $15 prompt payment discount, however if your dog is not registered by 1 August, a 50 per cent penalty fee applies.

To register your dog or to check your dog's details, please go to our Dogs Online portal using the link below. This is the Council's e-services tool that you can use for dog registrations/renewals and for updating dog owner and dog details.

Please note, that if you register your dog online there is a 2.49% fee charged by the bank for making an online payment. This fee is set by the bank, not by the Council.  

​Alternatively, if you would prefer to pay in person you can do so at the front counter of the Municipal Building, at Animal Education and Control, or via the post. Offline forms are available to download and print through the right side bar.
