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.

Due to COVID-19, annual dog registration fees this year are due by 30 September 2020. Invoices for these will be emailed/posted out in mid to late June 2020.

If you pay by 31 August 2020, you'll receive a $15 prompt payment discount. Standard fee applies from 1 September 2020 and if your dog is not registered by 1 October 2020, a 50 per cent late 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: 

​​We are experiencing an intermitted technical issue with our online system. This issue affects some users only, most online registrations go through with no issues. Our team is working to resolve this as soon as possible, so if you experience a problem please be patient with us.

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.
