Dogs Online - register, renew, pay or change details

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Dogs Online is the Hamilton City Council e-services tool which you can use for dog registrations/renewals and for updating dog owner and dog details.

All dogs over three months must be registered. To find out more about dog registration, see:

There are requirements for dogs to be microchipped as well as registered. Find out more about microchipping​.

Note that you still need to register certified seeing eye or hearing ear dogs and companion/assistance dogs - however there is no charge to register these dogs.  

Note also that there is a 2.49 per cent fee charged by the bank for making an online payment. This fee is set by the bank, not by Council. 
Please make sure you click the box on the right of your dog (or dogs) that you want to renew, before you click the RENEW & PAY green button. 

You cannot click the green button until you have selected at least one dog to renew.

Making other types of payments too? Use Online services

As mentioned above, you can use our Dogs Online registration and payment system to directly register and renew registration/s for your dog/s online. This is ideal if dog registration payments or changes to details are the only tasks you need to do.

However, you can also access the Dogs Online system through our general 'Online Serv​ices' feature instead, if you need to make other types of online payments to Council as well (such as rates, accounts receivable, LIMs, etc).​ This will enable you to register using the 'RealMe' feature, then access all online services from the one online facility, including the Online Dogs system.​
