Registering your dog for the first time
All dogs must be registered from 3 months of age or as soon as they come into your possession.
Visit Council's Service Centre on Miranda Street to register your dog(s) and make payment.
Registrations paid prior to 1 August are at a discounted rate. Full fees apply from 1 August.
Check out Dog Ownership Fees & Charges for the 2022/23 year.
If your dog registration is not paid, an infringement notice may be served, or the dog may be seized by an Animal Control Officer.
Renewing your dog's registration
Registration applications are sent out in June each year, or can be picked up from Council.
Dog owners must register their dogs by June 30 of each year, before their current registration has expired.
You can re-register your dog(s) and make payment online here or by visiting Council's Service Centre on Miranda Street.
Changes to dog registration
If your dog has passed away, you may be eligible for a part-refund of registration. Refunds are only applicable from the month of application.
If your dog is re-homed, or you change address, you must let us know within 14 days.
