Dog Registration Fees & Charges

Dog Registrations Fees and Charges approved for 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.

All fees and charges are inclusive of GST (except as noted *).

Dog Registration Fee (incl GST)
Note: Obedient dog discount applies to dogs with obedience certificates (beyond puppy class) issued by dog obedience clubs.
Note: Licensed owner discount applies to owners who undertake Council training on dog owners' obligations. (One year dog ownership as qualifying period)
Note: For dogs registered for the first time after the commencement of the registration year a charge of one twelfth of the annual unlicenced owner fee per month, or part-month of the remaining year, is payable, provided the dog is no older than three months at time of first registration. Dogs older than three months at the time of first registration will be charged from the date that the dog attained the age of three months.
Note: The minimal charge for licenced dog ownership for seniors (65+) addresses the very low rate of issues from this sector
