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.
