Things to remember:

  • All dogs must be registered by three months of age.
  • All pet dogs need to be microchipped within two months of registration, and written confirmation supplied to your local Council for inclusion on the National Dog Database – this service is included within the registration fee, so there is no extra charge by Council.
  • Your local Council may offer a subsidy towards the neutering cost for registered dogs.
  • Some Councils offer a part payment scheme for the annual registration fees, to make payment easier.
  • Annual registration fees may be reduced: with good dog ownership, by becoming a licensed dog owner. Check with your local Council.
  • Your local Animal Control Officers may be able to assist with educational presentations for interested community groups and schools.
