Under the Dog Control Act 2000 you are required to apply for a Kennel Licence if you intend to keep:
- More than two dogs over the age of six months; or
- More than four working dogs over the age of six months
You can apply for a Kennel Licence by completing an Application for Kennel Licence(DOCX, 104KB), paying the prescribed fee and submitting a Notice of Intention to Apply for a Kennel Licence(DOC, 30KB) form to a recognised local daily newspaper.
28 days after a Notice of Intention to Apply for a Kennel Licence has been advertised, Council will conduct an inspection of the property and review any objections and complaints received.
Should all areas have been addressed satisfactorily, a Kennel Licence will then be issued.
