Registering Your Dog


Dogs are required to be registered with Council once they are six (6) months old.

The easiest way to register your dog is in person at Council's office, located at 137 Rooke Street, Devonport.  You will need to provide details of the animal's micro-chip number and de-sexing certificate (if applicable).

Dogs can either be registered annually or for life - no matter how long he/she lives.  If you choose to register your dog annually we will send you a renewal notice each year.  Registration fees are payable by 31st July every year, with discounts available on most fees if paid by this date.
