Dog Registration Due

Reregistration forms have been mailed or emailed to owners. You can also reregister your dog using our online form from 1 July 2022.

Pursuant to The Dog Control Act 1996 Notice is hereby given dog registration fees for the 2022/2023 dog registration year, due on or before 1st August 2022 are:

  • Urban Zone - full year $74.00
  • Rural Zone - full year  $58.50

Registration fees for dogs less than 3 months old on or after 2nd August, or dogs newly imported into New Zealand will be reduced on a pro-rata basis for the remainder of the registration year.

NB Pro-rata registration fees will not otherwise be applied. Any person acquiring an unregistered dog should discuss late registration costs with the previous owner.

Late registration will attract a 50% Late Registration Payment Penalty.

Dog registration is transferable and extends throughout New Zealand.

Failure to register a dog is an offence under which the unregistered dog may be seized and impounded, and for which the owner may receive an infringement notice or be prosecuted.
