Register a new dog

All dogs over the age of three months must be registered. Click here to register a new dog.

Registrations are renewed each year. We send reminder notices to all known dog owners. Registering your dog means we can quickly identify the owner if the dog is lost or runs away.  


Re-register your dog

You can re-register your dog or dogs online. You can also update your dog's details, such as whether it's been sold or is deceased.

All you need is the dog's ID number. You will find this in the left-hand column on your registration notice. 

Register online here and follow the instructions. Please note we can only accept payment by credit card for online registrations.  We have to charge a 2.88% surcharge on all credit card transactions as per usual credit card banking fees.

When your dog is registered you will receive an identification tag which must be attached to your dog’s collar at all times. Dogs without ID tags will be treated as unregistered, until the contrary is proved. Replacement tags are available if the current tag has been lost or stolen.
