Why should you register your dog? 

Dog registration

All dogs aged 12 weeks and over must be registered with Council, as a requirement of the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008.

By registering your dog, Council is able to reunite you and your pet if it is impounded or to notify you in case of an accident.

You must bring a copy of your pet's microchip and desex certification originals for registration.

Registration fees enable the Council to deliver a wide range of animal management services including the Animal Management Centre, dog patrols and community information about responsible pet ownership.

Registration and other Forms

Download the Registration of Dog/Adoption Agreement (PDF, 90KB) and take this to your local Council office with a copy of your pet's microchip and desex certification originals.

Download an Update of Animal Registration Details Form (PDF, 553KB) if any details have changed, and submit it to your local Council office. Have your pet registration details changed?
