Dog Registrations

New Dog Regos

From 1 July 2018 Dogs and Cats Online will replace 68 individual Council dog registers and serve a single online database that is accessible 24/7 for registration, microchipping and breeder information.

All registered dogs will be transferred from our Council system to Dogs and Cats Online. For dog registration renewal you will receive a notice in the post in July with a unique code on it, which needs to be entered into Dogs and Cats Online, along with the owners surname to proceed to create an owner profile. Once you check your details are correct and enter in any concession information the dog registration fee will be automatically calculated. You may then proceed to pay your dog registration. Step by step instruction will be provided with your renewal notice to assist you through the transition to the new system.

Please note: You will not be able to renew your dog registration until you have received your renewal notice with your unique code. (If you have not received your registration renewal notice by September please contact Council on 8688 2101.

Compliance Officer, Mr Trevor Franklin, Telephone 8688 2101 or Mobile 0429 882 070
