Dog Registrations

Dog Registrations

All dogs over three months must be microchipped and registered with the Shire.

How do I register my dog?

You will need to complete and sign a registration form.  A person under the age of 18 may not register a dog.  Once you have completed the form, return it to the Shire office with payment and we will issue a registration certificate and tag.

Registrations usually expire annually on 31 October. Registrations can be renewed for one year, three years or lifetime.
