Register your dog now and save

Over 7000 Auckland dogs have been registered with Auckland City Council so far, meaning their owners have avoided paying late fees by registering before the 1 August due date.

“This is an encouraging figure and a better rate than expected,” says Geoff Atherfold, Auckland City’s team leader of regulatory services.

By registering before 1 August they have also gone into the draw to win one of five $200 Westfield vouchers and avoid the $300 infringement fee for failing to register their dog.

The owners of previously registered dogs should have received a registration pack in the mail but if they have not, and there are no changes to the dog’s details or the owner’s details, they can pay online through Auckland City’s website.

Online registration makes dog registration accessible anytime from anywhere and frees up the time of dog owners so they can spend more time doing what dog owners do - walking their dogs.

Registration forms can also be downloaded from the Auckland City website or requested by ringing Auckland City on (09) 379 2020.

A reduced fee is offered to owners who have obtained a dog owner licence and also for dogs that have been neutered.

Dog owners are required to register all dogs over the age of three months. Registration enables Auckland City to monitor safety in the community and to return lost dogs to their owners.

Visit www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dogs for more information about de-sexing dogs and obtaining a dog owner licence.

The dog registration fees, unchanged from last year, are as follows:

Standard fee Late fee

Class A Dog neutered. Owner holds a dog owner licence $38 $57
Class B Dog neutered. No dog owner licence $62 $93
Class C Dog not neutered. Owner holds a dog owner licence $81 $121.50
Class D Dog not neutered. No dog owner licence $106 $159
Class E Special-purpose dog NIL NIL
Class F Working dog $38 $57
Class G Dangerous dog Under section 32(1)(e) of the Dog Control Act 1996, owners of dangerous dogs must pay 150 per cent of the standard dog owner registration fee.

To pay on line visit www.aucklandcity.govt.nz and click on “pay this year’s dog registration online” under Online services.

The costs of dog registration can be found using the registration calculator on the website or phone Auckland City on (09) 379 2020.
