It's time to tag your best friend

It's time to tag your best friend

If your dog lives with you in the district and is three months old or more, then you must register it. If your dog currently registered then it's time to update his or her registration for 2014-15.

We'll know which dogs are up-to-date with their registrations as our records are updated when dog registration is paid and by the colour of the tag they're wearing - so make sure you've paid up and your dog is proudly wearing the new tag.

All dogs (some exemptions apply) must also be micro chipped if they were registered after July 2006.

The registration tag belongs to the dog, not the owner. So if you sell or give away your dog, the tag must go with it as proof of registration. Replacement tags are available free of charge.

Any dogs not registered may be seized by dog control officers and owners may receive a $300 fine. Our Council has a zero tolerance for unregistered dogs as the registration fee contributes towards the costs for managing dog control in our district.

Dog registration notices have been sent to owners and are due for payment by 31 July.

To get details on the cost to register your dog and how to pay either online, by post or at our Council offices go to www.tcdc.govt.nz/dogs
