Dog registration renewals to be sent this week

Registration renewals to be sent to city’s dog owners this week

Packs will be sent out this week asking Auckland city dog owners to renew their dog’s registration. The packs contain a user-friendly application form, information about Auckland City’s dog bylaws and a flyer explaining how to keep children safe around dogs.

Dog owners are required under the Dog Control Act 1996 to register dogs over the age of three months. This enables Auckland City to ensure safety in the community and to return a dog to its owner if it is found wandering.

All dogs must be registered by 1 August. All registration forms received by this date will go into the draw to receive one of five $200 Westfield shopping vouchers. Owners who register their dogs after this date will be charged a late fee. If the dog remains unregistered, owners will be liable for a $300 fine.

To renew a dog’s registration, owners should fill in both sides of the ‘Application to register your dog’ form and return to Auckland City using the envelope provided. Once the application has been processed (this will take approximately two weeks), the council will send a receipt and the dog’s new registration tag to the dog’s owner.

Up to three dogs can be registered on one application form. If owners have four dogs or more, they will be sent two or more registration packs. A permit is required to keep more than one dog on the Auckland isthmus. On Waiheke and Great Barrier islands, owners need a permit for more than two dogs.

Owners can become eligible for reduced registration fees if they:
de-sex their dog
have completed the relevant training and hold a dog owner license.

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

The dog registration fees have not changed since last year. The fees 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.

As well as the usual payment methods, owners can now pay their dog registration online by visiting www.aucklandcity.govt.nz and clicking on the “pay this year’s dog rego online” button.

To find how much their dog’s registration will cost, owners can use the registration calculator on the website or phone Auckland City on (09) 379 2020.

Gordon Campbell: On The Double Standard That’s Bound To Dominate The Election

Are National really better political managers than Labour, particularly when it comes to running the economy? For many voters – and the business community in particular - their belief in National’s inherent competence is a simple act of faith. (For them, centre- left governments are just a temporary aberration by misguided voters, to be tolerated only until business-as-usual can be resumed.) Routinely for instance, the business confidence surveys continue to perpetuate the myth that National are the only prudent stewards of the economy. By and large, the business confidence surveys have been an outlet for the sustained temper tantrum felt by business leaders at the election result of 2017, rather than providing a rational assessment of the actual economic conditions.
