2019/20 Dog Registration

If you have a dog registered in the Tararua District, next month you’ll receive a notice to renew your registration for the 2019/20 year. 

Keep an eye on your letterbox for your reminder notice

Next month, registered dog owners should receive a posted notice to renew your registration for the 2019/20 year.

Your re-registration needs to be completed and paid in full by 1 August to avoid a late penalty fee.

Keep us in the loop

If you’ve changed your address, or where the dog is kept, or you no longer have the dog, please let us know now so we can make sure your details are correct before we send out the notices. 

Information for new dog owners

All dog owners are legally required to register their dogs with their local councils when the dog reaches 3 months of age. All dogs registered for the first time (except working dogs) must be microchipped.

If you are new to the Tararua District, or have a new or unregistered dog(s), you will need to register your dog(s) with us immediately. Once your dog(s) is registered, you will need to renew your registration each year.

Council is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our Animal Control services. You can get in touch with the Council team by emailing to info@tararuadc.govt.nz or phoning 06 374 4080 or 06 376 0110.
