Preferred Dog Status Reminder

03 April 2023

If you missed the news last month, this is a friendly re­minder that Council is encouraging and recognising good dog behaviour by offering a reduced registration fee for individual dogs that achieve preferred dog status.

Applications for preferred dog status are due by the end of April. If your dog is granted preferred status, you will be eligible for the reduced fee for the following registra­tion year.

Council is happy to answer any questions you may have regard­ing Animal Control. You can get in touch with the Council team by calling 06 374 4080 or 06 376 0110. Or emailing
