Central Otago District Council is required by law to keep a register of all dogs in the district. As a dog owner, you are required to ensure your dog is registered by the time it is three months old.
Once your dog is registered, you are also required to re-register each year (each July). A notice and invoice will be sent to the registered owner with the contact details you provide prior to the registration period as a reminder that the next annual registration is due.

Change of address or ownership
If you change address you need to notify Council to enable us to reunite you and your loved one (if they were to take themselves for a walk), but also to avoid any fines for not updating your details. If you buy or sell a dog you must also notify Council within 14 days. This can be via the online means or by phone.
