At 3 months of age dogs are required to be registered.

Those dogs who were registered in 2016/17 will receive a renewal notice for 2017/18 including the new disc/tag (this year the colour is yellow). However, your dog will not be registered until payment is received. 


For any new dog registration, a registration form can either be sent to your address, downloaded below, or collected from City of Burnside Civic Centre.
