Registration date update
The due date of your dog registration fee has changed. From 2016 onwards, dog registration fees will be due by 30 June.
Here’s a few reasons why we’ve changed the date:
- To align the payment due date with registration dates (all dogs in New Zealand are registered from 1 July – 30 June each year).
- Most other councils in New Zealand have a due date of 30 June, so having the same due date will make it a lot simpler if you and your dog move districts.
- Farmers can register and update their farm dogs details right before the big move on 1 June.
- Some of you told us you forgot the payment due date because it was different to the registration due date.
Dog registration fees vary in cost depending on where in the district you live. Failure to register a pup by three months of age, or any adult dog within 14 days of new ownership, will also incur a penalty fee of 50 percent on top of the relevant fee.
The rural registration fee is $50 and the urban registration fee is $89.
However the urban fee can be reduced by keeping your dog in a property with a dog proof fence (requires inspection) and/or by having your dog desexed (vet certificate required).
