All puppies must be registered by the time they are three months old. If registration fees are not paid on time, you risk an infringement of $300.
If you've taken ownership of an adult dog that hasn't been registered before, you'll need to register it with us within 14 days.
If you've moved to Whangārei and your dog is registered with another council, you will need to register it with us to receive a new dog tag, but there will be no fee for this.
Ensure you have the relevant documents and certificates such as proof of microchipping and desexing (if applicable).
Fill in the online registration form and upload any proof documentation required. You can register up to five (5) dogs.
