How To Register Your Dog
Dog Registration Form
Dog registrations only take a few minutes simply fill out a registration form and we will then enter all information into our system and issue you with a registration tag.
In most cases dog registrations are done at the shire office, however they can be arranged via email request, telephone, provided the correct information is given and a cheque or money order is mailed to the shire or a credit card payment is made over the phone. The registration will not proceed until payment of the prescribed fee is received. The shire will then post a registration tag to your nominated address.
Cancelling a Registration
A registration can be cancelled if the Dog has left the district, is deceased or there is a change of ownership. Please contact the shire for more information.
All dog complaints must be received in writing, to make this easier we have created a Complaint Form, emailed complaints are accepted. If you would like to speak to our ranger please contact the shire office on 9823 1506.
