Dog Registration Tags
This page explains what action should be taken when your dog collar tag has become lost.
All registered dogs must wear a current dog registration tag
All dogs registered with Council must wear a colour-coded registration tag issued for the current registration year at all times when the dog is away from its home property.
What you can do if your dog’s collar tag is lost or missing
If your dog’s collar tag has become lost or is missing, you must report it personally at Council’s Customer Services Centre.
A new tag valid for the remainder of the current registration period will be issued to you.
There is a fee for this. Please see the link below for Dog Registration Fees (under Miscellaneous).
Dogs not wearing the correct or proper registration tag may be impounded
The Council's Animal Ranger may seize and impound a dog where it is over the age of 3 months not wearing a collar with a current registration label and is found on any land or premises other than the land or premises of the owner of the dog, or any such dog is found in a public place.
