Welcome to the

District Council of Cleve



Dog Registration

Councils are required by 'the Act' to keep a register of dogs in the local area. To ensure the register is kept up to date, dog registrations are renewed every financial year.

All dogs aged 3 months or over, living on the property longer than 14 days must be registered with Council. Persons registering a dog must be 16 years of age or older.

To register a dog you will need to:

  • Complete anĀ application form
  • Pay a registration fee (pensioner concessions and other rebates are available)

Once the dog has been registered you will be issued with:

  • A certificate of registration
  • A registration disc (this must be worn by the dog at all times)

Failure to register a dog is an offence under 'the Act' and the owner or person responsible for the dog may be fined.

Following the registration of a dog you are required to notify Council as soon as possible if the following events occur:

  • The dog is moved to another premises
  • The dog dies or is missing for more than 72 hours
  • Ownership of the dog is transferred to another person

For Dog Registration forms, please visit ourĀ forms page and for registration fees please see our Fees & Charges.
