Dog Licences

Licensing your dog

All dogs over the age of eight weeks must wear licence tags at all times. An annual licence for a neutered or spayed dog is $25 before January 31 and $31.25 after January 31.

New for 2017 - permanent dog tags. The tag you receive for 2017 will be your dog's permanent tag. An annual licence renewal fee is still required each year but you will no longer receive a new tag as you have in the past.

Unaltered dogs are $62.50 before January 31 and $75 after January 31. Lost tags can be replaced at a cost of $6.25
