Be a su-paw-star, it’s time to register your pooch

Auckland Council is again reminding dog owners to show love for their dog by registering them early and taking advantage of the early-bird fee.

Renew online

You can renew online using your dog reference number. You will receive a reminder email or text from us with your details around mid-June.

New yellow dog tags will be sent out by post within 10 working days of payment.

Manage your dog’s info online with myAUCKLAND

Use our online portal on myAUCKLAND to renew your registrations and update yours or your dog(s) information.

Why register your dog?

Helps us reunite lost dogs with their owners and keep dogs safe.  All dogs need to be registered by three months old and re-registered every year.

After 1 August owners will be required to pay the standard fee; de-sexing also lowers the dog’s annual registration fee.

Dog registration fees help us:

Funding from dog registrations provides vital animal management services, including a 24-hour a day response to dog incidents and attacks, patrols, animal shelters and adoptions, dog-safety education and reuniting lost dogs with their owners.


Dog owners must also microchip their dogs within two months of registration.

“It’s a simple, lifelong way to identify dogs and link them to their owner, and results in the speedier return of lost, stolen, or injured pooches.”

For only $30, Aucklanders can have their dog’s microchipped at one of Auckland Council’s animal shelters; details are then entered into the National Dog Database.
