For dog owners, annual dog registration fees roll around every July, but did you know can reduce your dog registration costs by gaining a Responsible Dog Owner Licence?
Dog owners can save money by ensuring their dog is de-sexed – plus we recognise and reward caring dog owners by charging lower dog registration fees if you hold a Responsible Dog Owner Licence (RDOL).
To qualify for a responsible dog owner licence:
- You will need to pass the written test of your dog ownership knowledge
- You will have been a registered dog owner in New Zealand for 12 months or more before applying
- You need to continue to register your dog on time
- For the previous 12 months, you haven't had any substantiated abatements, seizures or infringements and your dog has not been the subject of a substantiated complaint or impoundment.
