How to register and microchip your dog, get the responsible owner discount, change ownership details, and what to do if your dog dies.
If you have a new dog or have recently moved to Wellington, you'll need to register it with Wellington City Council.
You must re-register your dog with us by 1 July every year.
Our dog registration fee structure rewards good dog ownership.
We offer a reduced dog registration fee for people who achieve Responsible Dog Owner (RDO) status.
Microchipping makes sure dogs can be quickly identified should they go missing, be stolen or be injured.
Should your dog die, you can receive a refund of fees for the rest of the registration year.
