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.
Should your dog die, you can receive a refund of fees for the rest of the registration year.
