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 can re-register and pay for one or multiple dogs online. Dogs must be re-registered with us by 1 July every year.
We’re saying goodbye to plastic dog tags and hello to One Tag.
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.
