Dog Renewal Registration

Once you have received your Application to Renew Registration of Dogs form by post, find out how you can complete and pay for your renewal registration below.

Registration fee payments are due on or before 31 July 2019. Fee payments made after 31 July will incur a 50% late fee penalty payment.

If you need to make some changes to your registration, please contact us on (06) 366 0999.


Have your form ready

Ensure you have your Application to Renew Registration of Dogs form for 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. You can complete renewal registrations online for up to six dogs. If you own more than six dogs, please contact us.

Check the details

If your renewal doesn't match the form you received and you need to make some changes to your registration, please contact us. If your dog ownership has not changed, continue to step 3.

Have your dog tag number(s) ready

Our online form will automatically fill in some of the details for you. You’ll just need to have your dog tag number(s) ready to enter into the form (found on the green tags which have '30-6-19' on them). If you have misplaced your dog tag(s), please contact us before continuing.

Ensure you have a credit/debit card or internet banking details for POLi so you can pay and finalise your renewal registration online.
