Council looking to REWARD responsible dog owners

Dog 1

If you are a responsible dog owner then Council wants to reward YOU!

As a way to encourage our community to take good care of their dogs and be responsible owners, Council has created a Selected Dog Owner Policy.

This policy will reward RESPONSIBLE dog owners, who are complying with Council’s Dog Control Policy and Dog Control Bylaw, with a discounted registration fee of 12.5% ON TOP of the early payment discount set in Council’s fees and charges.

To become a “Selected Owner”, Council has several requirements that you must meet.

These include: your dog being microchipped, ensuring your dog registration is always paid before July 31 of each year, history proving good dog ownership, no record of impounding or infringements and if you have more than two dogs on the property you must have a permit.

Owners with dogs registered as Class S (standard) or Class M (menacing) can apply for this additional discount if they meet the requirements.

There is no cost to apply for this reward, but applications need to be received by May 1 of this year.

To find the application form, you can visit our website and type Selected Owner Policy in the search bar.

The policy applies to the owner and only to the property that Council has inspected.

Please contact Council’s Bylaw Enforcement Team leader Paul Van Dorrestein for more information on 06 838 7309 or visit our website.
