Dog registrations are fast approaching

Dog owners are reminded that it’s nearly time to register their dog/s.

Registrations start annually from July 1 through to August 31, when dog owners can take advantage of the discounted price.

All dogs must be registered by three months of age.

If you have an owner file with the Wairoa District Council, you can register your dog/s and pay the registration fee online. If you don’t have an owner file yet, call Council, and a file can be set up in minutes.

Now is also an excellent time to make sure your details are correct and up to date. Perhaps you got another dog during the year or are moving out of the district. Let us know if anything changes so we can update your owner file and ensure you’re paying the correct fees.

If you are still receiving your registrations by mail and would like to change to having your correspondence emailed, please let us know.

If you want more information or require assistance registering your dog, the team is always happy to help. Head to or contact our Compliance Team at the Council office, 06 838 7309 or email
