Payment of dog registration is due by 31 July each year. Holders of a responsible dog owner status (RDO) must pay by 30 June to receive the cheapest fee. NOTE: 2020 due dates extended to 31 August and 31 July (RDO)

To avoid additional penalties, dog owners should register their dogs prior to 31 July each year. An infringement notice, which carries a $300 penalty, may be issued where the dog is found to be unregistered. This infringement fee does not include the dog's registration fee. Note: for the 2020 registration period due dates have been extended to 31 July (RDO discounted fees) and 31 August standard fees and non discounted RDO fees.
Dogs may also be seized and impounded, and you would then be liable for release fees as well as the dog registration fee.
