All dogs over the age of six months are to be registered with Council and it is an offence to keep an unregistered dog.

Registered dogs must wear the current Burnie City Council dog tag firmly attached to the collar.

All registrations fall due on 1 July each year.

Registering your dog assists Council to return your dog in the event of it being impounded, and to notify you in case of an accident.

Written consent must be obtained from the Council to keep more than two domestic or four working dogs.
