Would you like a reduction in dog registration fees?

A Responsible Owner Licence (ROL) rewards those dog owners who keep their dogs under control at all times, and have a good registration history, with a reduced fee (from $85.00 to $52.00, or $37.00 if the dog is de-sexed).

Registering a new dog or a dog new to the Hauraki District

If your dog is new or new to the district and has not been registered with Hauraki District Council, please call in or give us a call first before making payment over the internet, to ensure your payment doesn't go astray.

Renewing your dog registration

If your dog is already on our books there are a number of ways to pay your dog registration fees:

....sign the registration form and return it to the Hauraki District Council.

Before we can issue a tag...

However you choose to pay, and whether your dog has been registered with us before or not, we'll need a copy of your signed registration form, delivered by post, or in person, before we can issue your dog with his or her new tag. 


A puppy or dog registered for the first time must be microchipped within two months of registration. Any dog that has been classified dangerous or menacing on or after 1 December 2003 must also be microchipped. Read more about micropchipping
