Have you thought about obtaining a RESPONSIBLE OWNER LICENCE (R.O.L)?

Council’s Responsible Owner Licensing scheme rewards those dog owners who keep their dogs under control at all times, and have a good registration history, with a reduced fee (from $82.00
to $52.00, or $37.00 if the dog is de-sexed).

The major criteria to obtain a Responsible Owner Licence are:

  • Complete the prescribed application form and pay the nonrefundable application fee of $32.00.
  • Have a good record of registration payment history/no complaints, impounding, infringement notices, etc in the preceding 12 months.
  • Dog control staff of the Hauraki District Council will inspect your section for a securely fenced property (certain criteria applies).
  • Pass a simple written examination on dog care and owner legal obligations.

An information pack and application form are available by telephoning 0800 734 834 (free call within the District) or 07 862 8609, or they can be downloaded from Council’s website Copies can be collected from one of our service centres at William Street, Paeroa; Rosemont Road, Waihi; Orchard West Road, Ngatea.

Note: Failure to register your dog by 31 July of any year will disqualify your R.O.L.
