Would you like a reduction in dog registration fees?

Have you thought about obtaining a Responsible Owner Licence (ROL)

The Responsible Owner Licensing scheme rewards those dog owners who keep their dogs under control at all times and have a good registration history.

Successful applicants will qualify for a reduced registration fee (from $100.00 to $57.00, or $42.00 if the dog is de-sexed).

The criteria to obtain a Responsible Owner Licence are:

  • Complete the prescribed ROL application form and pay the non-refundable application fee of $32.00.
  • Have a good record of registration payment and no complaints, impounding, infringement notices, etc in the preceding 12 months.
  • Council’s dog control staff will inspect your property to ensure the fencing meets our criteria.
  • Pass a simple written examination on dog care and owner legal obligations.

The information pack and application form is available on our website www.hauraki-dc.govt.nz or at our Council offices at William Street, Paeroa; Rosemont Road, Waihi or Orchard West Road, Ngatea, or call us on 0800 734 834 (free call
within District) or 07 862 8609.

Responsible Owner Licences (ROL) applications are accepted from 1 June to 15 July 2020. Failure to re-register your dog(s) by 31 July annually will mean a loss of licence.
