Would you like a reduction in dog registration fees?

Have you thought about applying for Responsible Owner Licence (ROL)?

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 $105.00 to $60.00, or $45.00 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 history 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 are available on our website, or at our Council offices at William Street, Paeroa; Rosemont Road, Waihi or Orchard West Road, Ngatea, or call us on 07 862 8609 or 0800 734 834 (free call within District).

ROL applications are accepted from 1 June to 15 July 2021. Failure to reregister your dog(s) by 31 July annually will mean a loss of licence.
