Dog registration is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. All dogs should be registered with Council to ensure that effective dog control can be carried out. All income generated from registration and expiations is dedicated to animal management and public safety, new initiatives to improve relationships between owners and other residents and recreational opportunities for pets and their owners.
Dog registration is mandatory in South Australia. If you obtain a dog older than three months of age, then you have 14 days in which to register the dog. It doesn't matter at what time of year your first registration is done.
The registered owner of a dog must be over 16 years of age.
