DOG REGISTRATION

Within the Shire of Denmark all dogs are required to be registered and microchipped.

Why do I need to register my dog?

Not only is it law under the Dog Act 1976 for all dogs over three months to be registered, it is also important for both the general community and their dogs that Council has a record of dogs and their owners. Registration allows Council to provide for better facilities and conditions for responsible dog owners.

The benefits of registration are:

  • Positive identification of your dog
  • Reuniting lost or injured dogs with their owners
  • Investigation and resolution of dog problems

The period of registration (or dog year) runs from 1 November to 31 October, regardless of when the dog is actually registered. Current registrations can be transferred between local councils within Western Australia.

Only two dogs are permitted to be kept at any one residence. You may keep puppies until they reach the age of three months. Should you wish to keep more than two dogs then you must make an application to Council.
