About the Dog Tags

Registering your dog(s) helps with the identification and safe return of your pet, and demonstrates caring and responsible pet ownership.

In order to apply for an on-line dog tag you must provide a valid e-mail address and phone number. We will only use your email address to send information specific to the dog licence service you have requested including a receipt for your payment. Please read our
