A smiling ptibull cross sitting in an orchard. Who is such a good doggy!Residents who are yet to register or re-register their dogs with Selwyn District Council, or who need to update their circumstances are being asked to contact the Council as soon as possible.

More than 14,300 dogs have been registered for the 2022/23 year, a six per cent increase on the previous year. Around 2,200 dogs are now overdue for registration, and Council Team Leader Animal Control, Steve Clarke says its important these owners get in touch with Council to avoid an infringement.

"Dog registration time has been incredibly busy. The majority of owners made sure to register on time. We’re now working through the last remaining few, and are urging these owners to register as soon as they can, so that they don’t receive an infringement.”

People whose pets have passed away in the last year, changed ownership or moved to another district or city need to let the Council know of these changes.

Register your dog, email our animal control team or call 0800 SELWYN (735 996).
