Dog Registration

Dogs and cats are great companion animals, but owning one means you have particular responsibilities, both to your pet and also to the general public.

To register a dog with Latrobe Council please print off and complete Application for New Dog Registration, and make your payment at Latrobe Council, 170 Gilbert Street, Latrobe.  Please re-new registration during July each year to receive a discount and avoid being fined for unregistered animals.

Have any of your dog registration details changed?

Please complete the form below and return it to Council if any of the following has occurred:

  • Your dog is or will be living at a different address (for 60 days or longer)
  • Your dog has moved to a different municipal area
  • You have transferred ownership of your dog to someone else or have become the new owner
  • Your dog has died

Change Dog Registration Details

Please complete a Change of Postal Address form if you just wish to advise of a change in mailing address.

Dog Registration Payments

Payments for Dog Registrations may be made online or at the Latrobe Council Office.  All dogs over the age of 6 months, unless exempt, must be microchipped prior to being registered with the Council.
