Dog registration provides safety and security for dogs, owners and the community.
Dog registrations must be renewed by 31 August each year.
Please wait to receive a renewal notice from the Council before registering your dog.

Renewing your dog registration using the DACO online system
For dog owners who live in the Norwood Payneham & St Peters Council area, your dog registration renewal notices will be sent out late July and will be due at the end of August.
It is important dog owners wait for their renewal notice before going online in order to avoid duplications in the system.
A step by step flyer will accompany the renewal notice to assist owners through the transition process to the new registration database. Electronic instructions will also be available to users on the DACO website.
