The Township Dog Control By-law requires every dog owner to register their dog(s) and purchase a licence. The licence that all dog owners are required to purchase expires December 31st each year. The licence must be renewed by March 1st or for new dogs, be purchased within 10 days of becoming a new dog owner. Registering your dog(s) not only demonstrates responsible pet ownership, but it also helps with identification and the safe return of your pet if they are missing.
If you harbour or shelter 3 or more dogs for personal or commercial use, you are required to obtain a kennel licence.
Township of Puslinch dog tags are available at the Township Office.
Note: It is required that anyone, personal or business, who has more than 3 dogs has the proper zoning on their property in order to obtain a kennel licence. You can contact the Township's Building and Planning department for more information.
Whether applying for a licence online or in person, you will be required to provide the following information:
You can fill out the Dog Licence Application to purchase your dog tag(s).
