The Municipality requires that your dog is licensed every year. Dogs are to be registered on or before April 1st. Owners are required to apply for a license within 10 days of obtaining a dog. Having a tag on your dog's collar will enable the By-law Enforcement Officer to quickly return your dog to you if he or she is found somewhere outside of your property.
