Working Dog

Did you know if your dog meets the criteria for working dogs under the Companion Animals Act and Regulations, you can register them for free? 

The Companion Animals Act 1998 defines a working dog as a dog used primarily for the purpose of droving, tending, working or protecting stock and includes a dog being trained as a working dog. This does not specify a working dog to be a particular breed. 

 

To find out if your working dog is eligible for free registration, simply complete and return this Working Dog Assessment Form
