Dog Registration

Registration Changes for 2018

As of 1 July 2018 some further changes to dog registration will include:

  • All dogs must be microchipped by three months of age or within 28 days of taking ownership.
  • All dogs must be desexed by six months of age or within 28 days of taking ownership.

For more information regarding the changes in legislation please refer to the Dog and Cat Management Board website or call (08) 8124 4962.

Dog registration in South Australia has been simplified. Your dog now falls under one of two categories.

Standard Dog: A dog that is both desexed and microchipped.

Non-standard Dog: All other dogs, even if they are exempt from rules around desexing or microchipping, such as dogs belonging to registered breeders.

Councils are required to set two mandatory registration fees for these categories.  Owners of standard dogs are entitled to a 50% discount of their registration fee. Owners of non-standard dogs must pay the full registration fee.


Concession card holders will be eligible for a 50% discount on applicable fees. Concessions apply to:

  • Owners receiving a pension, repatriation, sickness or special benefits

To claim concessions, residents must provide necessary evidence of concession cards and veterinary certificates of desexing or microchipping.
