Dog licenses are renewable on November 1st and may be effective for either a one year period or a three year period. A few points to remember. Whenever a dog is in a public place, it must be on a leash and wear a collar with the owners name and address on it, as well as the registration disc. If a previous owner does not advise of a change of ownership, the previous owner continues to be responsible for any offence. The Council can seize a dog found in public places and not under effective control - the dog may be placed in a pound. The owner would then have to pay poundage charges to have the dog released.
