Default Do you "license" your dogs?

Do you "license" your dogs? If so how much does it cost? Is it more for intact dogs? What are your thoughts on dog licensing or reasoning behind doing it or not doing it (if it's required)?

Yes. Jax has a lifetime license that is available to any dog with a microchip. Sierra and Banshee get theirs yearly...not always on time but eventually. They will post in the newspaper when the HO is coming around to check licenses and rabies

Oops.

I knew there was something I was forgetting.

And yes, it is more for intact dogs. I think the regular fee is $25 and $50 for non neutered. The ticket if you get asked to show it though and you don't have it, is big.

Nope. A good side of living in the country.

I just licensed my dogs with the county today. It is $12 for SN, $26 for intact, prices double March 1 - Nov. 30. Licensing is required for dogs 4 months and older and is done annually. It's basically the county's proof of rabies (you must have a valid 1-3 year rabies cert). I haven't kept up with this and didn't want my GSDs targeted with BSL but BSL doesn't seem to be a problem here and two of my dogs got out on Sunday. They only went two houses over but better safe than sorry. All my dogs are already chipped, tagged, some have tattoos but I figured now that we live in an urban area I'd rather not be fined for not having the right tag. I've also got a fence contractor coming out today to fix the problem, so they can't get out again.

definately a requirement here, you can get a fine if not registered and worse if dog is not up to date on rabies.

n/s dogs 8.00 each
intact dogs 16.00 each

more than 8 dogs you can get a kennel license for like 35.00

Our city used to require a license for every dog but they changed that two months ago. However, we are still required to license because we are over the dog limit of 2. So we have to get special permission to have the additional one which has to be renewed every year. We are paying $15 a yr for renewal Fee.

Here an unsexed dog license is $7 for a year or $21 for 3 years.
Male/female or $25 for a year or $60 for 3 years.
Late fees are $15.
I've always bought licenses for my dogs.

Yup. it's required yearly. Even if it weren't required here, I would have to if I wanted to take him to SCA events. There, it IS required (for safety)
