Well i currently live in MI, i am moving to MT this weekend. Does anyone know if i will be able to tranfer their registration or do i have to get new ones?

Also, how does kennel licenses go i was confused by their pricing. I have never had to get one. Their limit is 2 dogs! I have 4. Two spayed and two not.
do I have to pay a registration fee per dog and THEN the yearly fee...

I found their pricing guide but i am still unsure. Can someone help me figure out what i need to pay??

If I am reading their website correctly, you would have to pay the registration fee for all four of your dogs - $15 each for the annual license for your two altered dogs, and $30 each for the annual license for your two unaltered dogs. Then, on top of that, you have to pay the MAP (Multiple Annual Permit), which is $25 for a year, or $50 for the lifetime.

That would mean you'd pay $90 for the dog licenses and $25 for the MAP every year, or $90 for licenses annually and $50 for the MAP as a one-time "lifetime" fee.

If you're planning to breed, you'd have to pay for the Hobby Breeder Permit instead of the MAP, but on top of the licenses, and that would be $300.

I don't think you can transfer their registrations.

I'm glad you don't have to pay that extra fee.


They do need to be registered, even if they are microchipped. The registration the city or county is talking about is not so much about returning your dogs if they get lost, but about generating revenue for the area. Part of the registration fees they get each year pays for their animal control program. It's also a way for them to make sure your dogs have their rabies vaccine, since that is required in order to get your license, and it makes it easier for them to return your dog to you if it is picked up at the side of the road, for example.
