Council says. Auckland Council’s regulatory committee deputy chair councillor WayneWalker said dog owners were legally required to register their dog with their local council and renew the registration each year by August 1. Almost 70,000 dogs have been registered however, about 30,000 known dogs are yet to be registered. Each year Auckland Council issues about 2000 infringement fines for dog owners having an unregistered dog.
