Dog and Kennel Licences
The Township Dog Licence By-law requires every dog owner to register their dog(s) and/or Kennel.
The Township of Puslinch has partnered with DocuPet to provide an enhanced pet licensing experience, offering FREE 24/7 Lost Pet Service and ‘designer’ tags with personalization options to compliment your pet’s personality. This new service will improve the convenience and compliance of pet licencing, result in increased automation, improve customer service and support our local animal shelters. As well, licences will now be sold on a 365 day basis as opposed to the calendar year. Meaning, no matter what time of year you move to our municipality or welcome home a new pet, the tag you purchase will be valid for 365 days. To learn more about DocuPet, watch the video below;
As we work on the launch of this new initiative in March 2021, all 2020 licences will be valid until February 28/2021. Please visit www.docupet.com/puslinch for more information and to sign up!
It is required that anyone, personal or business, who has more than 3 dogs has the proper zoning on their property in order to obtain a kennel licence. You can contact the Township’s By-Law department for more information.
