Dog microchipping

  • Council offers free microchipping to dogs registered with the Southland District Council.
  • all dogs are required to be microchipped, other than dogs used mainly for herding or driving stock 
  • a microchip carries a number unique to your dog and responds to a scanner so if your dog is lost, stolen or has escaped or strayed, it can easily be identified.
  • microchipping does not replace dog registration. 

Microchipping timetable: 

All dogs eligible to be registered with the Southland District Council can be microchipped for free. All dogs must be registered by three months of age.
