Dog Tag Enforcement
The Municipality of Leamington has a by-law for the registration and regulation of dogs.
The Municipality's Animal Control By-law requires that every owner of a dog register and licence their dog each year.
This simple process will help reunite you with your pet if it is lost. Please keep the tag on your dog's collar at all times.
Dog tags may be purchased by visiting the Municipal office and completing the form
2017 Dog Tag Fees:
- $20.00 on or before March 31st
- $40.00 on or after April 1st
Please note no person shall keep more than two (2) dogs in a dwelling unit or any premises unless the property is licensed as an approved dog kennel.
There is a fine of up to $500.00 for not registering your dog.
Representatives of the Municipality of Leamington will attend door to door selling dog tags commencing April of 2017 at a cost of $40.00 per dog which includes the late fee. Each Municipal Representative will be identified with a Municipality of Leamington identification name tag.
