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 note that as of 2019, all dog tags are permanent and are to be kept on your dog's collar at all times.
