    Where I live it is required but I have never regsitered my dogs. I have lived in my house for 17 years and not once have I registered any dog I owned. However, if they decided to do a random check I could get fined. The ordinance officer came to my house about 8 years ago because of an incident with my boxer but never asked if they were registered with the city just checked to make sure she had her rabies vaccine. I do know that some cities do go house to house and check to see how many pets you have and if they are registered. If they are not registered, they give you so many days to get them registered before they fine you.

    I was just wondering about this the other day when searching online for dog parks in our area. The one I took June to mentioned having to have your dog registered in the city. She's our first dog and I don't even know where to go to register her? Is it really a big deal if I don't? Nobody at the dog park asked about it, but I will if I need to.

    To be honest, I don't think it's a big deal not to register. But with my luck, if we didn't, I'd be one of those rare people that would get stopped, and fined.

    Well the general consensus seems to be that not many people do it. I have never heard of house to house checks by me and I know the residents would be quite irate to know tax dollars weregoing towards that. I'm sure not many people have their pets registered.

    I have never heard of them going door to door here in Arkansas. I don't think they care as long as you are treating them right and have their rabies vaccine up to date.

    Haha, I always kept quiet about Winslow not being registered but it seems I'm in the majority! :p

    I plan on it... one day... when I'm not so lazy. I really think it's there just to keep dogs' rabies vaccs in check.

    My city says it is mandatory. You have to renew it every January and if you miss the deadline the fine doubles the fee. I have heard of a few people getting fined because their dog wasn't registered but I am not sure how they knew their dog wasn't registered. We registered Gunny just because we felt like we had to. Our city is pretty strict.

    One good reason to get a license is that is their proof of rabies vaccine in the event if a biting accident. You never know when it could happen and without that license most towns/counties/cities have the right to quarantine your furbaby god knows where for at least ten days. Some go as far as saying they can be euthanized for testing without that tag because they don't care about the animals, it is about money and liabilities. Pay the 12$ Just in case especially with a puppy! You don't want that headache or heartache ever!!
    Also with a tag if they ever get loose a shelter knows that they belong to someone and have their shots. All worth 12$ just to cover what ifs!

    See what I do not understand is this, Brutus of course had his rabbies vac and the vet sends that info somewhere so they have that info on file so why pay to have him registered? When I bring Brutus to the groomer they have his complete vac history and rabbies certificate on file and they never asked for a registration number. Hmm..just another way for them to get our money i'm sure.

    It is jst another way of getting money from you without saying it is a tax. We have them for our guys, but only after we did the microchip -- then you can get the life-time license and only pay like 30 bucks

    you can likely go to City Hall to get the dog license or to the local humane society in your city if they give them out there.
