Change your dog's ownership details

Use this form to change the ownership of a registered dog. The new or previous owner can complete this form, however we recommend the new owner do this as it will be faster.

Both parties have to agree to the transfer before ownership can be confirmed. We will email the new and previous customer with instructions on this.

Any outstanding dog registration fees for the current registration year must be paid.

The previous owner can pay this by completing the renew your dog registration form. It will be the new owners responsibility once ownership has been transferred.
