Animal Control

Municipal Law Enforcement Services includes canine animal control. We help to ensure that owners take responsibility for their dogs' actions so they can be a positive addition to our neighborhoods.

Licensing of Dogs in The Blue Mountains:

On becoming a dog owner, or on or before March 15th every year, each dog must be registered with the Animal Control Officer.  Owners must pay the fee and procure a metal dog tag showing the serial number and year of issue.

Registration Requires:

  • Completed Application
  • Certificate of Rabies Vaccination showing vaccination within 12 months prior to the date of application
  • Proof that the dog has been neutered or spayed. Otherwise non-neutered or non-spayed dog licence fees apply
  • Applicable Fee

All dog tag records are retained by the Town’s Animal Control Officer.

All dog licences expire on the 31st day of March in the year after issue.

Completed applications can be submitted by email to By-law Enforcement.


All fees listed below include HST

First non-neutered/non-spayed dog $25.00
Second and each additional non-neutered/non-spayed dog $30.00
First neutered/spayed dog $20.00
Second and each additional neutered/spayed dog $25.00

All dogs must be leashed when not on their owner’s property. The only exception is Moreau Dog Park at 76 Victoria Street South – Our enclosed dog park includes a staging area and a 150' wide by 180' long open green space for dogs and their owners to run and play.

Anyone who wishes to operate a dog kennel must obtain an approved Dog Kennel Licence.
