If your dog is older than six months, it needs a licence and must wear its tag.

Licence fees collected enable Bylaw and Licensing Services to bring your pet back to you quickly, often within a 24-hour period. As a part of the Drive Home Program, any licensed dog found by a bylaw officer will be taken to the owner’s front door. Licence fees also allow Bylaw and Licensing Services to provide emergency medical care for injured cats and dogs that are found.

How to get a dog licence

  • buy your dog a tag from one of the following locations:
  • for dogs who are spayed or neutered the licence fee is $25 (a veterinary report or other proof is required) and when paid before the annual renewal date ($45 after the renewal date)
  • for dogs who are not spayed or neutered, the licence fee is $65 and when paid before the annual renewal date ($85 after that date)
  • if you’re new to town and have a dog licence from any other British Columbia municipality, bring it to Municipal Hall and get a West Vancouver licence for $10

Replacements for lost licence tags are $10.

Once your dog is licensed, we’ll send you a renewal notice each year. Renew online.

  • Why you should have your pet spayed or neutered

A USA Today (May 7, 2013) article cites that pets who live in the states with the highest rates of spaying/neutering also live the longest. According […]
