Each year you are obliged to complete the licence application form as you are declaring that you continue to accept the important responsibilities of being a dog owner, such as but not limited to: proper control near livestock, on the lead beach walking restrictions and removal of dog waste.
The form also helps us ensure your data is correct, up to date and assists our audit process.
