Let us know if you have a dog

If you're a council tenant or leaseholder, you need to tell us if you want to keep a dog, or extra dogs, in your council home.

You must not bring a dog to live in the property before we give you written permission, as this is a breach of your tenancy conditions.

You don't need to complete this form for someone who is visiting you with their dog.

It's a legal requirement for all dogs to be micro-chipped and you'll need to give us the microchip number to complete registration.

Register your dog

We'll usually give you permission for one dog, especially if your property has a garden. If you want to have more than one dog we'll need to take into account the size of the property and how many dogs you want.

We register dogs in council properties to encourage responsible dog ownership and to help if a dog is causing a nuisance.
