Register dog ownership

Service Description

As the owner of a dog, you are obliged to notify the municipality, administrative community or fulfilling municipality in which you reside of the keeping of your dog. The notification must be made immediately after the dog has been kept.

Please note that you must have the dog permanently and unmistakably marked with a forgery-proof electronically readable transponder according to the ISO standard (microchip) by a veterinarian at your own expense. The chipping must have taken place within three months from the beginning of the keeping. For puppies, this period begins at the earliest when the dog reaches the age of three months.

In addition, you are required to take out liability insurance to cover personal injury and property damage caused by the animal, with a minimum sum insured of 500,000 euros for personal injury and 250,000 euros for other damage.
