Dog owners reminded they need to licence their pets

Mon 22 Jan 2024

Dog owners in the Vale are being reminded that they have until the end of the month to get their dogs licenced – and an awful lot are leaving it late to do so!

Alfie, an 11-year-old Jack Russell, and his best friend Dillan, a 6-year-old Chihuahua, were recently rehomed by the GSPCA.

So far, fewer than 200 owners have paid the £10 fee to obtain a certificate, meaning that more than 700 people have yet to do so.

The last official date to be properly registered is 31 January and is due in respect of all dogs, with the exemption of assistance dogs. Payments of £10 per animal can be made in person during office hours at the Vale Douzaine [Monday - Friday 10.00 - 13.0] by cash, cheque (made payable to Constables of the Vale) or card; by post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope, or by phone using a debit or credit card (with a small charge to cover postage as we have to send the licence to you).

Every dog owner must have their animal licensed from six months old and failure to do so means the owner can be reported to Guernsey Police and fined.

Because time is now short, the quickest and easiest way is to call the office on 01481 244155 between Monday - Friday 10.00 - 13.00 so payment can be taken over the phone and the licence emailed to you.
