Dog Control Statistics

Below are the links to dog control statistical profiles for the Christchurch City Council.

The data used to develop the above profiles came from three sources:

  • the National Dog Database (NDD) from the Department of Internal Affairs
  • dog-related injury claims and their cost from the Accident Compensation Corporation
  • prosecutions and dog destruction orders under the Dog Control Act 1996 from the Ministry of Justice

The information has been taken as reported from these sources. In reviewing the information shown in these profiles readers should be mindful that the information has:

  • only been presented in a consistent way; and
  • has not been analysed or adjusted to allow comparisons between councils to be made.
