Notes

  1. All years presented are a snapshot as at 31 May. Dog registration years follow a council's financial year 1 July - 30 June.
  2. The information presented is a statistical snapshot of what was currently listed on the National Dog Database (NDD) for the Council as at the above date(s).
  3. While the NDD contains information about owners that may be viewed by councils, such information is not made publicly available. The NDD snapshot statistics, some of which have been presented here, do not include any personal identifying information about individual dog owners.
  4. Dog registration forms allow owners to identify a primary and secondary breed for each dog. For the purpose of these statistics, the term “pure breed” refers only to those dogs that were registered without a secondary breed name listed.
  5. For the purposes of the NDD, “infringements” are restricted to infringements under the Dog Control Act 1996 that have been paid (in full), lodged with and ordered by the court.
  6. In order to maintain a national view of dog, owner, registration and infringement information from territorial authorities, councils provide an electronic batch file to the NDD on a regular basis that includes any insertions, updates or deletions for dog, owner, registration and infringement information that has occurred in the batch period.
  7. The NDD is maintained by Equinox IT on behalf of the Department of Internal Affairs. Neither Equinox nor the Department of Internal Affairs are responsible for the currency or accuracy of this information.
  8. The Department of Internal Affairs disclaims and excludes all liability for any claim, loss, demand or damages of any kind whatsoever (including for negligence) arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this information.
