NYS Dog Licensing


ALL dogs four months of age or older MUST be licensed in the municipality in which they are harbored.  Every dog owned or harbored in New York State for longer than 30 days must be licensed.


Dog Licenses are renewed on a yearly basis. Each dog is assigned a permanent official identification (ID) number and issued a metal ID tag which is to be attached to the dog's collar. Please, provide the following when licensing a dog:

  • Proof of ownership - usually in the form of a veterinary bill / medical statement
  • If the dog is spayed or neutered - a certificate from the veterinarian showing that the dog has been spayed or neutered, unless this proof is already on file with the clerk
  • Proof of a rabies vaccination signed by a licensed veterinarian or a certificate stating why the life of the dog would be endangered by the vaccine

For Guide dogs, war dogs, hearing dogs, police work dogs, service dogs, working search dogs, detection dogs, or therapy dogs; satisfactory proof is required, such as a training certificate, etc. for licenses
