Become a responsible dog owner
To apply to become a responsible dog owner you can either:
- For the discount to take effect in your next invoice, you need to submit this form by 30 April of that year.
- We'll process any applications we receive after 30 April from August onwards. We'll apply any discount earned to your next registration period.
- If you already have responsible dog ownership, you don't need to reapply each year.
If you're moving to a new address in Lower Hutt, you need to complete and submit a Transfer RDO status application form (PDF 155KB) to keep your RDO status.
