Changes to dog registration categories
As of 2017, dog registration in South Australia has been simplified. Your dog now falls under one of these two simple categories.
- Standard Dog: A dog that is both desexed and microchipped (proof required)
- Non-standard Dog: all other dogs, even if they are exempt from rules around desexing or microchipping, such as dogs belonging to registered breeders, working livestock dogs etc.
All dog registrations are now managed online via the new Dog And Cats Online (DACO) system through the Dog and Cat Management Board.
