Dog Licenses

For the comfort and safety of all, we ask that you leave your dog at home when you come into City Hall to conduct business. Although we enjoy seeing your four legged family members we would like to encourage you to be conscious of others. As always, certified service animals are welcome.

Process


Per RSA 466:1 all dogs residing in the City of Laconia must be registered with the City Clerk prior to April 30 each year. When registering your dog, you will receive a tag with the license number issued imprinted, as well as a paper license. The tag issued must be worn on a collar at all times. Please remember that a valid rabies certificate and proof of inoculation (if applicable) is required to register. For a complete list of statutes pertaining to licensing your dog please visit the Chapter 466 Dogs and Cats page.
