Dog Register Registration

Registration can be made by post, telephone or online. A report that has already been made in other registers, such as TASSO, is not considered a registration in the central register. Registration in the central register must therefore be carried out in any case.

The registration in the dog register does not replace the separate registration of the dog in the place of residence.

The responsibility lies with the Central Register according to § 16 NHundG, which is managed by KSN Kommunales Systemhaus Niedersachsen GmbH on the basis of a loan.

For registration, only the transponder number (identification number) of the transponder/chip that the animal has received in the veterinary practice in accordance with the chip requirement is required. It is given by veterinarians when a transponder (chip) is inserted. The identification number must be retained and made available for registration purposes. A tattoo number is not sufficient and does not meet the legal requirements, as every dog older than 6 months must have an implanted transponder. The identification numbers of transponders that were implanted before the legal chip requirement in 2011 can also be indicated.

There are one-time fees to be paid for a new registration.

Fee: 17,25 EUR
Payment in advance: No
when registering online

Fee: 27,97 EUR
Payment in advance: No
in case of registration by telephone or in writing

Deadlines must be observed. Please contact the competent authority.

Application Deadline: 1 Month
If the dog is older than six months at the time of commencement of dog ownership, registration in the dog register must be made within one month of commencement of dog ownership.

When registering online, the proof of registration will be displayed for printing. When registering in writing or by telephone, you must also apply for it to be sent by post. The proof will then be sent by post.
Failure to register constitutes an administrative offence pursuant to Section 18 (1) No. 4 of the Lower Saxony Law on the Keeping of Dogs (NHundG) and can be punished with a fine of up to 10,000.00 euros.
