Dog register Registration

Registration can be made by post, telephone or online. A notification has already been made in other registers, such as TASSO, is not considered to be 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.

Who should I contact?

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

Which documents are required?

For registration, only the transponder number (identification number) of the transponder/chip, which the animal received in accordance with the chipobligation in the veterinary practice, is required. It is issued when a transponder (chip) is inserted by veterinarians. The identification number shall be kept and kept available for register registration. 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. It is also a place where the identification numbers of transponders implanted before the legal chip requirement in 2011 can be specified.

What are the fees?

There are one-time fees to be paid when re-registering.

Fee: 17,25 EUR
Payment in advance: No
for online registration

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

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines must be observed. Please contact the appropriate body.

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

What else should I know?

When you sign up online, proof of registration is displayed. In the case of written or telephone registration, postal mail must be requested. The proof will then be sent by post.
The non-notification constitutes an administrative offence in accordance with 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 EUR 10,000.00.
