Renewing a License

The Dog Tag Licensing system contains records for all licenses purchased in the previous year. It does not matter if you purchased your license online, by mail, in person or at a local vendor. The renewal process consists of five easy steps.

Step 1 - Locate your Record

By License Number- Enter your license number from the dog tag from the previous year. License numbers are unique so you will automatically be redirected to the tag configuration screen with your dog's information pre-populated.

By Owner Name - Enter your last name and click the search button to find all license registrations that match your last name. Locate your dog's record and click the continue button to move on to the tag configuration screen with your dog's information pre-populated.

Step 2 - Confirm and Update Dog Information

Select your license type and validate or update your dog's information. Your dogs age will automatically be updated each year. Once you have reviewed the information click the button "Add License to Shopping Cart" to continue.

Step 3 - View Cart and Continue to Checkout or Add Additional License

The shopping cart page allows you to confirm your order details and view the order total prior to checkout. If you are only registering one dog click the "Proceed to Checkout" button after reviewing your order. If you are registering more than one dog click the button "Add Additional License" to add additional licenses to your order.

Step 4 - Checkout

Provide your billing and owner address information and credit card data and complete your purchase. Your order total is visible on the right column during this process.
