Dog's life in Rotorua

Rotorua is on a dog roll. And dog owners should take a bow wow.

It appears only 84 of the 7500 dog owners are not registered with the Rotorua District Council. When the national dog database kicks in on July 1 this year, a record number of dogs in the district would have been registered.

Their names, and the names of their owners, are being lodged with the national dog database. An estimated 10,452 are in the council's database - among the highest level of registrations in the district.

The Rotorua District Council's manager of regulatory and support services, Jim Nicklin, outlined information over dog control at last week's meeting of the planning and bylaws committee. In a report, he said: "One of the parameters of the database is the inclusion of new standardised and abbreviated colours of dogs and breeds of dogs."
