Dogs & Backyard Chickens

If you have dogs or backyard chickens, it's important to licence them, follow some simple rules, and help keep West Vancouver a great place for all of its inhabitants, animal or human.

Dog licences

If your dog is older than six months, it needs a licence and must wear a tag. Licence fees collected enable Bylaw & Licensing Services to bring your pet back to you quickly, often within a 24-hour period.
