Information which might help[edit]

A tag will be issued once the dog is registered at the Shire of Christmas Island (Shire). In public places the tag must be worn at all times and notifications must be provided to the Shire when there is a change in ownership or address of the dog. Fines imposed for an unregistered dog are currently $110 and dogs found in public places without a collar or registration tag render the owner liable to a $55 fine.

In public places leashes, restraints and/or harnesses must be used to control dogs and there are no designated exercise areas on Christmas Island. Dogs not restrained correctly render the owner/controller liable to the provisions of the Dog Act (CI) 1976 that may carry a modified penalty. The same applies for dogs that become a nuisance, especially dog barking and dangerous dogs. It is also the responsibility of the dog owner and/or controller to pick up any excreta the dog may leave behind and to dispose of.

A dog pound is provided at the Shire Depot and nuisance or missing dogs can be reported to the Shire Ranger on 0439 215 309 or 91648300 (extension 242). Further general information regarding dog registration and control can also be directed to these numbers, or in person at the Shire Administration Office, George Fam Centre Murray Road Christmas Island.
