The price of an annual dog licence will double in price next year in Jersey.

The cost will go up from £5 to £10 from 1st March 2020.

By law, every dog over six months old in Jersey must have one, excluding guide dogs.

A license is valid for one year and expires on 31 st January.

We have decided to increase the cost from 1 March 2020 in order to give dog owners plenty of time to purchase their licence for 2020 at the lower rate.
