 North America’s Premier Dog Licensing Program Comes to Trent Hills

The Municipality of Trent Hills is delighted to announce that dog licensing is now managed by DocuPet, the world’s leading provider of pet licensing services. Across North America, only 13% of pets are licensed, despite bylaws requiring it in most municipalities, including Trent Hills.

Low licensing compliance is a real problem, both for Animal Control teams, and for the dogs themselves. Without proper identification and easily accessible information about a dog, they will end up in a shelter if they go missing.

Hassle-Free Licensing - With Benefits

The Trent Hills DocuPet solution will streamline licensing for all involved. Dog owners can now license and renew their dog licences online at by calling 1 (855) 249-1370, by mail, or in person.

DocuPet’s membership program also offers several unique benefits, including the HomeSafeTM Lost Pet System that has reunited hundreds of pets with their owners. One in three pets become lost at some point in their lives and licensing plays a critical role in helping them return home safely and avoids costly visits to the shelter.

All new dog licence purchases and renewals will be valid for 365 days from the date purchased, at which point they must be renewed. The cost of a licence is $20 for dogs who have been altered (spayed/neutered) and $35 for unaltered dogs.

 Anyone who has previously licensed a dog with the Municipality of Trent Hills will receive a reminder from DocuPet by mail with information about how to renew their licence and activate their online account, should they choose.

 If residents hold a current dog licence, it will remain valid until its current expiry date. Licence-holders can expect to receive renewal information well in advance of the expiry, but should they want to activate their online account earlier to utilize the HomeSafeTM Lost Pet Service, they will be able to do so.
