Services > Dog Licenses

Every dog, regardless of age, owned or harbored in New York State for longer than 30 days must be licensed in the town, city, or village where the dog is being harbored. The only license exemptions are as follows:

  • If the dog is less than four months of age and not running-at-large (off the owner’s premises)

  • If a non-resident brings a dog into New York State for less than 30 days and the dog is licensed according to the resident's state licensing laws

  • Dogs confined to the premises of any public or private hospital, research institution or a "Class A Dealer" with a certificate of exemption from the commissioner.
