Dog Licences


All dogs in Brockton must be licenced each year and must wear their dog tag at all times.

We encourage every owner to read Brockton's Dog Control By-Laws  which outline regulations around dogs in Brockton:

All Dog Owners must keep their dogs on a leash and abide by "poop and scoop" regulations.

If you have any concerns about dogs in Brockton, contact our Animal Control Officer.
