If you own a dog, you must register it in Hamburg immediately, the registration must be made within 2 weeks after you start owning the dog or, in the case of puppies, up to the age of 3 months.

You can register your dog in your responsible consumer protection office or - if it is already open - your center for business, building and the environment - or in a Hamburg customer center of your choice, but not in writing or by telephone. The registration can also be made by an adult, authorized person. The fee reduction is only available for dog tax exemption or dog tax reduction according to § 11 paragraphs 1 to 3 of the Dog Tax Act (not for the other dog tax exemptions or dog tax reductions). Your data will be forwarded to the tax office responsible for dog tax. An additional tax registration is not required. Online registration is also possible.
