A licence will help reunite you with your pet. You should also ensure that your pet’s information is updated in our files as this is our sole means of identifying him should he go missing.

Note that there is now a new law introduced to the pet world; in Quebec it is now illegal to use pronged or remote shock collars. After an initial warning, if one is "caught” a second time, the fine is quite hefty.
Regulation provides for stricter control of certain dogs, including a shorter leash (1.25 m) and a muzzle for dogs at risk such as Pit bulls. For other species, the maximum length of the leash must be 1.85 m. However, any dog weighing 20 kg or more must wear a harness or a halter in addition to the leash. Extensible leashes are not regulatory.
