Dog Licenses

Wisconsin state law requires all dog owners to obtain an annual dog license from the Village Clerk. The cost of license is $10.00 for a spayed or neutered dog and $15.00 if not spayed or neutered. An additional $5.00 will be assessed if the owner fails to obtain a license by April 1st or within 30 days after the dog becomes 5 months or age or within 30 days after acquiring a dog. Four or more dogs require a Hobby Kennel license ($50.00); you will also need to license each dog individually.
