Dog tax

If you live in the Municipality of Veldhoven and you have one or more dogs, you have to pay dog tax. You can register and deregister dogs online. You receive annually a tax demand for the dog tax.

Register Deregister

If you prefer to arrange this at the town hall, please make an appointment.

Bring with you

  • Proof of your identity
  • If you wish to deregister: the dog tag

Price

Detail Price 2019
Per dog € 84,18
Kennel rate € 252,54
New dog tag (replacement) € 8,90

Exemption from tax

If you have deregistered your dog and returned the dog tag you do not have to pay for the months that you no longer own the dog. 

Dog tag

You receive a dog tag to show that you paid the dog tax and that you are a registered owner of a dog. If the dog tag is lost, you have to buy a new one at the counter in the town hall. Make an appointment for this by calling 14 040.

Guide dogs for the blind

If you have a guide dog for a visual impairment, you do not have to pay dog tax. You will, however, need to notify the municipality.

  • Register your dog via the website, and fill in on the registration form that your dog is a guide dog. You can add an attachment as proof (for example, a copy of the dog’s documents to show it is a guide dog for the blind).
  • If you wish to register the dog at the counter, take a copy of the dog’s documents with you.

Objection

If you do not agree with the amount of tax you are expected to pay, you can object.

Why dog tax?

The municipality uses the money of the dog tax for:

  • the development and maintenance of dog-walking routes and sites (PDF, 6.0 MB)
  • checking on possession and nuisance (for example excessive barking)
  • cleaning up dog waste
  • dog waste bags. If you own a dog you can pick up free dog waste bags at the reception desk in the town hall
