How much does a dog license cost, and when is it due?

Chesterfield County now offers a lifetime dog license for $10. The license will remain valid as long as the dog's rabies vaccination is kept up to date.


Kennel licenses are available for those residing in an agricultural district who own more than 3 dogs. Kennel licenses are still issued annually. The license tax is payable on January 1 and must be paid no later than January 31 of each year.

The fees are as follows:

  • Kennel – up to 20 dogs: $25
  • Kennel – up to 50 dogs: $35
