The Dog Control Act 1996 specifies that a dog cannot be registered to multiple people. One person over the age of 16 years is to be listed as the registered dog owner with the territorial authority. For example, if you are husband and wife and the dog is registered to your husband then the dog services online account must be created in your husband's name as the current legal owner of the dog.
