Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline to renew dog licensing has been extended from March 31 to May 1. This means that there will be no penalties charged until after May 1. Also, as we are no longer accepting in-person dog license requests. Please submit your application and copy of the rabies certification, along with fee, via the United States Postal Service. Should you have any questions, please call 651-714-3500 during regular business hours.


A dog license must be purchased for each dog over the age of six months residing in the City of Woodbury. Dog licenses must be renewed every two years.

In 2020, licenses should be purchased prior to May 1. If licenses are purchased after May 1, the license fees will double (with the exception of new residents and newly acquired dogs).

Dog licenses may be purchased via mail. You must include a copy of the rabies certificate and a check payable to the City of Woodbury (credit/debit cards are not accepted via mail). Applications can be mailed to: City of Woodbury Dog License, 8301 Valley Creek Road, Woodbury, MN 55125.
