Taking Care of Your Pet

A dog license is valid for 3 years and the dog must have an updated rabies vaccination to renew the license.

Dog Parks

Dogs in Hong Kong can access the city’s many country parks but they are severely restricted within the city limits. Hong Kong Island used to be equipped with the Wanchai Dog Park which extremely popular with dog owners and walkers in the city, but this park was closed in January 2010 to make way for the Central-Wanchai bypass. A new dog park has now been created on North Point Pier on Kam Hong Street on the grounds of the former North Point Estate. This park, though smaller than the Wanchai Dog Park, is equipped with stone walls and sand pools for the canines. The walking path at Bowen Road, in spite of being associated with deadly dog poisoning incidents, continues to be popular with dog owners and walkers. Victoria Park, located at the Peak, is another option. Another popular park is the park behind the Bel Air Phase One Development in Cyberport.
