Dog license in Marbella

Has anyone else experienced the nightmare that is getting a dog licence that is required for 'dangerous' dogs?


If you own a dog over 20lbs you need a licence and a muzzle (on dog not you) and a short lead, but need another separate licence for owning dangerous dog. If you have these dogs and don't have a licence beware of massive fines etc. Incidentally your dog may be classed as dangerous here but not in the UK.

If anyone wants to know the procedure let me know because I have spent the day like a headless chicken (that probably requires a licence too..) trying to get all nonsense paperwork together for town hall! What I fail to understand is why the town hall doesn't write clear procedures with a checklist to ease the process for everyone concerned.

License for dangerous dogs in Spain
by: Jo

The licence required to own a dangerous dog saga continues.... After some 5 months it has taken to obtain the licence so I can legally walk my dogs, I took them out (2 rotweillers) with all required paperwork on me, dogs on short leads as required and both with muzzles as required....only to find out you CANT WALK 2 DOGS TOGETHER!!!

Beware this means ANY dogs, not just dangerous dogs! Also, dangerous dogs even with licences, leads and muzzles cannot be walked past schools or parks ! Whilst I understand the need to protect the public, this is getting just more than a little bit silly. A more cynical person may think the police are simply looking for things to fine people for.....

Thanks Lisa. I am at the last leg of it now but I'm sure it would be really helpful to people to have a list. Also, its not just the list of items required for the actual licences...when you go to the Town Hall, you must be registered in that particular padro. To do this you will need passport, NIE, plus an electric and water bill. If you are renting you will need the rental agreement, PLUS the two bills in the name of the owner of the property. This caused massive problems yesterday for at least 4 people that I overheard so it clearly happens a lot.

Also, v important...there is a timescale to get the dog licence paperwork in after you have registered at the padro! If anyone wants the procedure for it all pm me (you can see I still havent got over the stress of it all yet lol) x
