Welcome to Cuyahoga County's Online Dog Licensing



To Login you must scroll down

  1.  If you have purchased a license in the past three years, you already have an account in our system. To log in, use your 2019 or 2020 license number AND last name. License numbers are located on your renewal form. If you need assistance locating them, please see the  Online License Guide: How to purchase and renew.
  2. If using the number from your tag, add the prefix for the corresponding year. Tag number 12345 from 2020 would need to be entered as 20-12345. A 2019 license would be 19-XXXXX.
