If your dog gets lost having a dog tag is very important.
And dog tags are currently being sold in Washington County for the year.
Every dog in the county has to be licensed.
The cost is $16 if purchased before January 31.
New laws allow people to buy a lifetime tag or three year tag, available at the auditor's office with different fees.
Service dogs and K-9's have different tags, which are also available at the auditor's office.
If you don't have a dog tag you can be charged with failure to register which is a minor misdemeanor and a $150 fine.
