There will be new ways to license a dog in 2014.

Trumbull County Dog Warden Gwen Logan said her office is planning to raise its license fee.

As part of the state’s biennium budget, the legislature mandated dog kennels to sell one year, three year and permanent dog tags starting in 2014. A permanent dog tag would cost $180.

Logan said it’s up to each owner to decide what license is right for them.

“If you have a dog that is a large breed and it’s five years or older, I would suggest getting a one-year tag,” Logan said. “The three year tag certainly, you would hope the dog lives three years and if you have a smaller breed, a permanent tag is a great idea because a lot of small breeds will live 16 to 18 years.”
