Do I need a Licence?

If you intend to operate a business of breeding dogs with a view to selling them, you may require a Licence.  If the number of litters delivered, or expected to be delivered, during a twelve month period exceeds five in total, you must obtain a Dog Breeding Licence.

Licences to breed dogs are issued under the Breeding of Dogs Act 1973, Breeding of Dogs Act 1991 and Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999 and are renewable annually.

All premises must satisfy basic standards for the health, welfare and safety of the dogs kept.  We will arrange a veterinary inspection to ensure that the accommodation is suitable.

The licence will be issued subject to compliance with licence conditions and payment of the licence fee.
