Any person who wishes to breed dogs for sale as part of a business requires a licence.

If the animals are producing five or more litters in a 12 month period you must be licensed. You may be exempt if you can prove that the puppies are not being sold.

During an inspection the onus is on you to prove that you are not running a business.

Making an application

You can apply, renew a licence and pay online via GOV.UK.

The licence fees for 2017 is initial £160 and renewal £100.

Once the application is received, it will be processed and a vet and an officer from the council will visit to inspect the establishment. If it is found to be satisfactory a licence will be granted.

For further advice or to check if you require a licence, please contact us.
