Dog breeding

We have a statutory responsibility to enforce animal health and welfare regulations within the Borough. The Breeding of Dogs Act 1973 states that no one shall keep a breeding establishment for dogs except under the authority of a licence granted by us in line with the provisions of this Act. We will regularly inspect breeding establishments to ensure the accommodation is suitable in size and design and is well maintained. This legislation also regulates the age at which bitches can be mated and the number of litters she may have.
