Dog breeding licences

If you breed and selling dogs you must have a licence.

This does not have to be your main business or occupation, it could be your hobby.

Applying for a dog breeding licence

View and download the animal welfare licence application here

When we receive your application and fee we will arrange for an inspection of the premises resulting in a report upon the suitability of the application.

Conditions on the licence will include:

  • bitches are not mated if less than one year old
  • bitches do not give birth to more than six litters of puppies
  • bitches do not give birth to puppies before the end of the period of twelve months beginning with the day on which they last gave birth to puppies
  • accurate records in a form prescribed by regulations are kept at the premises and made available for inspection.

Licensed premises will also be subject to unannounced inspections.
