Licensing Dog Breeding Establishments

The relevant legislation in this area is the Breeding of Dogs Acts 1973 and 1991.

A "breeding establishment" applies to any person who carries on a business of breeding dogs with a view to their being sold in the course of such business.

The Acts prescribe standards of management and accommodation and provides for a process of inspection.

An annual inspection takes place, upon renewal of the licence, by the City's Animal Welfare service.
