How to apply for a dog breeding licence
Under the Breeding of Dogs Act 1973, any dog breeding establishment requires a licence from the council.
A breeding establishment means any dog breeding establishment (including a private dwelling) that produces five or more litters of puppies for sale per year.
It is unlawful for a bitch to give birth more than once a year. Therefore the five litters will have to be from five or more separate bitches.
