The New Dog Breeding Laws in the UK as of the 1st October 2018
The new UK law states that anyone breeding puppies for profit
(over £1000 per year profit)
must have a license issued by their local council.
Please read link above.
If a dog breeder doesn't have a licence they are now breaking the law.
All Licensed Breeder are required to provide and put on show, both on any websites and on their premises, their name and license number for prospective new owners to view at all times.
Please when looking for a reputable breeder to buy your puppy from ask for this information.
Regardless of whether the puppy your looking for is a pedigree or a crossbreed.
Being Kennel club registered is not the same as holding a license to breed dogs.
