New laws on the sale of puppies Print E-mail
Friday, 03 February 2017 16:15

New laws on the sale of puppies have been proposed:

1. The sale of puppies under 8 weeks is illegal

2. Anyone breeding three or more litters a year must apply for a formal licence

3. Sellers must provide written information about the animal they are selling

4. Online puppy sellers must display their licence number

Certainly the laws are a step in the right direction but do they go far enough?  Will they stop the unscrupulous conning the naive?  How easy will it be to falsify the date of birth? How many of the public will realise they should insist on seeing a licence number?  We believe that the term "puppy farmer" is misleading - in that most of these back street breeders appear to be very nice people showing puppies in nice, suburban homes - not farms, which is the impression many of the public have.  Just as important as a licence number is for the potential puppy buyer to see the puppy with its mother.
