Dog Breeding Licence

Dog breeding licences are required if you:

  • Breed more than three or more litters per year (unless you can show that none of the puppies have been sold)
  • Breed puppies and advertise them for sale as a business (the number of litters produced per year does not matter)

This is not restricted to registered businesses – individuals can also be classed as a business depending on the extent of their activities.

Application process

  • Check that you and your establishment comply with the conditions for breeding dogs (see the Canine and Feline Sector Group link below)
  • Print an application form (see below)
  • Sign and return your application form to us along with a copy of your insurance, a copy of your Ofqual level two (or above) qualification or details of relevant business experience and your application fee payment. See the Table of Fees below for more information
  • You can make payment via card of cheque. Please make cheques out to Blaby District Council
  • After receiving the application we will contact you to arrange inspection of the premises
  • If the inspection of the premises is satisfactory you will be required to pay the licence grant fee, and the licence will then be issued. If the inspection is unsatisfactory, you will be contacted in writing and advised that the licence has been refused
  • If you have any doubts or wish to discuss your application please contact us

See The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 (available from the Canine and Feline Sector Group link below) for more information about this licence.
