Dog New proposed breeding laws, a step in the right direction

Post by LizP on Thu Feb 02 2017, 20:27

It looks like the pressure and consultations might be paying off, at least a little, with new breeding/puppy selling laws proposed

All they then need to do is enforce them...

If they can clamp down on internet sales it would affect that import market too, as that's their main sales point now.

Fantastic! I think all breeders should need to have a licence.

Defo backstreet breeders boil my water though i believe it should ve just one litter unless you have a valid excuse for breeding your dog in the first place.

What I really hope is that they'll have some way of tracing importers who have multiple phones, set up addresses in multiple areas and wouldn't bat an eyelid at creating fake paperwork. And then throw a very heavy book at them.

it's a start, but it's still not enough. a byb can breed two litters a year & make lots of money on the side without a licence. i would restrict it to one - and even then, that's only to cover the odd genuine accidental mating! maybe in time?

the KC has already refused to register any 'third party' puppy (ie those bought from pet shops etc), and are talking about other ways to clamp down on registering pups.

if only the government, the KC, the veterinary services and the top rescue organisations could get together and try to get a tougher, more humane way of breeding!

I agree, but if offered the choice between a start and nothing at all, I'll take the start any day!

I know that various organisations (RSPCA, KC, Battesea, etc.) were pushing for much tougher and there's clearly a disappointment at one level. More to be done later, hopefully!

Nae such thing as an accidental mating!! If you have an unetuered dog it is the owners responsibilty to make sure the dog comes into contact with any other dog while in season. Its a bit like when people get pregnant you and only you are responsible for your dog .

 Completely agree Crystal! I've never understood accidental matings. If you're dog is in season why on earth are you letting her mix with other dogs!?

no, everyone is human & everyone makes mistakes. plus, not everyone agrees with terminating a pregnancy once the deed is done.

in an ideal world there would be no unplanned litters, but we all know that won't happen! if a person really does make a mistake & there's a litter at the end of it, what's the point in licencing them after the fact? one mistake can happen, but there should never be another!
