Ban on third party puppy sales under consideration

15 hrs ago

The Government is considering banning puppy sales by pet shops and other third party dealers.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove said a ban will be explored as part of a package to drive up welfare standards alongside enhanced licensing conditions for breeders due to come into force later this year.

The possible ban would mean anyone buying or adopting a dog would deal directly with the breeder or an animal rehousing centre.

Last year, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) concluded that a ban on third party sales would lead to the creation of an illegal market following evidence from Dogs Trust and Blue Cross.


Best wishes for this initiative.
