Third party selling of puppies WILL be banned

The government has confirmed it will be banning third party sales of puppies and kittens, Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley announced today (23 December).

This is the full announcement . If you ever take a puppy in lieu of a stud fee you need to be aware of this. Also bear it in mind if you buy a puppy for showing and you decide pre 6months of age that it hasn’t made the grade so will be sold on.
