Licence ALL dog breeders
Thousands of puppies are born to unlicenced breeders
Unlicenced breeders are breeding with unhealth screened dogs or dogs with poor results which results in puppies being born with ongoing health issues causing pain & suffering for the dog and both heartache & financial cost for the puppy owner.
We propose that ALL breeders be licenced be they be breeding one litter or 100 litters, charged on a sliding scale increasing as the number of breeding dogs/ litters increase. This way the health standards required under the Animal Welfare Regulations will apply for ALL dogs and their litters.
This would mean anyone breeding with an unhealthy dog could potentially be prosecuted.
The funds raised by the licence fees could go toward enforcing the regulations.
