Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
The Breeding of Dogs Act 1973, as amended by the Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999, requires a local authority to have regard to certain matters in determining whether to grant a licence for the keeping of a dog breeding or rearing establishment and about which conditions must be included in the licence. One such matter is that accurate records should be kept at the premises of the establishment and made available for inspection (section 1(4)(i) of the 1973 Act).
These Regulations, which apply to Scotland only, prescribe the form in which those records must be kept.

1973 c. 60. Section 1(4)(i) was inserted by section 2(2) of the Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999 (c. 11).
