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 the local authority to have regard to certain matters in determining whether to grant a licence for the keeping of a breeding establishment and about which conditions must be included in the licence. One such matter is that accurate records should be kept at the premises and made available for inspection (section 1(4)(i) of the 1973 Act).
These Regulations, which do not apply to Scotland, prescribe the form in which those records must be kept.

(1)
1973 c. 60, as amended by section 2 of the Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999 (c. 11).
