Animal Licensing

From 1 October 2018 animal licensing is changing 

You will require a licence if you:

  • Sell animals as pets
  • Provide for, or arrange for the provision of boarding for cats or dogs (including boarding in kennels, catteries, home boarding for dogs and day care for dogs)
  • Hire out horses (whether for riding lessons or not)
  • Breed dogs (3 litters a year or more)
  • Breed, keep or train animals for exhibition (including performance)

The Regulations, conditions, application forms and fees are available below.

If you currently hold a licence with the Council, it will run until it's expiry date.
