Licensing of dogs kept on commercial premises
Dogs kept for breeding or sale in dog farms or pet shops
All dogs that are currently kept in dog farms for breeding purposes have to be licensed under a breeding group dog licence via the Pet Animal Licensing System (PALS).
All dogs aged nine weeks and above that are intended for sale by pet shops and dog farms must be licensed under a retail group dog licence via the PALS before they are sold.
When a dog is sold, pet shops and dog farms are required to perform the transfer of licensing, be they to individuals or other pet businesses via PALS.
Applying for a breeding or retail group dog licence
You must update your group dog licence if there are any changes to the licence owner and/or dog details via PALS (other than the address at which they are kept).
