Do you believe a seller should be licensed?

When is a license required?

A license is not always required to breed or sell a puppy that has been bred by the advertiser and the requirements vary depending on the local council authority where the advertiser is located.

Any account placing 3 separate adverts in 12 months has to be registered as a breeder / professional seller on Pets4Homes, but it is only if the seller advertises 3 separate litters in the rolling 12 month period that the seller would be asked to contact the local council and discuss their licensing requirements if they do not already hold a license.

Our guides

Please see our resources which may guide you on whether a seller needs a license:

Important: If you believe that a person may require a license, we are asking that enquiries are made directly to us as well as the local authority for the advertiser who we are able to liaise with to ensure that all requirements are met.
