Animal welfare

Top tasks:

We deal with animal welfare licences for pet shops; animal boarding; horse riding; dog breeding establishments and the keeping of dangerous and wild animals.

A vet will inspect the premises before a licence can be issued and the applicant has to pay for this. We carry out our own inspections to ensure that standards are maintained.

Please contact us for further information about dog breeding, keeping dangerous wild animals or lost and stray dogs.


Looking after dogs and staying safe 

Looking after or owning a dog can be very rewarding. We have produced this booklet with the help of College Garth Kennels to give some practical tips about how to have a safe, harmonious relationship with your dog.
