CHANGES TO ANIMAL LICENSING LEGISLATION

On the 1 October 2018 a new statutory instrument (2018 No.486) comes into force, namely The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. This new legislation introduces an updated licensing system in England for five activities involving animals: selling animals as pets, providing for or arranging for the provision of boarding for cats or dogs, hiring out horses, dog breeding and keeping or training animals for exhibition. The introduction of the legislation has highlighted the need to include “home boarding” and “day-care” in our licensing schemes.
