Dog breeding establishments

To run a business of breeding dogs for sale you need a licence from the Local Authority. This includes all dog breeding businesses, including a private dwelling.

A premises inspection by a Licensing Officer will be arranged, on receipt of the complete application and appropriate fee, to determine the suitability of the premises to be licensed for such purpose and each application is considered on its own merits. Where it is felt necessary a further inspection by a vet may be arranged, the fee for which is payable by the applicant.

Where a licence is granted it imposes conditions relating to the feeding, housing, welfare of the animals and places restrictions on the number of litters each bitch can have.

Please Note:

If you have a complaint regarding a business which is licensed by Slough Borough Council or a business which you think may be unlicensed, please contact the licensing office to enable us to undertake an investigation.
