Animal Welfare licence

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals)(England) Regulations 2018 came into effect on 1st October 2018.  Under these Regulations any person carrying out any of the activities listed below will be covered under a single type of licence known as an ‘animal activity licence’. 

  • selling animals as pets
  • boarding cats or dogs
  • providing boarding kennels for dogs
  • providing home boarding (including day care) for dogs
  • hiring out horses
  • breeding dogs dog breeders
  • keeping or training animals for exhibition

The ‘animal activity licences’ have nationally-set conditions for businesses providing animal-related services. We cannot change these conditions as they are set in the legislation.  Businesses operating with these activities will need to comply with these conditions, and will be assessed before the license is granted to make sure they can meet them.

Licence conditions for each of the animal activities covered
