Opening a pet shop
Anyone wishing to open up a pet shop where live animals are for sale must have a licence.
Licences are required by anyone who home boards dogs, provides day care for dogs or has a boarding kennel establishment. A licence is also required by anyone who breeds three or more litters in a year or breeds dogs as part of a business.
