New dog breeding rules

Just heard this on Sky news....

Tough new dog breeding rules are being brought in across the country to ensure the safety of Britain's pets.

The legislation announced today will tighten the rules around breeding and selling dogs and will make it illegal for anyone to sell puppies under eight-weeks-old.

Anyone breeding and selling three or more litters of puppies a year will be required to get a licence to do so.

I wonder if this will reduce the number of back street puppy farms ??

Who is going to police it .....the likes of gumtree and preloved ...i am forever looking on gumtree weekly and reporting sickly looking pups our area if you have more than 3 litters in a year you have to have a licence but its hard to enforce when the council are told these are my mums pups or my partners ......its a great idea in theory but i dont hold much hope that it makes a difference especially with all the designer breeds at the moment. ..the latest is Chippets ....ChihuahuaX Whippet lurchers ....
