Animal activities licences

This covers:

  • dog breeding
  • pet selling
  • hiring out horses
  • boarding for dogs and cats
  • home boarding for dogs
  • dog day care

Licence renewals

All renewal inspections have been suspended.

Any current licences due to expire will now be valid for a period of three months, or until we can inspect the premises, whichever is sooner.

If a licence is due for renewal, we will accept the application now if a business wishes to submit it.

Renewal payments will not be requested until we are able to start booking inspections.

Interim inspections

All interim inspections have been suspended.

Interim inspection fees will not need to be paid until just before we are able to carry out the inspection.
