Puppy Farming . :Revised Draft of Dog breeding Establishment guidelines.Your views required

The public review on the revised draft of dog breeding establishments guidelines is open for all comments  until 28th February. The Guidelines cover the running, inspection and licencing of commercial dog breeding premises including the health and welfare of the dogs contained. 

Given Ireland's poor reputation as one of the PuppyFarming capitals of Europe this is your chance to increase the welfare of the dogs in these  breeding centres. Ireland has 77 registered Dog breeding establishments with a trade worth millions of Euro. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/sad-realities-of-our-domestic-puppy-farming-industry-1.2745436
