When considering microchips, what information should be contained on the chip?

What information should be registered on a pet passport, and who should verify that information?

Who should be responsible for enforcing legislation, and how should that be funded?

What kind of quality standards should be applied, and who would monitor these standards?

Do you think a national register would help? If so, what information do you think should be included in any such register (eg. unique breeder numbers; unique puppy identifying number)?

We don't need or want puppy farms.

There are enough dogs in the world many of whom need rescued. Dogs bred in puppy farms are not pure bred KC registered. They are badly treated and spend their lives having puppies in terrible conditions. Female dogs should have no more than 3 litters. STOP this cruelty and severly punish offenders. Dogs are family not factories

Dogs are not animals which can be bred in bulk. Rearing puppies needs individual care, attention, careful feeding and very importantly,socialising. This cannot happen in a situation where you have more than a couple of litters being raised at any one time or less than one carer per litter. Female dogs need a good active social life between rearing litters and should never be expected to have more than three litters in a lifetime and never more than at least one year apart. Just scratching the surface of reasons for the banning of bulk breeding dog establishments. Please consider legislation to prevent these businesses from continuing to cause misery to so many vulnerable animals.

Dogs and puppies are not stock animals , they need a home environment and individual attention , Large numbers can not get this attention . Socialisation is very important in the early life of a pup . When this is not done correctly, it effects the rest of the pups life .

When will the local councils realise dogs are companion animals and should never be 'farmed' but should be kept with human company as pets. Breeding without regard to living conditions or health including mental needs is utterly inhumane.
