Posting on the topic of puppy farms, mills etc, and pet shop retailing of pups. Firstly the whole puppy farm thing needa to be strictly regulated. Licenses should be introduced based upon compliance with a strict established legal formwork of numbers of animals allowed, size and design of the pens, number of staff engaged to the number of whelping bitches allowed. Also strict welfare, health and cleanliness regulations. As we all know the AWL and the RSPCA have little by way of resources and expertise in legal matters. Developing a strong legislative framework, adding Police and Gov offical investigations and prosecutions is the only manner in which these practises can be made humane.
