Doglaw for Professionals: Update 2018 for England, including the proposed new licensing Regulations


We can now confirm the dates and venues for Trevor Cooper’s new ‘tour’ of half day seminars.  This will include an overview of the new draft Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities) (England) Regulations 2018 which, if passed, are due to come into force on 1st October 2018.  This law will create a new licensing framework for selling dogs as pets, boarding of dogs (including home boarding and day care), breeding dogs and keeping or training dogs for exhibition).


The half day seminars costing only £100 + VAT per person will cover New Developments in Doglaw in 2018 in England and will include an overview of these new Regulations as well as the draft Animal Welfare (Sentencing and Recognition of Sentience) Bill 2018 and consideration of the impact of recent High Court rulings on Breed Specific Legislation.
