Local Authority

We have compiled a list of the local authorities in the UK who are issuing licences for dog breeding. The information is correct at time of publication 1st October 2018. Information was obtained via a freedom of information request as the government do not have a list of names and addresses of local authorities (Its true!). Where applicable we have included the published cost of the licence and if this includes the veterinary inspection. In most cases the councils do not publish the cost of inspection.

  • Average price of a breeding licence: £210 plus vet costs
  • Highest price is £788 (Lambeth)
  • Lowest price is £58 (3 different boroughs Copeland, Charnwood and Bolsover)
