Recent legislation to come into effect in April 2020 will ban third party puppy sales in other words the sale of puppies by pet shops.
This will effectively put some 74 highly respected and locally regulated puppy vendors out of business. One of such is FSB member Chris owner of the Canine Club, Lingfield, Surrey.
Following advice from Andy poole Deputy Head of FSB Policy we hot footed with local Area Leader our way to Chris’ local MP Sam Gyimah. We are pleased to report that Sm grasped the seriousness of the issue and the legislation immediately and gave our DM advice of the route to follow to achieve an amendment to the Bill offering his full support. We will keep you updated on progress.
