Surrey woman guilty of breeding dogs without a licence

A woman from Walton-on-Thames has pleaded guilty to breeding dogs and advertising them for sale without a licence.

The 71 year old appeared at Guildford Magistrates Court on January 20.

She was given a conditional discharge suspended for a period of two years and ordered to pay full prosecution costs of £617 plus a victim surcharge of £21.

The case was brought by Elmbridge Borough Council following a lengthy investigation by their Environmental Health and Licensing Team.

During this time, the woman was warned that she would face legal proceedings if she continued to breed and advertise dogs for sale without a licence.

The Council said she had previously been given advice and guidance about  licensing requirements.
 
Cllr Mary Marshall, Portfolio Holder for The Environment said it takes animal welfare seriously - and "this case highlights why it is important for those  running a business involving breeding and selling dogs to ensure that they have the appropriate licence in place.

She said if in doubt, the council can be contacted for information.
