Dog breeding licence


Some inspections (often first inspections) require a veterinary surgeon to attend. Where this applies their charge is included in our fee. Prices include VAT where appropriate.  

  • First licence: £580 
  • Renewal: £310 
  • Grading review: £80 
  • Variation: £100 

A licence is valid for up to 3 years depending on inspection and star grading. 


Refunds of licence fees are not normally given. Only in exceptional circumstances, as deemed by the Head of Regulatory Services, will a refund be considered. Any refunds given may be subject to an administration charge or reduced if officers or the council’s vet have made site visits.
