Dog or cat boarding and day care licence

Activities that do not require a licence

  • Businesses where accommodation is provided for other people’s cats and dogs, but where the provision of that accommodation is not the purpose of that business, for example, veterinary practices where the accommodation provided is part of the treatment of the animal. 
  • Businesses that provide day care for dogs and do not keep them overnight (these are under the scope of dog day care facilities). 
  • Businesses that look after the dog within its normal place of residence (i.e. dog sitters).
