Irish breeders call for better regulation

Breeders in Northern Ireland last week called for proper regulation of their industry and also called for the Department of Agriculture to ban people convicted of cruelty from keeping animals.

Canine Breeders of Ireland, which represents around 600 breeders, said that government vets should be made responsible for animal welfare and given powers to deal with unscrupulous puppy farms.
Giving evidence to the agriculture committee, the group said that the term puppy farm was a derogatory term which the public associated with unregulated breeders who treated dogs cruelly.

The group continued that its members were proud of the puppies they produced and that their premises
were open to inspection by councils.
