To ask the Scottish Government what changes it is considering to legislation regarding (a) animal breeding and (b) the sale of pets.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 22 March 2017

The possible changes to legislation regarding animal breeding and sale of pets are being considered as part of an ongoing review of pet welfare. The Scottish Government has already held a number of meetings with stakeholders around that ongoing review; and will be looking at the need for legislative change. The Scottish Ministers will bring forward plans for appropriate full public consultation in due course.
