Summary of outcome

The summary of responses is now available on the Ban on third party sales of puppies and kittens consultation page.

Original consultation

We want children and young people's views on banning third party sales of puppies and kittens.

Consultation description

We are asking you to give your views on banning commercial third party sales of puppies and kittens up to six months old.

Commercial third party sellers are licenced pet sellers.

Commercial third party sales may be associated with low welfare conditions for the animal. This is compared to buying direct from the breeder.

If we are to make a difference in Wales, your comments are really valuable in shaping the next steps.

This is why we are asking you for your opinion and also to provide us with any examples you may have. This may help us to understand the situation better.
