Home boarding of dogs
How to apply
If you would like to apply for a home boarding licence then please fill out an application form for a home boarding licence (DOC/47KB/3pages)
Completed forms should be returned to the licensing group along with the relevant animal licensing fee (DOC/23KB/3 pages).
The decision about whether the activity needs to be licensed depends on whether or not home boarders are running a business on a regular basis.
The reduced animal boarding fee is made in respect of home boarding:
- because the number of animals boarded in each premises is small
- the risks and the corresponding inspection burden for us is lower than with larger premises
An initial risk based inspection of any premises will be undertaken by a licensing officer.
