I have downloaded the Big Book of Woof, but it doesn't answer my specific questions. i.e. If we sell a Pet Dealer's License, do we sell a regular license for each adult dog, or do they get the breeding license that covers up to 10 pets? (In that case, we issue regular licenses, but don't charge up to 10). It says the Breeding License is "Completely Voluntary". What does that mean? According to the rules, a Pet Dealer sells dogs from three or more litters, minimum. Does that mean that if someone breeds less than 2 litters doesn't qualify and has to get a "regular" license?
Also, how do we deal with pet owners who are just licensing their herd of hunting dogs? Because the legislature has decided to put the responsibility on the municipal offices in issuing these licenses I would like to have some clarity.

You can download that from the Dept of Agriculture website, along with the information that you are supposed to hand out to anyone who gets a permit.


I could only find a draft of the book of woof on VLCT's website - does anyone know if it's been finalized? Maybe you could send a link?

Could maybe a copy of this Pet Dealer� license or form be put out here for all of us to see?

Thank you for your input. I believe the kennel license is now replaced by the Pet Dealer's License. Can you send me a copy of the form that you have the owners sign?
I have the same problem here. We have a couple of hunters keeping beagles for their own use and someone with sled dogs. They are not breeders, but want a break on licenses. I am just a little uncertain how to deal with this this year. It goes against my conscience to issue licenses to these people when I know they don't really qualify, but I don't feel comfortable confronting them either.
I have a call into VLCT for specific clarification that I can't find in ANY of the piles of paper that I have downloaded from various sites. The State Veterinarian's office can't answer these questions as they are no longer involved in this licensing due to the legislature putting it in the hands of the municipalities.
If I get any information from them, I will try to let anyone know that is interested.

Does anyone understand how the Pet Dealer Permits are going to work this year as opposed to the former Kennel/Special Licenses? Is there any literature for us to use (other than the statutes)? I would like to be able to at least appear to know what I am talking about when these people come in to renew. We have a total of 7.
