  2. The only way forward is to CLOSE every breeder down ! None seem to be responsible in no way for the dog problem , when it is plain to see , this is a big part , make it law to spey and neuter , we seem to be encouraging this behaviour, through , not what you know , but , WHO you know ! The species is not dying out ! But being destroyed for money !

  3. Anyone have any further info on numbers or licences on Eoghan Sheehy? Mr Sheehy provided a pup with serious health problems including both hip and elbow dysplasia and ignores calls and letters

  5. Why are boarding kennels lumped in with these puppy farmers.. i see one mans name on that list that breeds pedigree dogs and is NOT a puppy farmer.. Its a shame to see this genuine man included with the rest of the scum

  6. Surely these people listed are just those that are licensed to breed dogs from the national database (publicly available data). Are they not a subset of the full list of breeders in Ireland including pedigree and non pedigree breeders. It appears someone created this list by removing the pedigree breeders? What is so inhumane about the majority of these breeders and their practices and how do these differ from pedigree breeders. The Licenses given (50 bitches) is a limit set, not the actual amount of bitches on premises. Is stand to be corrected..

    • No pedigree breeders with the required minimum number of breeding age bitches have been removed, if they are on the supplied council list they have been published. There was not, to our knowledge, any publicly available list of licensed breeders in the Republic, most of the councils required Freedom of Information requests to get their list and some were reluctant to oblige. As to “inhumane” practices, every one of these licensed breeders is supposed to be operating to the minimum standards applied by inspection. We do not know in many cases how thorough these inspections are. Many breeders have the maximum number of bitches licensed for breeding noted on their entry if that is what the council stated.

    • It continues because the law does not properly protect our companion animals neither by design nor practise. In this year a new survey will be done to show how much commercial breeding is allowed by law in these isles to be published on completion. A survey of commercial breeding carried out outside the law is not possible.
