ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Welsh Assembly Government will carry out a review of the licensing and regulation of dog breeding in Wales. This move follows from the data gathered by local authorities which shows that there are 249 unlicensed dog breeding premises. Elin Jones, the Welsh rural affairs minister, says that the review does not mean that there are welfare issues associated with such premises. She emphasizes that the data warrants further investigation of the licensing requirements.
