That this House recognises that dogs are not a commodity and should be bought only from licensed breeders; notes that puppies sold in pet shops or by other third parties are almost exclusively bred on puppy farms; and, given the fact that the Pet Animals Act 1951 is out of date, calls on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to consider introducing secondary legislation under the provisions of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to prohibit the sale of puppies in pet shops.
