Gazette readers are more likely to support a ban on the selective breeding of dogs…
A NEW Puppy Breeding Kennel could be established for Springside if plans are approved.
An application to set up a dog breeding business in Springside Terrace – which would keep the health of puppies at the forefront – was submitted to planning chiefs last week.
The claimant said: “The size of the kennels I am building are what is required by law for the size and weight of the dogs I am looking to breed, plus an adjoining whelping area, again required for a breeding business.
“This will be a full time undertaking and will take place seven days a week. Work will start at 7am and continue throughout the day ending around 10pm when the dogs are returned to their in-house kennels.
“No noisy tasks will be carried out before 9 a.m. and before 8 p.m. I decided to build internal kennels at a higher cost, but I am aware that I am in a built-up area, so I try to limit any issues that may arise with neighbors. The design of the kennels is also to keep the health and welfare of the dogs as the main thought of this company.
“Public access to the kennels and grounds will be limited to agreed times between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., with only one family at a time able to visit. This will not affect parking at the property.
