You must obtain a licence from the council to keep a boarding establishment.

Before we grant a licence you must be able to demonstrate that the accommodation is suitable and the animals are well fed, exercised and protected from disease and fire.


The licence fee for home boarding is £262 (new applications and renewals). Licences last for either one, two or three years, dependent on the animal welfare rating score at the time of the inspection.
