Puppy Love investigations have exposed many licensed puppy farms and agents, which have in turn been
used to raise awareness and mount public pressure, as a consequence, puppy farms have been closed and also
The licensed breeding establishments you see on the films are just a few of many we have complaints
against. Councils do not have to enforce The Animal Welfare Act nor it seems are they expected to enforce
their own license conditions as you could walk into any pup farm in Wales and find breaches.
The dogs are not in good condition since they are kept in filthy,
barren enclosures and are never
exercised. Many are even lacking in the very basics of life; water. Most of the time they are in
semi-darkness and some are in solitary confinement for years on end. This is very stressful for dogs,
who are pack animals; the stress takes its toll on both their physical and mental health. Their pups are
fearful as fear is the first thing they pick up from their mother.
On closer inspection of dogs we found rotten teeth, conjunctivitis,cherry eye, glaucoma, infected ears
running with pus, mammary gland infections and matted coats. All these conditions have been untreated for
years and dogs are still expected to produce pups on every season regardless of their health. From what we
have witnessed, especially on working farms, any old shed, barn or pig stye will do to house dogs, they
spend their lives in dark, dingy buildings with no outdoor runs or exercise given, the lucky ones get
cleaned out once a day and fed and watered and that is all the human contact they have. Others are not
so lucky and don't even get basic care once a day.
The farmers seem to think this is acceptable and treat dogs like livestock, which they are not!
The consequence of this is that puppies are not socialised, adult dogs are often bred until they can
breed no more and illnesses are left untreated,as vets cost money.
We are often asked if we report what we find to RSPCA, the answer is yes. We have made statements and
produced vet reports for RSPCA, given them our film to view and allowed them to use our information to
educate Welsh councils .
We ask that you obtain written permission to use copyrighted puppy farm photos and film contained within this website.
