On the 11th April 2012 the long awaited RSPCA / BVA AWF Puppy Contract and Puppy Information Pack (PIP) was launched at the British Small Animal Veterinary Association Congress.
The Contract can be used by any puppy purchaser or breeder by downloading it from the website: www.puppycontract.org.uk
It’s use will help puppy buyers in their search for a healthy and well socialised puppy. Breeders will also have the reassurance that the puppy purchaser is buying a puppy for the right reasons and will provide an excellent home for one of her pups.
It is hoped that Contract and PIP will become an industry standard and is designed to help good breeders demonstrate the care and attention they have devoted to their puppies’ breeding and upbringing.
