Puppy Farms

A puppy farm is a large dog breeding facility created to mass produce puppies for profit. Breeding females typically have back-to-back litters for five or six years, then are killed. 

While most puppy farms lack any structured facility plan or design and provide husbandry on an ad hoc basis only, others are purpose-built and are specifically designed to house and breed large numbers of dogs for sale.


Both types of facilities can fail to meet the animals’ behavioural, psychological, social and physiological needs. Additionally, while some puppy farms house animals in filthy, unhygienic conditions, there are others that are comparatively ‘clean’ but still permanently confine dogs in barren cages and breed them continually, thereby failing to meet acceptable animal welfare standards.
