It is the law now, that if you supply or sell 6 or more dogs in a calendar year, then you are now required by law to immediately register with the Department of Agriculture so as to become a legitimate seller of pets/dogs!
Registered sellers are now legally required to now store records of who and when they sell dogs/pups to, along with other things!
Your Registered seller ID is now required to be included in all your ads, and this includes ads that are online and offline. This 6 dogs count will also include gifts of dogs or pups to family members!
