The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) will begin to enforce new rules governing dog breeders. Large scale dog breeders will be brought under regulation and licensing requirements under the new law that will apply to breeders selling more than 25 dogs a year, along with retail facilities that sell animals.
DATCP must develop specific administrative rules. The department wants nominations for a 12-member advisory committee that will oversee the process. DATCP is accepting nomination for the advisory panel through February 10th. The law will take effect on June 1, 2011.
