If you are a county in one of the states who issue kennel license tags for commercial dog breeders, National Band & Tag is here to help!
Each state has its own definition of what a kennel, commercial breeder, and a pet store is. Generally, a “Kennel” means an enclosed, controlled area, inaccessible to other animals, in which a person keeps, harbors or maintains five or more dogs under controlled conditions. A general definition for a “commercial dog breeder” is someone who breeds a large number of dogs, within a certain time frame. Each state’s definitions, standards of care, licensing, registration and permits, and inspections can be viewed on this PDF, provided by the Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
For counties who need to issue kennel licensing tags, there are two main options to choose from:
Option 1: A tag to go on the kennel with corresponding tags for the dogs.
Option 2: No tag on the kennel, just tags for the dogs.
However your county decides to do their kennel licensing tags, National Band & Tag has lots of customization options to fit your needs. You can shop by shape (square, round, oblong, rectangle, etc.). The most popular style for the tag that goes on the kennel is style #187. We have 11 different colors to choose from, so you can have a different color every year. Your custom stamping can have your county’s name, maximum dog limits, sequential numbering, year, and more. Contact us today for a free quote on kennel license tags!
