In August 2021, the Government launched a consultation on proposed changes to the rules governing the commercial and non-commercial movement of pets, including a ban on the movement of dogs which are more than 42 days pregnant into Great Britain.

We are carefully reviewing the feedback gathered from our consultation and wider engagement with stakeholders, and a response to the consultation will be published in due course.
