Responsibilities of Licensed Breeders in Texas

Texas professional license defense attorneyDog and cat breeders in Texas are required to be licensed. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) is the regulatory body responsible for licensure and enforcement of Texas breeders.

Responsibilities of Licensed Breeders in Texas

Licensed breeders have a number of responsibilities and standards of care to which they must adhere. Failure to comply with the Licensed Breeders Administrative Rules can lead to administrative sanctions and penalties and/or license suspension or revocation.

Under the Dog or Cat Breeders Program, the responsibilities of licensed breeders include, but are not limited to:

Pre-license inspections are required for certain dog and/or cat breeder establishments who do not hold a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Class A animal dealer's license. The inspection is to ensure your facility is in compliance with state laws prior to obtaining your license. To help you pass inspection, the TDLR provides this Pre-License Inspection Checklist.

Defending Against Allegations

If you are a licensed dog or cat breeder in Texas, and the TDLR notifies you of a filed complaint or pending investigation, then your license may be in jeopardy. It's important to take allegations of violations or misconduct seriously from the start and to act quickly to mount a defense against the allegations. You do not want to face the licensing board alone. You need an experienced professional license defense attorney by your side, to advocate for your rights and protect your license.
