You don’t need a pet shop licence if you only keep pedigree animals which you breed, or you sell the offspring of an animal you keep as a pet (though you may need a dog breeding licence).
You must not be disqualified from operating a pet shop, keeping an animal boarding establishment, keeping a dog or having custody of animals.
