We issue certificates to veterinary surgeons for them to complete.

Veterinary surgeons obtain them by contacting the animal welfare team

Veterinary surgeons may design their own certificate, however it must be in line with Schedule 2 of the Docking of Working Dogs’ Tails (Wales) Regulations 2007. To help ensure everyone works effectively we prefer certificates are ordered from us.
