The regulations are quite confusing. The USDA requires dogfood producers to purchase the dogs from a supplier that is registered with the USDA but then it doesn’t say when you must register. There are a few websites that are free to register with the USDA so that you can know when you can sell a specific food. Some suppliers might not have to purchase a specific dog from you if they are approved to receive an Animal Welfare Approval by the USDA, however. The regulations state that it must be purchased from a supplier that is registered with the USDA and then you don’t need to register with the USDA. But most supplies do not require that you register with the USDA, except for a few that require you register with the USDA for food grown in an animal feed mill that you own or are the owner of. So it’s best to do research and find out if any of the suppliers that are approved to sell food to dogs will have a USDA registration number, as it’s the only thing they have to do.
What do I do if the supplier that’s approved isn’t the same one that registered me?
You can apply for a special registration and make a contract to supply dogs to them. It might be best to obtain a contract and a contract number that you can keep and transfer with your customers to keep track of them. Some suppliers might issue a contract number to supply dogs while others will charge a per-pound fee for a special registration. The more complex the contract, like with food, the less time it takes to process it, making it easier to find a reputable supplier.
Where do I find a good supplier to supply dogs to dogs?
Most dog food suppliers have websites where they sell dogs to dogs. For example, all dog food suppliers have online dog food suppliers. You can even purchase dog food directly at the suppliers themselves. You might be able to find a great list of dog food suppliers on a search engine, like this one: http://dogfoodsuppliers.usda.gov/
Can you sell dog food outside the US?
Yes. Although the federal regulations and regulations for pet food are more confusing and stricter than the regulations for dog food, it is important to research suppliers and register with the USDA before you ship food outside of the US. You can find a list of US suppliers on the USDA website.
Should you use dogs without vaccinations?
