USDA licensed Puppy mills

State vs USDA 

In Iowa there are 2 different definitions for "licensed commercial breeders".
  1. State-licensed commercial breeders are those breeders who keep more than 3 intact breeding dogs, any combination of males and females, and sell the offspring. These breeders sell their puppies directly to the public, through ads, the internet, etc.
  2. USDA Class A licensed commercial breeders are those breeders who can also sell puppies wholesale through a pet store or a broker or dealer (Class B USDA-license holder). The broker/dealer then sells the puppies to another distributor such as Hunte Corporation based in Goodman, Missouri, or to a pet store such as Petland.
