Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. In order to deduct the expense it must be a for profit business. Deductible business expenses must be ordinary and necessary in carrying on a trade or business.

So if it were in conjunction with a kennel, showing and breeding, that would be considered a for profit business?

Thank you for your help.
