S07E01 Puppy Farming 19/02/2009 Matt Allwright and Dan Penteado are hunting and confronting more rogues. They investigate pet shops and dog breeders who sell sick puppies. The Rogue Traders team go undercover to buy three puppies from establishments which have been reported to the RSPCA or trading standards. One of the puppies cost 350 pounds and was bought as a pedigree King Charles spaniel. But within a few days it falls ill with Parvo virus, a severe intestinal infection, and has to be put down. Matt and the team reveal that in many cases, the paperwork is inadequate to prove a puppy's pedigree, or that it has been properly vaccinated. One of the dogs purchased by the Rogue Traders team had a docked tail, a procedure which was made illegal in England, Scotland and Wales in 2007. When Matt confronts one puppy farm, the breeder attempts to hold the team captive. It takes a visit by the police to get them released.

Then there's the airport meet and greet company who promise to look after your car while you go on holiday, but drive it like they've been watching too much Top Gear and leave it unsecured on an industrial estate. And when Matt catches up with them, the company boss reveals more than most, giving Matt the Full Monty..

Plus, a TV aerial fitter uses dirty tactics to get a customer to buy a new aerial and television they don't need, but Matt has a neat trick up his sleeve to catch the rogues red-handed. In Bradford, they get a pump-action super-soaking of lies from a dodgy salesman who tries to hoodwink them into parting with thousands of pounds for a roof-sealing product they just do not need. After the company gives the same pack of lies at a house in Manchester, it is time for Matt to confront them. Over in Great Yarmouth, a patio-cleaning rogue has masterminded a corner-cutting plan just to rip the team off.
