We welcome pure and mix breed breeders, but they must be able to explain their breeding goals and designs.
We will not accept breeders that have just thrown together with random breeds with no thought into the necessity, health and behavioural implications from the breed.
We expect our breeders to not only have yearly vet audits but at that time to have each and every individual breeding dog health checked with a clean bill of health or action sheet with follow up implemented.
At any time if the breeder ceases to comply with the organization's code they will have their membership revoked.
We will offer mentoring where required, advice, educational platforms and community support.
Unlike other organizations we won't dictate how you run your business we do expect you however to follow DPI regulation and have the best standards and always put money back into the dogs.
We also expect our members to co-operate with the RSPCA and AWL as required*.
Where able our members are to assist in the rehoming of dogs in need and advertise for their local rescue organisation on their social media accounts or websites or undertake their own rescue pledge.
