Registered Dog Breeders Australia
I have noticed that there seems to be some confusion among some members of the public about what or who are "registered dog breeders" in Australia.
In relatively recent times, various new associations etc. have commenced and which allows for their members to become registered dog breeders. Each of these different organizations have set varying requirements in order to be registered as a dog breeder with them.
However, in NSW, the long-standing organization for registered dog breeders in NSW is Dogs NSW, which was previously known as the Royal NSW Canine Council.
Dogs NSW is a registered member of the Australian national body for registered breeders, that is, the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC). Each State of Australia have their own State body that re also members of the ANKC.
The ANKC and State members have set a range of rules, regulations, and policies in relation to the breeding of dogs in Australia, mainly centred around purebred breeds.
Some advertising has been indicating that you can have dual registered dogs. That is, a dog registered with two different organisations.
It is my understanding that dogs registered in NSW through Dogs NSW and the ANKC are not to be registered with any other similar body. This is not to be confused with the having your dog registered with your local Council for owner identification purposes.
Hence, I would question any claims that dogs are or can be "dual-registered" with a ANKC member and another body or organisation.
