OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
For a DOGS Victoria breeder there are long nights awaiting their birth, being there as they make their way into the world, watching and caring for those beautiful squirming puppies as they take their first steps and open their eyes, and finally helping them venture into their brave new world under the guidance of loving new families.
For most DOGS Victoria registered breeders, this journey will only ever be done in the safety and warmth of their homes, where their pregnant girl will be patted, reassured and cared for around the clock. Work duties are put on hold and social events go unattended, as the number one priority right now is that of mother dog and her precious babies.
HEALTH TESTING & PAPERWORK
DOGS Victoria and their members pride themselves as a protector when it comes to pure-bred dogs and their breed of choice. They emphasis breed health, soundness of body and temperament, suitability of form and function, while displaying the beauty of the many breeds available within Australia.
DOGS Victoria registered breeders do not breed primarily to make a profit. Rather, a DOGS Victoria registered breeder will happily pour their life savings into the pursuit of the betterment of their chosen breed, through the importation of new bloodlines and carefully considered breeding plans, expensive and important health testing.
PUPPY FARMERS MAKE OUR BLOOD BOIL!
We operate with a strict code of conduct as registred ethical breeders. Dogs Victoria and their collective membership wholeheartedly support the idea of banning “puppy farms”.
WE LOVE AND CARE FOR OUR PUPPIES
Our dogs are household pets first, breeding dogs second. They sleep on beds and couches, and whelp their litters in spare bedrooms and lounge rooms under the watchful eyes of their breeder. Puppies reared by registered breeders are raised to the sights and sounds common to every household – that’s what makes a puppy so well socialised and allows them to develop into a well-adjusted dog.
The majority of us breed rarely. Perhaps once or twice a year. Many may only breed a litter once every few years.
