Information required on Dogs NSW…….

Dogs NSW have contacted their members to object to an Option proposed in the NSW animal welfare Taskforce 2012, an Option they themselves recommended, being an integral member of that Taskforce.

Click here to understand what’s going on….

To be specific, they support Breeder Licencing for non Dogs NSW members, and want an EXEMPTION for themselves ( cynical us believe this would drive more membership applications, but that’s another matter).

They want “self-regulation”.: From their paper to members:

“Dogs NSW Breeders already have in place a well regulated system which provides for; 

 • Education and Training prior to the granting of a Breeder’s Prefix 
• Proof of Residential Address verifying actual location of approved breeding premises 
• Compulsory Microchipping prior to registration 
• Availability of the Limited Register to restrict breeding of surplus animals 
• A Code of Ethics which sets the highest standards in breeding practises and commits all Registered Breeders 
to compliance with all relevant legislation 
• A regulated investigation and inquiry program to deal with breaches of our Code 
• A traceable Membership Number which can be used in puppy advertisements 
The  Taskforce  proposal  has  the  potential  to  add  a  further  tier  of  registration  on  Dogs  NSW  Breeders 
which would  undoubtedly bring with it unnecessary and unjustifiable further regulation and costs. Dogs 
NSW Members need to be one voice in opposing it. “

DRP Comment:

We think this is as good a time as any to reveal cracks in their “well regulated system” and breaches of their Code, and breaches of their “regulated investigation program” on breaches of their code,  which we are told that they often ignore.

Action you can take: 

If you have information, direct experience, or evidence, please post your story in the comments section below. We will never reveal your name or email details – all is confidential. Please, only FACTS and information, no exaggerations! We don’t want a legal letter from Dogs NSW ……..

And if they ARE squeaky clean, then that’s OK too!

    Dogs QLD was also advertising their “Self Regulation” “strict process” that Dogs QLD on their website Sept 2011. Turns out that portions of the “self regulation” processes advertised for potential purchasers of Dogs from DogsQLD breeders were “not been finalised” and “yet to occur”.

    Hi Rachael,
    In response to your email below, I provide the following comments:
    Regarding the Breeder Accreditation process, this scheme has only been introduced in the last 12 months. It was initially intended to have a “Site Visit” as part of this scheme but as yet all details have not been finalised, including the criteria. As a result, there have been no site visits occur yet, we just have the provision for it in the not too distant future.
    In relation to Vet Checks, we have a form that is downloaded when breeders apply for accreditation that is completed by their vet and signed off by them as a reference for the breeder stating they have known them for a period and vouch for their practices to the best of their knowledge. Also, we ask breeders to state and provide copies of what hereditary tests they carry out for their pups and also their sire and dam for each litter – note that there are differences in requirements for different breeds.
    Our guidelines regarding litters state that bitches must be 12 months old before they can have their first litter and this is enforced when we become aware and action is taken against any breeder that breaches it. The only other stipulation is that bitches cannot have more than 2 litters in an 18 month period and this too is enforced. The Code of Ethics is the first section of our Rules document, which can be downloaded direct from our website, titled “CCC(Q) Rules & Code of Ethics March 2010”. Please click here to be taken to that web page: http://www.dogsqueensland.org.au/New-Member-Information.aspx.
    I hope this helps.

    Hello,
    If I could have some further clarification please on you breeder accreditation scheme.
    I note that you have a scheme that breeders registered with you have to achieve. Part of that accreditation process appears to be having a ‘site visitor’ visit the premises. What is the ‘strict criteria’ for passing this inspection? Please send me the criteria.
    Also, do you have a set criteria for passing the vet check too? If so please supply that to me also.
    Your guidelines for breeders also discusses the minimum age for a Bitch to have her first litter as being 12 months. Do you enforce this? Also, the guidelines infer that there should be a resting period between Litters. What do you recommend? Do you enforce this?
    What is your ‘code of ethics’ that is required to be complied with as stated on the registration form? Please send me a copy of that.
    I want to really be confident that I am making a well informed choices. As you are the ‘guardians of our wonderful registered pedigree dogs’, I felt it best for me to really understand what the expectations are when going to look at the puppies and dogs available by breeders registered by Dogs Queensland.
    Thank you for your time. I eagerly await the answers to my questions.

    Kind Regards

    The row of baguette cut diamonds looks specifically impressive inside a platinum placing.

    Conflict diamonds are sometimes called blood diamonds, to
    represent the lives lost in pursuit of those shiny gemstones.
    For instance, 900 Platinum means that the piece is 90% platinum and 10%
    other metals.
