Welcome to the Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders Inc (AAPDB)
Responsible Ethical Breeders Of Healthy Family Pets
The AAPDB upholds an ethical, welfare centred code of practice for all our veterinarian approved breeders.
The AAPDB members are responsible both for animal welfare and lifetime re-homing programs.
The AAPDB promotes “Healthy Pets”, and a positive approach to hybrid and genetically diverse pure bred dogs.
The Australian Association Of Pet Dog Breeders Inc or AAPDB, is the only cross breeding association that is a recognised breeder body approved under clause 3(1) of the Companion Animals regulation 2008. please follow the link if you would like a list of other recognised breeder associations, although not on this list, Dogs NSW is included in this regulation and is included in the legislation.
Members of the AAPDB are committed breeders who care for and love dogs. They have proven this commitment by joining the only breeding association in the world, that requires its members to undertake an annual animal focused, quality assurance welfare Audit carried out by an independent practising Veterinarian.
Proudly, We are currently the only recognised Breeding Association that requires its members to undertake these thorough checks, so you can have peace of mind that your dog has come from a breeder who is proud of their dogs’ welfare and open to scrutiny.
Proudly We are the only recognised Breeding Association that offers follow up care, rehoming policies and health guarantees with our puppies.
Proudly, We are the only recognised Breeding Association that requires all members to complete at a minimum Full Breed Specific Genetic screen on all breeding dogs for all testable genetically inherited diseases relevant to each and every particular breed of dog.
AAPDB members fulfil this commitment to their dogs by following standards for breeding and sale to which all members are obliged to adhere. The primary focus of members is to breed healthy, happy family pets and advise prospective owners on what would make the most suitable pets for their circumstances.
The AAPDB breeders encourage responsible pet ownership by providing appropriate information about the dogs they breed, ensuring that new pet owners are educated regarding their responsibilities.
