AAPDB members must abide by the enforcable codes of practice which apply in their State or Territory. The following links are provided to help breeders access the appropriate information:
- Australian Animal Welfare Strategy – Review of Existing Animal Welfare Arrangements for the Companion Animals Working Group
In addition Local Government regulations vary between regions. All AAPDB breeders are expected to make themselves aware of the regulations which apply in their State and Local Government area. The AAPDB Inc takes no responsibility for the enforcement of Government Regulations and does not audit this aspect of any AAPDB breeder’s business.
Note that there are no enforceable codes of Code of Practice for dog breeders in Western Australia, Tasmania or the Northern Territory.
