Privacy policy: 

When you join the AAPDB as a Probationary member your first name, breeder identification number, phone number and local government area will be published on the AAPDB web site automatically. 

This is done in order to allow members of the public to check that a person claiming to be a member is in fact currently registered with the AAPDB.   

When you become a Full member you have the opportunity to advertise your contact details (and web site address if you have one) but you can choose to continue with minimal contact information if you wish. No other details will be provided to anyone without your written approval. Membership details will only be available to the Executive Committee Members of the AAPDB (President, Compliance Officer, Treasurer and Secretary) 

However you must be aware that each state Government has requirements for information to be made available to specific individuals or organisations if the AAPDB is an Approved Entity in that State. 

In Queensland approved entities are required to provide information to:

  • Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, in order to perform its functions under this Act and the Animal Care and Protection Act 2001 (ACPA); 

And, on request to:

  • RSPCA  in order to perform its functions under the ACPA; 
  • Local government, in order to perform functions under this Act or the ACPA; 
  • A police officer who is monitoring or enforcing compliance with this Act or ACPA or performing functions in relation to an animal or an animal welfare offence; and 
  • An authorised officer under the Racing Integrity Act 2016 who is performing functions in relation to an animal or an animal welfare offence. 

Before you proceed with your membership you must acknowledge that you have read this information and that you agree to our privacy policy. 

  • I have read Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders Privacy policy and agree to allowing the information I provide to regulatory authorities as required by the legislation in each State or Territory Jurisdiction
