Important message for dog breeders!

From 26 May 2017 new legislation takes effect which requires anyone who is breeding dogs and has puppies born on or after 26 May 2017 to register on the Queensland Dog Breeder Register at www.qdbr.daf.qld.gov.au.

Once registered you will be given a Supply Number which you will need to display when you sell or give away your puppies and this number must be shown when you advertise (in any form).

This new legislation endeavours to combat the growing number of unwanted, abandoned and stray dogs in the community and applies to ALL puppies, including accidental litters.

Failure to register for a Supply Number will result in hefty fines.

If you have a current Breeder Approval or Licence in the City of Logan, you do not need to register.  Logan City Council will register on your behalf and your Approval or Licence number will become your Supply Number.

Residents also have the capacity to make a complaint about welfare concerns and unlawful puppy breeding.

Please visit www.qdbr.daf.qld.gov.au to register or obtain further information including fact sheets about puppy breeding in Queensland.

These cover such things as the number of cats, dogs, livestock or poultry you may keep based on the size of your property. Pet owners must also ensure their animals do not harm humans, the environment or cause nuisance at any time. Be sure to check what animals you can keep on your property using the links below or telephone 3412 5397 as restrictions apply and approvals may be required.
