Animal breeding

Deciding to breed your cat or dog is a big decision. If you breed cats or dogs without approval, you may be fined.

Dogs

The Queensland Government introduced laws in 2017 to promote responsible breeding of dogs. These laws apply to dogs born on or after 26 May 2017.

Every registered breeder needs a unique identification number called a supply number. This number can trace puppies back to the breeder if needed. You must display a supply number when advertising, selling or giving away a dog.

To apply for a supply number, please visit Queensland dog breeders’ register.

To breed dogs in Logan City, you need approval from us. To apply for approval, you will need to:

  • get a supply number from Queensland dog breeders 
  • make sure your dogs are registered with us.

To report concerns about puppies that are being advertised, sold or given away without a supply number, please visit Queensland dog breeders’ register.

For more information about changes to breeding laws, please visit Department of Agriculture and Fisheries or call them on 132 523.
