Welcome to the Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders Incorporated.
ETHICAL RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS OF HEALTHY FAMILY PETS
AAPDB Inc. was formed so dedicated pet dog breeders who are committed to breeding happy, healthy pets with great temperaments could come together and strive for excellence. Some of our breeders breed purebred dogs, some breed crossbreds and some are developing new breeds not yet recognised in the purebred dog world.
To become a full member of the AAPDB, breeders undergo an independent audit conducted and certified by a practising veterinarian. Dog welfare, breeding facilities, breeding practises, health and documentation are among the areas covered in the audit.
AAPDB's primary goal is to deliver the public a predictable puppy which has been bred with care and knowledge. AAPDB subscribes to a lifetime view for animals bred with respect to welfare, health and happiness for puppies and their parents alike.
You can join the owners' community which will give you access to the owners forum, and the opportunity to meet up with other puppy owners for fun and socialisation.
The AAPDB Inc. has two levels of membership which represent two levels of confidence for prospective owners:
Probationary Member (Level 1)
Probationary Members agree to abide by the ethics of the AAPDB. They receive a copy of the breeders' manual which outlines the standards an AAPDB member is expected to meet. They also have a copy of the AAPDB Inc Audit which must be passed if they are to proceed to Full Membership.
All Probationary Members must proceed to Full Membership within 12 months of joining the Association.
Full Member (Level 2)
A Full Member has undergone and passed the AAPDB Inc Audit, which is independently conducted by a practising veterinarian. This audit covers all aspects of their dog breeding enterprise and must be undertaken annually to maintain Full Member status.
