Are we ethical breeders?
As a member of the Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders (AAPDB) we are committed breeders who care for and love dogs. The AAPDB is the only breeding association in the world that requires its members to undertake an annual animal focused, quality assurance welfare Audit carried out by an independent practising Veterinarian.
They are also the only Breeding Association that requires all members to complete a full genetic screen on all breeding dogs for all testable genetically inherited diseases.
My dogs are part of the family, live indoors and out, receive premium veterinary care as well as high quality food, treats and supplements. They all receive lots of love and attention and as a result are all happy, healthy individuals!
Whelping happens inside the home where Mum and pups can be comfortable and well supervised 24/7. Pups first venture outside at about 4-5 weeks old, at this stage they are starting to look for more stimulation. They get to run around on the grass in a playpen and sniff noses with the other dogs. At about 6 weeks of age they are ready to explore the whole backyard and boy do they love that!
