Dogs NSW, the peak body for all purebred dogs in New South Wales, has submitted an extensive response to the proposed revision of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Breeding Dogs and Cats) Standards 2017 under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Regulation 2012.

“Dogs NSW supports the government’s initiative to ensure the welfare of all puppies bred in NSW, as well as the revision of the POCTA Standards and Guidelines to ensure that substandard puppy farms are eliminated, and intensive commercial breeding facilities are regulated appropriately. But we do not want responsible hobby breeding to be harmed in any way,” said Brian Crump, spokesperson for Dogs NSW.

Dog with bookNow, in the supposed information era, there is much mis-information about dogs, and yet there is so much to learn.

“While ever I work with dogs I learn something new about them – everyday!” Dr Robert Zammit.

Consequently, we have embarked on the presentation of a series of seminars, gathering experts in the field of canine science, be it behaviour, nutrition, reproduction, genetics and the host of other headings under the husbandry and science of this species.
