What are the improvements?
Commencing Friday July 30th, 2021, Members can log into the ANKC Database Member Portal and view a list of dogs currently registered in their name. If a dog listed is deceased, you can select the dog and mark it as deceased. This will update the records in the database as deceased and remove the dog from the list of animals owned by you.
Why did we make the change?
DOGS NSW together with the ANKC, is currently working at replacing the existing database. In preparation for the transfer of data, we are actively creating ways to help clean existing data.
Is there a cost to change a record?
There is NO charge to change the record of your dog to deceased. The feature is free of charge.
What you need to do
The instructions on how to log in and update the status of your dogs owned can be found here
What if I have dogs listed that I have transferred to new Owners?
In the coming months, Members will have access to a new feature in the portal with the ability to transfer dogs listed in their name that have been on sold to new Owners prior to March 2020. Further information in relation to dogs transferred after March 2020 will be advised in due course.

From Sydney Dog Lovers Show - Important Announcement
We’re sending out our warmest thoughts wherever you are and hope that you and your best friends are doing OK despite the challenges many of us are facing throughout Australia.
We were confident that re-scheduling our Sydney Dog Lovers Show to mid-September would provide enough time for the situation to subside. But sadly it’s only getting worse and unlikely that the NSW State government will allow large indoor events like ours to run in Sydney this year.
So it’s devastating to announce that we have no other choice but to reschedule the show to next year and our new dates will be Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August 2022 at the Sydney Showground.
It was an extremely difficult decision but ultimately the health and safety of everyone involved and limiting the potential threat of spreading the virus was the most important consideration.
As the leading dog-dedicated festival in Sydney, we are deeply aware of the important role we play in showcasing this wonderful industry, educating dog owners and the free marketing opportunities we provide for breed clubs, adoption groups and charities. So we will do absolutely everything we possibly can to survive to ensure we can rebound next year when hopefully the world is in better shape.
Our team is grateful for the understanding, kindness and unwavering support our dog-loving community has always shown during these times and promise to reward this support with the most memorable show ever in 2022.
In the meantime, please support all our wonderful Exhibitors and Sponsors who have stuck by us (listed on our website) as they have missed the opportunity to meet thousands of fabulous dog lovers again this year (that’s you!).
