We’ve been huge opponents of commercial puppy farms or any form of unregulated dog breeding in Australia for over a decade. Many of our own dogs were rescues or surrenders from owners who unknowingly purchased from pet stores (most of whom purchase these puppies from puppy farms).
Dennis Napthine whilst being a vet did almost nothing to curb the growth of puppy farms. Luckily for us the Andrew’s government has back their promised of stopping farms by fast tracking the new legislation in late 2014. We’re seeing slow but steady changes in 2015 and hopefully things speed up as most of the legislation deadline are in 2020.
We support registered dog breeders and have many who purchased our dog beds in the past year. Buy from registered breeders and not pet stores/puppy farms!
