ANKC Still 3m09sJoin the movement to keep healthy puppies in homes, where they belong.


The Australian National Kennel Council, the peak body for responsible and ethical breeders in Australia, has launched a public and breeder education movement to complement the RSPCA and Australian Veterinary Association’s joint initiative, Love is Blind, to raise awareness of the animal welfare problems caused by exaggerated physical features and how these problems can be prevented.

“Love is blind, except, it doesn’t have to be,” said Hugh Gent OAM, President of the ANKC. “The ANKC considers the health and physical welfare of dogs of prime importance and does not support the breeding of dogs with exaggerated features to meet a puppy buyer demand for a certain look.”

All Clubs are reminded that it is the Committees responsibility to ensure that Shows/Trials are conducted in a safe environment for both the exhibitors and the public. Clubs need to be familiar with Dogs NSW Regulations Part II, Section 9 - Extreme Weather & Safety Guidelines. It is very important for Clubs to conduct a site assessment of the area on which the Show/Trial is being conducted prior to event commencement to ensure that there are no risks evident, such but not limited to, uneven ground in pedestrian traffic areas or exhibition areas, lengthy or wet grass, ring ropes or uncovered electrical cords on the grounds, as these are a trip hazard which may result in an injury to a person attending the Show/Trial. 

Members are advised that there have been numerous changes to the Dogs NSW Regulations;

Part II Show Section 6, 6.1
Part II Show Section 6, 6.4
Part II Show Section 10, 10.13
Part XII Interpretation "Open Show"
