There are many myths about the nutritional requirements of dogs. This talk will address the feeding behaviours of dogs, including their digestive capability and nutritional needs for general health and wellbeing. This will follow into a discussion to uncover the truth behind some common myths surrounding nutrition.

GSDPurebred dogs have made vast contributions to society throughout history. They have served in a variety of working roles, often putting their lives on the line to protect, and provide companionship and many health benefits to people of all ages.

As the peak body for all purebred dogs in NSW, Dogs NSW celebrates these amazing and loyal companion animals on National Purebred Dog Day on May 1.

“On this special day, we wish to highlight and celebrate the myriad of ways that purebred dogs enrich the lives of so many throughout society,” said Lynette Brown, President of Dogs NSW.

Dogs NSW is the controlling body for all aspects and disciplines of purebred, pedigreed dog breeding and exhibiting in NSW, and is the member body of the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC).

Purebred dogs work and provide an invaluable contribution as service, police and military dogs, as well as in conservation, search and rescue, hunting and herding, and more – and always, as companions and guardians of the family home.



Ask the Breeder TileThe Sydney Dog Lovers Show is a fabulous event on the August calendar, which Dogs NSW supports every year.

As Dogs NSW and its members work closely with the organisers, they have kindly permitted Dogs NSW an extra stand, 'Ask the Breeder,' in order to promote our breeders and their purebred dogs.

The stand will be in close proximity to the Dogs NSW Information stand, however, we do need Dogs NSW members/ breeders and their dogs to come to the stand and talk to the attending public about their breed and the benefits of purchasing a purebred puppy through a Dogs NSW member.

Talks will be limited to a maximum of 15 minutes and should cover your own experience as a breeder, a brief description of your breed, including temperament, training and care requirements; what you provide in ongoing care, questions to ask a breeder and what you ask of them. At the conclusion, if there is time left over you can take questions as well as meet the breed sessions with your dog. Should you wish to do so, you can also bring along your own business cards or your breed club's details as handouts. We also ask that anyone who is speaking with the public, to please have their dog with them. A judging table will be provided for your dog to stand on.
