The Queensland Government has laws to promote responsible dog breeding. The legislation became effective from 26 May 2017 and applies to dogs born on or after this date.
The laws require all persons giving away, supplying, selling or advertising dogs or puppies to have a Supply Number that identifies the registered Breeder of that dog.
Supply Numbers can be obtained by registering on the new Queensland Dog Breeder Register. Alternatively, a Supply Number may also be a membership or permit number from an organisation or local government that accredits dog breeders – and that has been approved by the Minister as an “approved entity”.
