ATTENTION: DOGS VICTORIA BREEDERS
We have been notified that some of our members have been targeted for inspections by local laws officers due to advertisements for dog sales posted on online classifieds such as Gumtree, Trading Post, and Facebook Marketplace.
To ensure that our members comply with the legislation, we would like to remind you to confirm your Pet Exchange Register account details and animal registrations with your local council are up-to-date. This will help avoid discrepancies that could trigger an inspection.
As a reminder, the following details must be included in advertisements once the litter is born:

Please refer to our Fact Sheet for more information on advertising animals for sale.
Only members with a current financial Breeders Prefix can register for a Source Number associated with their Dogs Victoria membership. Invalid Source Numbers are reported to the Pet Exchange Register for review. For more information on becoming a Dogs Victoria Breeder, please see our Fact Sheet.
We take our Regulations seriously and routinely take compliance action against members who are in breach, including unregistered breeding. If you would like to report a potential breach, you may send a tip-off to email@example.com.
