Important Information for Members that Hold Domestic Animal Business Permits

Thursday, 6 February 2020

Dogs Victoria have only recently become aware that the requirements for the use of source numbers when advertising puppies are slightly different to that which was assumed initially.

• Dogs Victoria registered breeders are classed as “recreational breeders”. When advertising puppies they are required to obtain a source number from the Pet Exchange Register. This can be done online or by downloading a form, completing it and sending it back to the Pet Exchange Register. The source number generated will commence with the letters RB – Recreational Breeder. Follow https://dogsvictoria.org.au/victorian-legislation/government-legislation/3529/pet-exchange-register-information.html for more information on the Pet Exchange Register and to register for a source number. 

• Dogs Victoria members with a Domestic Animal Business permit for Breeding and/or Rearing will have been automatically issued with a source number by their Council when the Pet Exchange Register began operation (mid 2019). This source number will commence with BR – Business Registration. If DV members with a DAB for Breeding/Rearing are advertising puppies, they must use this source number.

• Dogs Victoria members with a Domestic Animal Business permit for activities other than breeding/rearing (eg boarding, grooming, training etc) will have also been issued a source number by their Council in mid 2019 (commencing with BR). However this source number IS NOT the number that you should use when advertising puppies. You should apply to the Pet Exchange Register for another source number as a Dogs Victoria Recreational Breeder, which will commence with RB.

• Dogs Victoria members that have registered as Foster Carers with their Council will automatically be issued with a source number by their Council (commencing with FC – Foster Carer) however this number should not be used to advertise puppies by Dogs Victoria Recreational Breeders – you should use your source number commencing with RB.

• If you need to apply for more than one source number, you will need different email addresses for each Pet Exchange Register source number application. The email address is exclusive to one registration type and hence generation of source number. Different source number type? Different email address required. If you have any questions, please contact Sylvia on spower@dogsvictoria.org.au or 0407 362319

Judges Renewals

Wednesday, 18 December 2019

Members may be aware the December membership renewals have now been issued in the form of an email reminder with a link to the new online membership portal.

Unlike previous years, Judges renewals will not be sent out by post. The new online system is being set up to allow this process to progress and under instruction we have been directed not to issue any paper renewals at this time.

We remind all judges that we will not be removing anyone from the Judges list and will allow sufficient time for all judges to renew their licences.

Any further updates will be sent out via the DV App and posted on our Website Noticeboard.

We thank our members for their patience during this time of change so that we may better serve you and be able to grow and adapt for the future.

Dogs Victoria goes Digital

Thursday, 5 December 2019

Following recent notifications informing our members of the introduction of an online system, we are pleased to announce that Dogs Victoria is now live with this new service.

Many of you may have already received renewal notifications via email which replace the paper renewal forms previously posted out to members.

Further information will be provided shortly to all members as a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document which will be communicated via this App which and also made available on our website.

In addition, our Finance Team are currently transitioning to the new accounting system, Xero. Members are advised there may be an initial delay in processing times whilst we move to this new system which in the long term will create a more streamlined process.

We’re excited to say goodbye to our processing ways and welcome a more efficient system that saves time for both you and us.

Thank you for your continued support.
