DOGS Victoria Announcement about the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic


In ensuring our members are kept up to date we would like to provide the below update in relation to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic. DOGS Victoria is aware of the Corona Virus pandemic which is causing serious consequences in daily lives and serious damage worldwide.

ATTENTION:  Affiliates, Judges, Exhibitors

Everyone who takes part in DOGS Victoria are advised to frequently wash their hand with disinfectant, preferably provided by the Club conducting the event.  The usual interpersonal body contacts, such as shaking hands and any other superficial contact between competitors, exhibitors and Judges, must be avoided and should not be taken as an unfriendly attitude.

DOGS Victoria’s Insurance Broker has advised that no loss of income/cancellation expenses will be covered in respect of the Coronavirus for shows/events.


DOGS Victoria also recommends that Judges should not check the teeth of the dogs by themselves, but instead ask exhibitors for their help.  Judges are also advised to disinfect their hands more frequently.

ATTENTION:  All Members

DOGS Victoria does not plan any general action related to the Corona Virus as the handling of the current situation strictly depends on the local status.  Nevertheless, DOGS Victoria wishes to draw attention to the fact that the local authorities have the right and responsibility to implement local regulations related to public events, whenever needed.


To avoid any inconvenient situations, DOGS Victoria recommends to check the updated respective news sources, via the following links: -

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 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 or 0407 362319
