Australian National Kennel Council Limited has developed co-operation between the 8 Controlling Bodies and made a large contribution towards improving dog showing, breeding and other canine activities in Australia.
Note the ANKC is for pure breed or pedigree dog's only.
The Australian National Kennel Council Limited is the administrative body for pure breed canine affairs in Australia. It does not, however, deal directly with dog exhibitors, breeders or judges. For information pertaining to breeders, clubs or shows, please contact the relevant State or Territory Controlling Body.

The Australian Association Of Pet Dog Breeders Inc, (AAPDB) became an Incorporated Association in 2007. It has National membership and was recognised as a breeder body in NSW in 2013.
In 2010 we were the first dog breeders Association in the world to require all full members to undergo a mandatory , annual, independent, welfare- focused quality assurance Audit, carried out by a licensed Veterinarian.
In June 2019 we became the only breeder Association in Australia which requires our members to have their breeding dogs screened for known genetic defects so that known genetic diseases can be avoided.
Note: This is association is for designer breeds, i.e Cavoodles.
Our breeder members agree to deliver genuinely high welfare standards and place their primary focus on what is best for their dogs. Their stated goal is to breed healthy happy puppies now and for future generations without any compromise in the quest for ribbons, conformity or money. This sets them apart from other dog breeders. We believe such breeders should be rewarded for their stance and we help identify them to their peers, the public and in the market place for their efforts, and achievements in their chosen field.
