State Government’s Dog Breeder legislation

The State Government’s Dog Breeder legislation came into effect on the 26 May 2017.  The new laws only apply to dogs born on or after 26 May 2017 therefore dogs born before this date are not affected.

The community needs to be aware that anyone with a female dog that has a litter is now classed as a breeder.  A Supply Number must be obtained from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) within 28 days of the litter being born. You can register for free online at Alternatively, you can call 13 25 23 to register over the phone or request a hard copy application form. Registration is a quick and simple process.

All persons giving away, supplying, selling or advertising dogs or puppies must have a Supply Number that identifies the registered breeder of that dog.  This Supply Number must be included in any advertising or promotional information associated with giving away, supplying or selling a dog born after the 26 May 2017.

It is important that if you suspect a breeder is unregistered or a supply number is invalid, or if you have other concerns about the supply of a dog, it can be reported via the Queensland Dog Breeder Register at The register will automatically refer your concern to the relevant agency for action.
