Greyhound Breeder Registration - New South Wales


You will need this registration if you intend to work as a registered breeder. There are two types of breeder registrations:

  • a Breeder - Owner
  • a Breeder - Whelper.

A Breeder - Owner can arrange for the service or artificial insemination of a dam, but you must be registered as a Breeder - Whelper if you want to manage the whelping or care for pups before they are old enough to leave the dam (usually at 14 -16 weeks).
