Queensland Dog Breeder Register - Queensland


The Queensland Government has introduced new laws to promote responsible dog breeding. The legislation came into effect on 26 May 2017 and applies only to dogs born on or after this date.

The laws require all persons giving away, supplying, selling or advertising dogs or puppies to have a supply number that identifies the registered breeder of the dog.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.


Primary producers that breed working dogs do not have to register as breeders, as long as they supply all of the dogs they breed to other primary producers as working dogs. However, primary producers must register as a breeder if they supply any dogs for purposes other than as working dogs.

Interstate and overseas breeders only need a Supply Number when the transaction occurs in Queensland. If the transaction occurs outside our borders and the dog is transported to Queensland afterwards, the Queensland legislation does not apply.



Registration is valid for 12 months, which is required to be reviewed each year.
