Dogs Victoria: Legislation Update!

DOGS VICTORIA CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO REVIEW DOMESTIC ANIMALS AMENDMENT BILL

DOGS Victoria, the peak body representing almost ten thousand owners and breeders of purebred dogs in Victoria, shares the concerns of the Victorian Government, the RSPCA, vets and the community over the operation of unethical, so called ‘puppy farms’ and unregistered, backyard breeders.

We are keen to work with Government and sector bodies in establishing a transparent regulatory framework that meets both community expectations while ensuring the DOGS Victoria registered breeders can continue to breed well adjusted, healthy pups for loving homes.

DOGS Victoria President, Wayne Fleming, says ‘We have voiced our strong concerns over the impact that the current proposed Bill will have for breeders that are our members, who breed to ensure the future of their breeds and because they have a passion for purebred dogs’.

‘The Minister has said that she has heard our concerns, and we are working with the Government, the Department and the RSPCA on establishing a system that will ensure DOGS Victoria breeders can continue to raise pups in their homes and provide loving new owners with healthy, registered pedigree dogs.’

DOGS Victoria’s push for a review into the legislation has resulted in the announcement of a parliamentary committee inquiry, whereby stakeholders, including DOGS Victoria, will be able to highlight concerns over the likely impact of the Bill. The Committee will make their recommendations on the Bill to Parliament on 6 December 2016.

DOGS Victoria members have been active in the campaign for change to the proposed legislation, contacting both politicians and local councils.  At a meeting last night held at the State Dog Centre, KCC Park in Skye, approximately 500 members gathered to express their concerns surrounding the current legislation, reinforcing the need to review the legislation.

DOGS Victoria will continue to work with Government and the sector on establishing a breeder licencing framework that will safeguard the future of pedigree dogs, ensuring that registered DOGS Victoria breeders can continue to meet the highest regulatory standards in terms of health and genetic testing, breed type and temperament whilst meeting a strict code of practice and accountability measures.

Victoria’s second Grand Champion in Track and Search for Gordon Setters!!

On Friday 30th September 2016, we here at GSCV got told that we had another Grand Champion in Track and Search in Victoria!

The first one in Victoria was ‘Mr Darcy’ owned and much loved by Adam, Eddie and Tess Catton but sadly Mr Darcy pasted away earlier this year…..

But we have another to join the ranks of Grand Champion in Track and Search, the multi talented ‘Hunty’ TS. Ch T. Ch Neut Ch. Kentigern Dark Highlander CCD RA ET Bred by Eileen and Stan Slabon and lovingly owned and trained by Kaye Yarnold.

From us here at the Gordon Setter Club of Victoria a big congratulations to Kaye and Hunty on this very special title!!


Kaye and Hunty celebrating their awesome achievement 

Domestic Animals Act Update

Dear Gordon Setter Club of Victoria members,

Below is the latest update from Dogs Victoria, outlining some strategies. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS

Domestic Animals Amendment (Puppy Farm and Pet Shops) Bill 2016

The meeting on Wednesday at Bulla regarding the Domestic Animals Amendment (Puppy Farm and Pet Shops) Bill 2016 was attended by in excess of 500 concerned members. DOGS Victoria President Wayne

Fleming addressed the meeting explaining the conversations and meetings that had taken place since being advised of the Bill on Wednesday October 12. These included a meeting with the Minister’s staff and the Domestic Animal Unit and a conversation yesterday between our President and the Minister for

Agriculture Jaala Pulford MP. This resulted in attendance at the meeting by Government representatives and the Domestic Animal Unit enabling members to ask questions and express their apprehension around the proposed Bill.

While there was some acknowledgement of member concerns, Management Committee believe that it’s imperative that members continue to make their voices heard on this issue.

The most effective way is to contact your local member via phone, email or letter.

To help in expressing your concerns three template letters have been placed on the DOGS Victoria

website. Please be aware that these will be ignored if a number of exactly the same letter are received so please make changes and personalise them to you situation, particularly during the opening paragraph.
