Wanting to add a new edition of the four legged kind to your family but not sure where to start view our breed library or take out pet owner quiz to see which breed may suit you and your family’s needs.
One of the best ways to familiarise yourself with the types of breeds is to attend a dog show. What you probably don’t know is that there is a dog show in every state and on most weekends.
Dog shows are a great way to look talk to the actual breeders and ask question regarding the history of the dog, temperaments and suitability of your particular needs and not to mention see a multitude of dogs that perhaps you may not have ever known about.
The best place to start is to go to the Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC) Website here you will find a list of breeds that are listed by groups and events in your state.
State by State Clubs are as follows:
NEW SOUTH WALES

Dogs Victoria http://www.dogsvictoria.org.au/
