The Master Dog Breeders and Associates was established in 2004
It is a group servicing, representing and uniting a wide range of canine enthusiasts, including purebred dog breeders, and responsible companion dog owners.
Membership is voluntary and is open to members of the public from all countries with an interest in dog breeding, welfare, ownership or care.
We provide services to members which include breeding related information (responsible breeding, the care and welfare of dogs and breeding animals and their offspring, registries and advocacy). We screen our members before they are accepted for membership and have several methods in place to ensure our systems which provide third party accountability and policing of our codes are enforced.
Our members agree to adhere to, state and local legislation and MDBA codes and rules including Prevention of Cruelty of Animals Act and the Domestic Animals Acts. To gain acceptance members must pass scrutiny on their philosophies and goals, before they become members and they operate under a strict system which monitors their practices. We also have a complaints procedure and all breaches of our code are dealt with via our disciplinary policies and procedures
The educational program is an in-depth educational framework that has been tailored exclusively for dog breeders, dog welfare, rescue and/or re-homing organisations and pet dog owners. It also caters as preliminary short courses for those interested in a career in or already employed in pet care.
The coursework was developed with input from the most knowledgeable professionals in the pet-care industry.
