Promoting responsible dog ownership
Dogs West - the Canine Association of WA - is an important part of the community. We provide a range of services and activities to enable dog owners to better understand and appreciate the enormous potential their best friend has to offer.
Importantly, Dogs West works with the community to give advice on the care and welfare of a dog. We believe all dogs deserve responsible and caring owners.
The main purpose of our Association is to promote sound breeding and the protection of pure bred dogs. To this end, there are many regulations concerning the breeding and registration of puppies.
Many competitions are held to give breeders the chance to have qualified people pass opinion on their dogs and thus assist them to maintain sound, quality dogs.
The responsibility of breeding good-quality dogs that are sound in mind and body, is one that breeders take very seriously. Many hours are spent, reviewing pedigrees and assessing dogs before decisions are made for matings, and in the selection of puppies for breeding.
Our Association has the role of controlling the breeding of puppies by promoting a Code of Ethics and putting other checks in place.
Come to events on our grounds. Visitors are always welcome and entry is free.
