The list below contains Greyhound breeders who are registered with Responsible Pet Breeders Australia. RPBA has a set of strict Code of Ethics and standards that all our registered breeders must adhere to, ensuring the health and well-being of the animals they breed. When you buy a Greyhound puppy from a registered breeder, you’re not just buying a puppy. You’re also gaining a resource and ally in your pet ownership journey. Reputable breeders offer lifelong support for you and your dog.
One of the most significant advantages of purchasing a Greyhound puppy from a registered breeder is the guarantee of the puppy’s health. Reputable breeders conduct various health tests on the parent dogs to ensure that they are free from hereditary diseases, which could otherwise be passed down to the puppies.
Reputable Greyhound breeders prioritise breeding dogs with good temperaments. This is especially important with Greyhounds, a breed known for their calm and gentle nature. Unregistered or irresponsible breeders may not take this into account, leading to puppies with unpredictable or undesirable temperaments that compromise the dog’s quality of life.
Choosing to buy from a registered breeder also has wider ethical implications. Supporting reputable breeders who prioritise the health and well-being of their dogs contributes to the overall demand for responsibly bred dogs.
