Dogs Victoria manages dog sports and competition within the state and promotes sustainable and ethical breeding of pure bred dogs and maintains the pure breed dog registry.

Dogs Victoria (Victorian Canine Association) is the peak body representing owners and breeders of purebred dogs in Victoria and has a history dating back to 1877. More than 280 individual clubs representing a single breed, a group of breeds or all breeds are affiliated with Dogs Victoria.

Our core purpose is to promote and protect purebred dogs, however we offer inclusive activities for crossbred dogs to join in activities such as agility and obedience.

The main activities of Dogs Victoria include:
Formal registration of purebred dogs and pups/litters.
Representation of the viewpoints of members to the Victorian and local governments, and through the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) to the federal government.

Promotion of purebred dogs through a monthly magazine, website and community promotions incorporating our 280 affiliated clubs.
Licencing and regulating dog-based events.
Promoting excellence in dog behaviour, health, companionship, work, community acceptance
