About Us

Thankyou for visiting Puppies Downunder

We are a family owned commercial dog breeder situated near Morwell in Victoria with over 45 years of experience in raising, breeding and training dogs.

We are professional and ethical breeders who have the knowledge and are greatly resourced  to care, train and socialise our animals. 

As ethical breeders, our core values ensure we provide enrichment, love and care for all our animals.


Concern for the health and well-being of our animals is paramount and will always be chosen before profits

 

We work closely with Animal Welfare Victoria, our Local Council Latrobe City Shire and the RSPCA to ensure the care of our animals is to the highest of ethical standards at all times.  

Our animals are our passion and we do not do this as a part time exercise like many micro-breeders.


We dedicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to each and every one of our animals.

We strongly advise purchasers to buy from specialist dog breeders and not from part-time breeders who allow their dogs to whelp unsupervised.

We are trusted experts in our field and with over 45 years of experience, we know dogs!

We have 15 employees who are well trained and experienced, and they each ensure our dogs receive fulfilling experiences and an excellent quality of life.

​We have access to extensive bloodlines as our male and female dogs have been carefully selected 45 years for health, intelligence, temperament and hypoallergenic qualities.

They have been chosen because they possess the best qualities of their breed.

Our Mission is to breed for excellence in Health, Intelligence, Temperament and Hypo-Allergenic qualities.

As responsible and ethical breeders, we provide our customers with ongoing advice and support for the LIFETIME of their puppy.

Please take some time to explore our website, if you have any further questions please contact us.​

Thankyou

Charlie and Sharron Maddaluno

Leaders in Ethical Dog Breeding

Puppies Downunder are one of very few commercial dog breeders that have been approved by the Minister of Agriculture to breed dogs due to our highly professional and ethical standards.

 

Our approval to breed by the Minister of Agriculture MP was based on the recommendation from Animal Welfare Victoria's Chief  Veterinary Officer.

We are now the leaders in this industry and have the highest ethical standards in the world!​

As a Commercial Dog Breeder, we must receive approval from the Chief Veterinary Office of Victoria in order to operate and are under one of Australia’s toughest animal welfare reforms!

 

This world-first law in Victoria puts an end to animal cruelty and imposes some of the toughest restrictions ever seen on animal welfare.

Puppies Downunder works closely with the Minister of Agriculture and Animal Welfare Victoria to ensure full ongoing compliance with the Code of Practice for the Operation of Breeding and Rearing Business 2018.

As a Commercial breeder we must comply with the following requirements:

- Restrict numbers to no more than 50 fertile females


- Register with the local council as a domestic animal business


- Assist welfare officers to audit the premises upon request


- Educate and train staff and volunteers


- Ensure staff have appropriate qualifications


- Maintain a Health management plan for each breed of dog


- Maintain a Retirement plan for each dog


- Implement an exercise, enrichment, socialising and handling policy.

Our Breeding Facility

Our facility is regularly audited by our local council Latrobe City and Animal Welfare Victoria to ensure we are providing only the highest ethical standards to our animals. 


This is something that we pride ourselves on and as previously mentioned we have the highest ethical standards worldwide.


Whilst we would prefer to have our puppies and their parents live in our home with beds and linen, the requirements of the State Government require us to home them in pens.  

 

The majority of authorities state that all animal owners should crate train their puppies when they bring them home which is the same as keeping the animal in a pen.
 

We have recently completed exciting renovations throughout our facility which includes a new whelping and rearing facility as well as an on site veterinary room, so that our animals are provided with only the best of care.

Why choose your puppy from Puppies Downunder?

We have been approved by the Victorian Minister for Agriculture to breed due to our highly professional and ethical standards.

Our approval to breed by the Victorian Minister for Agriculture the Hon Mary-Anne Thomas MP was based on the recommendation from Animal Welfare Victoria's Chief Veterinary Officer.

We provide after-sales support that is world-class for the lifetime of your puppy.

We are greatly resourced to care, train and socialise our animals and work closely with Animal Welfare Victoria and the RSPCA to ensure the care of our animals is to the highest of standards at all times.

 

We are now the leaders in this industry and have the highest ethical standards in the world!​

We are very well experienced second generation dog breeders that have been breeding puppies for health, intelligence, temperament and hypoallergenic qualities for over 45 years. 

We carefully select our parents to ensure that our puppies are suitable for all types of families, first time pet owners, seniors and those looking for an assistance dog for Autism, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and various other disabilities and mental health conditions.

We encourage you to meet the parents of your puppy and see where your puppy was born.

 

As responsible breeders we provide Genetic and Health Guarantees for every puppy as well as 6 weeks Free Pet Insurance.
