This is what they say:


We here at Puppy Palace "DO NOT" support PUPPY FARMS "substandard breeders"! If we did we would not have been in business since January 1999. We care about the health and welfare of all of our puppies and work closely in conjunction with My Pets Vet at Bald Hills.  Our shop does not have nor do we support the "doggy in the window" (Impulse buying), so we are located in an industrial area instead of a shopping centre.  Our customers have to source us via the internet.
When selling a puppy we will spend alot of time with a potential new puppy owner, we educate them and explain how to puppy train a new puppy and how to "puppy proof", the home so that they do not get upset with their new family member.  We do this even if the pup is purchased from another shop, the RSPCA or another breeder as we want our customers properly "puppy" educated.  We pride ourselves on the fact that we are specialists in our field. We have over 100 individual breeders registered with us so that there is NO over breeding of a particular dog.
The term "Puppy farm" has been hijacked by activists to shake confidence in pet shops and discourage people from owning the dog that they choose.  The actual definition of "puppy farm" is a description of a substandard breeding operation with poor hygiene,  poor socialisation, and poor management of their breeding stock which can be up to 100 or more breeding bitches.  The real term that is now used is "SUBSTANDARD BREEDERS".
Any form of breeder can come under this description. Any of these would, and should, be closed by the RSPCA and local councils as soon as possible.
The more Substandard Breeders that get shut down is better for the regulated pet industry members like ourselves; we would not allow our breeders to breed our lovely pups in those kinds of disgusting conditions.
Information from people like the RSPCA and the Media about, Puppy Factories is disappointing for the regulated pet industry like us. Inaccurate information like "50% of all puppies come from Puppy Factories" end up in pet shops (which is NOT true). However, no mention of the 95% of puppies  are NOT sold through Pet Shops, i.e. Internet, Trading Post, newspapers,  etc. the RSPCA must realise that without a regulated pet shop industry the welfare of the animals would be 100% worse.  It is very frustrating for the ethical pet shop owners like ourselves, when such a major effort is made by us and there is no acknowledgement of our good work. (alot of this information had been obtained from the PIAA, of which we are a member.
As we all know we are only allowed up to 2 dogs in a residential yard, when we want to breed more dogs we have to create a larger allotment or farm environment.  Most large breeders whether registered breeders or unregistered breeders, and all kennels, have to be checked regularly by their local government and/or usually require yearly renewable breeders permit with their local government.
Our bigger breeders only have about 15 breeding bitches (not up to 100 like the "substandard breeders", we are seeing on the TV),  we also occasionally get our registered pups from CCC registered breeders. Some of these may also breed up to 15 +  bitches.
We also get pups from people like you and me that may have a couple of dogs that may have puppies. The puppies we receive into store are also generally fed on Advance (the best nutrition a pup can get - once pups are booked in with us we tell out clients to buy the advance rehydratable or growth biscuits).  They are well looked after (many are raised in the breeders homes).  We just breed what the customer is looking for, which are the cross breeds and a few select pure breeds. CCC registered breeders WILL NOT breed the cross dogs as these cannot be shown in the dog show rings.
We are also proudly a member of The Pet Industry Association of Australia.
"Data provided clearly shows that most pets from SUBSTANDARD breeders are sold through the internet and classifieds".
All our breeders are required to fill out statutory declarations giving all their own details as well as the details of the parents of the pups, and the pups themselves.
We also defiantly agree that some breeders are disgusting in their breeding habits and feel that it is also the local councils that collect rates and charge the breeders for having breeding dogs in their respective council shire should  control and inspect and regulate those breeders, and the conditions that their dogs are kept in. The Councils should report those breeders who are doing the industry damage.
We will even refer customers to the RSPCA to source a new family member, however, some have young children and want to start with a puppy so they will know the temperament of the dog etc.  In most cases the customer returns to us because the RSPCA does not have any pups for sale.



Complete crap, don't you think?

If anyone lives near this "palace" please go there and ask a few questions. If you see cruelty or sick puppies, film it.

No reputable breeder would want to sell their puppys to a pet shop anyway. Reputable breeders go through a lot of processes before they let you buy a puppy from them. They just don't sell it to the first person that wants to buy it.

Hypothetically, even if the puppys in pet stores were from reputable breeders, spending weeks to months in a tiny little enclosure it not suitable for a puppy. Puppys need lots of stimulation from a young age - which they definitely are not getting inside a pet shop.

Lol anyone that lives near there should go and see if this policy is true "We will even refer customers to the RSPCA to source a new family member, however, some have young children and want to start with a puppy so they will know the temperament of the dog etc.  In most cases the customer returns to us because the RSPCA does not have any pups for sale".

wtf!?

They have said all the right thing. If what they say is tru, still, we don't need to encourage more breeding of dogs (or cats et al). Breeding shouldn't be considered until all the pounds have empty cages & we are putting down 0 dogs per year.

Exactly. The fact is no reputable breeder will give their dogs to pet shops because they want to make sure their puppies go to suitable homes.

There are plenty of puppies and kittens advertised on petrescue so if they truly cared they would stop selling their puppies and begin advertising those needing homes in the area.

A pet shop is not a place for a puppy- this is a critical time where the dog needs to be socialized and have room to grow. That's what I don't understand- people get upset with seeing dogs in kennels at the pound but they see pet shop enclosures totally different. These dogs are in there night and day, they only need to be taken out in the morning when their kennel is cleaned and then they're back in.

I bought my beautiful Maltese x 19 months ago from Puppy Palace. I did not go in buy a puppy and walk out. I was there just under 2 hours with the sales person who gave me a lot of information about what I was about to do and what to expect. I was truly amazed regarding the in depth information. Did not get the feeling that they just wanted to sell a puppy. Would definately recommend Puppy Palace.

I own Puppy Palace and love what we do. WE are a family business and run an ethical business. All of our breeder are happy to have someone from OSCARS law or whoever want to complain and get on the band wagon to visit their property as they have nothing to hide. We do not buy from "substandard Breeders" we buy from people like you and me that have a pet and have a litter, or CCC registered breeders or a client with a registered ethical kennel.  Pups are flown all around the world and if people want to complain that a puppy has been flown from Brisbane to Melbourne .....really,,,, it does not upset the puppy. We and our children fly and it is all ok. Where do you think the CCC registered people send their pups to?????YES  all over Australia.
