Australian Silky Terrier, Japanese Chin Breeder - Dogs - Brisbane, QLD : Perfect Pets Profile

We have had Australian Silky Terriers in our lives for over 30 years, and have been showing them since 1996. I fell in love with the Japanese Chin breed in 2010.

Our Breeding Program
We do not breed a litter simply for the sake of having puppies. We breed primarily for ourselves to firstly 'better the breed', and to show in conformation shows. All of our prospective breeding pairs are specially selected after carefully researching the pedigrees of both parents. Indeed, some matings are planned even before the 'parents' have been born. It's not as easy as just putting a dog and bitch together and hope for a wonderful litter. The offspring are then monitored in their early days and weeks to choose the best for the show ring. As registered breeders are governed by a strict Code of Conduct, as set down by Dogs NSW, which we are obliged to abide by. We do not breed our dogs until they have reached full maturity usually at 2 years as a minimum age and only then, if they are suitable for breeding. Not all puppies/dogs are suited to the show ring and those that do not make it are offered for adoption as pets and companions to carefully screened new homes.

Those offered as pets/companions does not in any way mean they are 'inferior'... simply that they not suited to the show ring. They could be the wrong colour, have incorrect shaped eyes or simply would rather run around the house and yard being loved by a loving family.

We believe that pet families have an equal right to have a well-bred puppy, and do not view puppy families as a means of off-loading inferior or 'sub-standard' puppies. By providing quality, healthy puppies to pet families by responsible registered breeders gives those families the option NOT to purchase inferior specimens of the breed from pet shops or puppy farmers, where they do not know exactly what they are buying.

New owners are carefully screened and new families are required to complete our agreement form as set out on our 'Puppy Page' which can be found on our website.

Our puppies are Health Certified and lovingly raised in our home in clean and tidy conditions and are totally spoilt. Once puppies are up and around,at around 4 weeks of age, they are given free run of our house. In good weather conditions, they have a large puppy pen on the lawn to run around in. By the time they go to their new homes, they are well adjusted, well-socialised and familiar with the usual household noises and activities.

Our puppies do not leave until they are at least 9-10 weeks of age and we encourage prospective new owners to visit (by appointment), but not until after the puppy has had their first vaccination at around 7 weeks of age. Families often call to visit their puppies once they are old enough. On these visits families are introduced to both parents and can interact with them.
