Chevromist Kennels is not a puppy farm. Chevromist is a registered Domestic Animal Business that undergoes regular audits and inspections by Animal Welfare of Victoria as well as the local authority. Our kennels are approved by the Victorian Agricultural Minister. In order to receive approval from the Victorian Minister we had to undergo a very lengthy process including a 6 hour audit conducted by 4 Victorian Animal Welfare Officers and the Chief Veterinary Officer of Victoria before the Agricultural Minister of Victoria considers granting approval. This process is necessary to ensure that Victorian Minister Approved Kennels are operating at the very highest of Animal Welfare standards.

What is a Puppy Farm?
One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is what is a puppy farm?
Puppy farms (also known as puppy mills or puppy factories) have become one of the hot topics in the dog world and pose a major welfare issue for dogs in Australia. The RSPCA has defined a puppy farm as ‘an intensive dog breeding facility that is operated under inadequate conditions that fail to meet the dogs’ behavioural, social and/or physiological needs’.
