ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE (SALE OR SUPPLY OF PET ANIMALS) REGULATIONS 2019

The IKC continues to be in discussion with the Department of Agriculture Food and Marine on the implementation on these regulations.

Michael Creed, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine has introduced a Statutory Instrument which will be effective from 1st February 2020 relating to the registration of people and premises who sell or supply five (5) or more pets in any one calendar year.
The Irish Kennel Club has been issued with a copy of the SI pertaining to the sale or supply of pets.
Below are the relevant points as they will affect members of the Irish Kennel Club.
• The regulations cover anyone who sells or supplies five or more pets in total, of one or more species in any one calendar year.
• There will be a lead in time of 3 months for registrations and both the premises and person will need to be on the register and to publish their unique registration number together with the microchip number of the dog or puppy on any advertisement, together with the country of origin.
• No pup can leave the premises prior to 8 weeks of age .
• Breeders and suppliers must keep records for 3 years of the dog’s/ pup’s details, to whom supplied, any mortalities and possible cause, microchip and vaccination details.
• Those breeders with five or more bitches of a breeding age come under the jurisdiction of the Dog Breeding Establishment Act and therefore do not have to register under this scheme .
• There will be no fee for registration.

The regulations come under the Animal Health and Welfare legislation and can be seen as an attempt to regulate the pet trade and trace-ability of all pets, increase animal welfare and consumer protection and is likely to be followed by similar E.U wide legislation . Many of the details for record keeping are what IKC breeders would normally do, so the burden of registration should not be too onerous. The regulations will bring into the public realm those “pet breeders” of so called designer dogs, those who trade in dogs and the unscrupulous who deliberately misinform consumers on the age or background of the dogs they supply. This should also put an end to the scams of selling pups from Air B&B premises etc to avoid detection or the sale of pups that are ill or too young. Certain contraventions (see 10 below) carry penal provisions under the Animal Welfare Act.

The IKC continues to be in discussion with the Department of Agriculture Food and Marine on the implementation on these regulations. As the regulations are part of the wider Animal Welfare Act 2013, it is likely that the enforcement authorities will include the ISPCA and DSPCA with whom the IKC are also in contact on an ongoing basis.

Once the Department has finalised the relevant web-page and registration process the IKC will provide a link, so please check for updates.

Pet Expo 2018

Pet Expo 2018.

Well it was another fun filled weekend of the 3rd and 4th of November 2018 at our third year hosting a stand at the pet expo for the Great Dane Association of Ireland. All the dogs behaved remarkable and enjoyed their time meeting and greeting the public.  Young and old enjoyed meeting the Danes and remarked on how gentle they were regardless of their sheer size.

A massive thank you to all our members that made the trip to help volunteers on both or one of the days.  Day 1 saw Fergus and Brian with Darcy and Phoenix , both harlequin Great Danes and mature boys and Sonya with Kali, just a baby at 1 year old and a fawn girl, who also happened to celebrate her birthday the same day.  Derek and Michelle were also present with their family of blues, granddad Aramis, Mammy Harper and 3 of her babies and Zavi another young blue boy owned by Colin and Jeannette. Wilma also popped along with her 2 Harlequin girls Dash and Jovi later in the afternoon.

Day 2 we had another great day with more of our members coming out to support the stand. Portia and Stephan arrived with sumba, a sister to Kali and Janice with Daisy a beautiful mature Mantle girl.  Zoe and Idas, a young fawn male, still very much a baby arrived to take part also. All the dogs mingled with the crowds and on both days took part in the breed parade.

Thank you to all who took part and we look forward to our next event.

Curragh Chase Walk 13th May 2018

The Great Dane Association of Ireland had another successful Great Dane Walk. Held at Curragh Chase Forest Park on Sunday the 13th of May 2018.

 

We had a nice gathering of members with their Danes who enjoyed the picnic and walk after. The weather stayed dry and not too hot for the doggies who also had a ball walking around the beautiful grounds of Curragh Chase and stopping to take the odd photo here and there.

The beautiful scenery provided a great opportunity to take some stacked photos and some lovely casual photos in the bluebell patch.

All of the Danes looked stunning surrounded by the beautiful trees, flowers and the lake.

The kiddies who also came along also had fun at the playground.

Looking forward to next years walk already.

I wonder what part of our beautiful island the Danes will appear  next time, watch this space.

 

SOCIALISATION WALK AT LOUGH BOORA DISCOVERY PARK. 7th May 2017

On Sunday the 7th of May 2017 the GDAI had an informal meet and greet at Lough Boora Discovery Park, Boora, Co.Offlay.Many members decided to meet, walk and later picnic with their Danes and families. Our objective was for many new and old members might like to take the opportunity to meet and get to know each other better. Those of us who have agreed to gather have decided to contribute and collect on the day a small contribution towards Great Dane rescue also on the day. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine and there was a great turnout. All the Danes walking side by side pleasantly drew great attention and we finished the day with a wonderful picnic.

Pet Expo 2016

Great Dane Association Of Irelands first pet expo was a huge success. Held in the RDS in Dublin on the 15th and 16th of October.

There was a massive crowd around the GDAI stand. GDAI members were happy to pass on information and hand out our association flyers and health and breed information packs. The general public were queuing to stroke and cuddle the Danes and lots of children getting their pictures taken with them. It was a huge testament of our gentle giants temperament, they loved all the attention and were all so well behaved.

Thank you to everyone who attended and was involved in the GDAI stand at pet expo this year. Another successful event for GDAI.

GDAI Inaugural event

Our inaugural event took place on sunday the 2nd of October 2016.

The event was held at

We had a meet and greet stand with health and information packs. We had our new range of GDAI merchandise stand which was a huge success. There was agility training and a course, many thanks to Nuala O’Brien and her team for setting it up and running it. We had a PEATA pet therapy stand and Great Dane PEATA dogs, many thanks to Catherine. We had a kiddies corner including face painting, colouring in and pony rides. Guess the Great Danes weight. Fun dog show sponsored by Royal canin, thanks so much to Mary Davidson for donating Royal Canin vouchers and prizes. Training and socialisation run by Anne marie which everyone enjoyed. There was also a cake stand, a raffle and tea, coffee and refreshments made available all day by Karen Rice and her mum Trish, thank you both.

To round of a fantastic and most enjoyable family fun day we had celebratory GDAI cake and champagne.

Thanks again to  everyone for the huge effort put in and the fantastic turnout it really made for a very special day indeed.

Curragh Chase Walk 2018

Hi everyone, 
??? Picnic Time ???
Sunday 13th of May

Many members have decided to meet again this year after a lovely time we had last year, and have a walk and later picnic( please bring your own food )with their Danes and families. We thought many new and old members might like to take the opportunity to meet and get to know each other better. 
Those of us who have agreed to gather have decided to contribute and collect on the day a small contribution towards Great Dane rescue. If you are interested in attending please feel free to come along, picnic and BBQ areas area located over looking the lake, and a large playground for children , everyone is welcome. Please note that there is a charge of €5 to enter curraghchase Co Limerick , there are toilets and Cafe facilities on site. All dogs will need to be supervised and kept on a lead, with responsible ownership as always in a public place. We look forward to seeing you all from 1pm. Link to curraghchase
