Chevromist Kennels is a family business that is a registered Domestic Animal Business which undergoes regular audits and inspections by Animal Welfare of Victoria as well as the local authority. We are extremely excited and proud to announce that our kennels are now 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.

Over 30 years breeding great dogs
It takes a team
We are incredibly fortunate and grateful to have the most hard working team of well trained, passionate people to help care for our dogs and puppies. It’s a 24 hour, 7 day per week mission to make sure dogs are being walked, groomed, fed, cleaned and everything else in between! It never ends… but we love it!!
We understand genetics
We believe that it’s absolutely vital that breeders are experienced and educated in animal genetics to ensure they have the expertise to carefully study and understand their dogs genetics. Michael from Chevromist Kennels is always our first point of contact before we plan a litter of puppies. Michael has been involved with breeding dogs for over 30 years. Along with that hands on experience, he completed his degree in Animal Science with a focus on Genetics, then went on to complete his Honours work in immunology through Melbourne University’s Dept of Medicine and the CSIRO Australian Animal Health Laboratory. We are extremely fortunate to have Michael as an integral part of our team.
We have been featured
Victorian Minister ApprovedWhen it comes to breeding dogs, Victoria has the strictest laws and regulation in Australia so you can be sure that your puppy has been born and raised with the best care possible.
Our kennels have been inspected and approved by the Chief Veterinary Officer of Victoria and the Victorian Agricultural Minister of Victoria.
There are many different categories of breeders in Australia and it can be confusing to understand the differences. Unfortunately, just about any body can claim to be a “registered” breeder but this is often misleading. Victoria has the strongest laws in Australia regulating Victorian dog breeders.
As well as being Victorian Minister Approved, we are fully licenced as a Domestic Animal Business. This means that we undergo thorough audits from the Chief Veterinary Officer of Victoria and our local council.
Genetic Health Tested Dogs
Our Breeding Program includes DNA testing for over 30 Genetic Diseases. Michael Attard from Chevromist Kennels has completed his degree in Animal Science with a focus on Genetics before completing his Honours work in immunology through Melbourne University’s Dept of Medicine and the CSIRO Australian Animal Health Laboratory. Michael is always available to provide expert advice and help improve our breeding program.
3 Year Health Guaranteed
Although we do our very best to reduce the risk of health issues, just like all living creatures, unfortunately we can not eliminate the risk of a health issue developing entirely. Each puppy comes with a 3 Year Health Guarantee that covers Hereditary and Congenital issues up to the purchase price of the puppy.
Owning a new puppy is big decision and you may have questions as your puppy is developing. We’ve been breeding dogs for over 30 years and we’re accustomed to new owners getting in touch with us for some advice. We are always here to help!
