The ALA requires both, new members who are experienced dog breeders or new to both the ALA and Australian Labradoodle breeding, to have a mentor during their provisional membership.
If this is your first time as a mentor, please familiarise yourself with the process. Click here to view our “Mentor & Mentee Information” page.
If a new breeder reaches out to you wishing to join the ALA and asking for a nomination, please direct them to the “Join the ALA” page and highlight that they should read the Rules & Regulations document on the “ALA Code of Ethics” page. They should then contact our New Breeder Coordinator for further information at [email protected].
You will need to send the link to the “New Breeder Application – Mentee” page below to your mentee, along with your letter of introduction. This should be saved as a PDF with the breeder name and document title in the filename e.g. “Bellissimo Introduction letter mentor”.
