||German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia (GSDCA)
||A unique tattoo is placed in the right ear of puppies at the age of 7- 8 weeks. The tattoo is made up of 3
letters (identifying the kennel prefix, unique to that kennel in Australia), followed by a 3 digit number
indicating the puppy number bred by that kennel ("ABC123"). Both state and national records are kept and this tattoo
is then used as the means of identification for the purpose of hip, elbow, haemophilia and breed survey schemes.
It also means the dog is very traceable in the event of loss or theft via its tattoo throughout Australia.
