FAQ breeder

How nice that you are going to breed a nest of dogs. A super fun experience, but rules do come around the corner. You will have to deal with laws and regulations. You cannot breed too many dogs as a private individual, because then RVO considers you to be a commercial breeder. Since the introduction of the new legislation, a one-off or private breeder must also have an UBN before the puppies can be chipped. If you do not yet have a UBN, this can be requested from RVO.

After birth, you should have the puppy(s) chipped and issued with a European animal passport within 7 weeks. Chipping may be done by a government-approved chipper or by a veterinarian, while issuing the animal passport may only be done by a veterinarian. Via PetBase registers the chipper/veterinarian eenvoudig alle benodigde gegevens en meldt ze door aan RVO, waarmee aan deze verplichting is voldaan. De dierenarts registreert de honden in jouw PetBase account waar je de registraties kunt beheren. Ook de overdrachtscodes voor de nieuwe eigenaren kan je in dit account terug vinden.

Start by creating your own account in https://mijn.petbase.eu/. You will need your valid UBN for dogs for this, arrange it on time.
Zijn de geboorte en chipaanbrengmelding van een dier geregistreerd in Mijn.PetBase door de dierenarts , dan is het dier vanaf dat moment terug te vinden in jouw fokkers-account. Hier regel je eenvoudig de overdracht aan de nieuwe eigenaar.  Ook als de geboorte van het dier eerder aangemeld was via een ander aangewezen portaal, kan het dier bij PetBase geregistreerd worden. 

When an animal moves from you to the adopter (new owner), you want to arrange this properly in PetBase. The old owner/breeder gives the new owner the animal, together with the transfer code belonging to the chip registration and the animal's official papers (animal passport or vaccination booklet). Then the new owner creates a MijnPetBase account (or already has one and logs in). The new owner retrieves the animal with the chip number and the received transfer code in his/her own account. De nieuwe eigenaar betaalt hierbij slechts het eenmalige bedrag van € 7,50 voor een levenslange registratie op zijn/haar naam.

The transfer code can be found by logging into your PetBase account, then go to 'My animals' and click 'Details and change'. At the bottom right of the registration, you will see the transfer code. Read here more about this transfer.

If the chip number is entered incorrectly, it cannot simply be changed by you as the breeder. Contact the registering authority (veterinary clinic), which should remove the registration completely. The registration can then be done again with the correct chip number.

In the United States, among others, the FDX-A chip number is often used. An FDX-A chip number has a code of 10 characters long and usually consists of 9 digits and 1 letter. In Europe, FDX-B chip numbers are always used for pets. These chip numbers are built up in a fixed way. They always consist of 15 digits. The first three digits are either a manufacturer number or a country code. Manufacturer numbers always start with a 9, for example 945 for FiveStar transponders.

ISO standards 11784/85, in combination, form the standard for electronic animal identification. ISO 11784 describes the number structure (15 digits, first 3 are manufacturer or country code). ISO 11785 is the technical concept of the chips. All chips sold by PetBase B.V. comply with these standards.

No, not all animals have this obligation. The obligation for 528 numbers applies to dogs and horses.
