Dog farms in Nigeria

Last updated:

I know that the reason why you searched for “dog farms in Nigeria” is because you, just like every other dog lovers in Nigeria are looking for not just a dog farm, but a dog breeder – a very reliable one. To buy dog(s) from.



This can also be seen as a kennel. That is, where dogs are kept. But taking a closer look at the word “farm” one will notice that the word “farm” is used for:
a. Reproduction
b. Business


Secondly, I personally think, the right word to be used is “dog kennels in Nigeria” instead of “dog farms in Nigeria”. I know that rearing dogs is a sector in Agriculture. Now, where they are kept or bred is called a “kennel” and those who breed them are called “breeders”.

Haven known that, let’s look at why we’re here.

N/B: Anyone who tells you that he knows all the dog breeders in Nigeria and can list them all out, is a liar. -For Christ sake, do you know the total number of citizens Nigeria has? Just recently, The United Nations (UN) confirmed that we are 201million. Now, can a single man or even a group of men point or list out all the dog lovers or owners from 201million? – the simple answer is NO!

I’m not going to list out all the dog farms in Nigeria, because I do not possess such capacity. – only GOD can do that.

Nonetheless, I’ll be doing something close to that. What do I mean by that?


You see, Nigeria has become more sophisticated. That is why, they’re seriously upgrading in lots of things. Although, the area of corruption have been left untouched. ­čÖé

Unlike before – I mean in the 1980’s and 1990’s where there was nothing like a gathering where animal lovers meet.
We now have them. – Clubs, Associations, etc of dog lovers. In such places, you get to find not only dog lover, but enthusiasts, breeders, groomers, pet shop owners, dog food producers etc..

Instead of listing all the dog farms in Nigeria – which is impossible. I’ll be picking the best breeders – those that have been tested, trusted and those that their results speak for them. These are the people whose profiles will be listed here:

Even though, we are yet to have a National Body, we still have dog clubs almost in all States of the federation.

Amongst all these clubs and associations, there are some that have gone ahead of others whose members are doing well and most importantly, practicing “Standard”. By “standard” I mean, the work with the breed guideline and try to maintain the exact quality and even improve it- if need be.
