We wish to advise of the recent installation of 3 new drinking fountains at KCC Park. These are available for use by members and visitors to the Park. In addition, each drinking fountain has an integrated bowl and side tap for your dog’s refreshment.
The drinking fountains can be found in 3 locations – in the Classic Food Court (by the old K9 Café), outside the female toilets beside the Boxhall Pavilion and on the same side of the Pavilion in the far corner.
We hope you make use of these drinking stations as we continue to improve facilities at KCC Park as part of our 10 year development plan.

Dogs Victoria is aware that under the Victorian Road Safety Rules 2017 (Part 18 - Miscellaneous Road Rules), it is prohibited to lead an animal by the driver of a motor vehicle or rider of a bicycle (and includes tethering of an animal to a motor vehicle or bicycle). This has implications for the ANKC accredited Endurance Test.
Dogs Victoria is aware of this issue and OTEC will address the issue at its next meeting and then discuss this at national level, but current plans are for ET trials to continue in 2018.
Dogs Victoria will keep members advised of further developments on this issue.
