As promised Management Committee will be conducting a series of member forums throughout the state to give all members a chance to be part of the future improvement and growth of Dogs Victoria.
Our first regional member forum is being held in Shepparton at 7pm on 4 July at the Shepparton Agricultural Society Rooms.
Further visits will be held in Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Traralgon, and at our two metropolitan facilities at Bulla and KCC Park. Advance notice will be given for venues and dates. The focus of these meetings will be to hear what Dogs Victoria members would like to see in the future in our organisation.

Dogs Victoria was last week awarded recognition at the ‘Healthy Skin Awards 2018’, thanks to efforts from the Bulla Amenities Sub-committee who worked to bring the skin health awareness message to the dog showing community. Receiving the award on behalf of Dogs Victoria were Mr Greg Browne, who is himself a melanoma survivor, along with President and Vice President of the Bulla Amenities Sub Committee – Dr Linda Beer & Ms Julia Jones, as well as incoming President of Dogs Victoria, Mr Wayne Fleming.
The awards presented by the Skin & Cancer Foundation, acknowledge groups or individuals that are active in spreading the healthy skin message across a diverse range of age groups, especially those involved in outdoor pursuits or working in the sun. Dogs Victoria were one of five groups/individuals acknowledged on the night, held at the Melbourne Museum Gallery. During his acceptance speech, Mr Browne pointed out that participation in our fabulous hobby does unfortunately mean many hours outside in all kinds of weather. It is important that all members, young and old, take care of their skin and practice sun-safe habits so that they avoid the risk of melanoma and other skin cancers developing as a consequence of repeated exposure to the sun.
The Bulla Amenities Sub Committee held an active ‘skin health campaign’ at their ‘Autumn Extravaganza Shows’ earlier this year handing out hats and sunscreen to competitors and spectators, but they also plan to extend the skin health awareness message by offering discounted skin checks with qualified dermatologists in conjunction with the Skin & Cancer Foundation later this year. Any Dogs Victoria members who may be interested in taking advantage of this service are asked to send an expression of interest to Bulla Amenities Sub Committee via their Facebook page.
