Donation Thanks

Friday, 30 August 2019

Dogs Victoria wishes to thank the Whippet Association of Victoria once again for so generously donating funds to build the new exercise runs at KCC Park and new signage has recently been erected to reflect this. These off leash areas are open to all members who visit the Park.

Other donations from Berwick All Breeds Kennel Club, Yarra Glen Kennel Club and Friends of Obedience have also made a difference.

If any member or club wishes to donate to help further improve the Park facilities, please make contact via korr@dogsvictoria.org.au and BE THE CHANGE THAT YOU WANT TO SEE.

Procedures for Clubs - Calendar & Schedules

Wednesday, 31 July 2019

Have you checked the calendar?

Clubs are reminded of the following:

  • If a club does not intend to hold an event which is listed on the calendar that they need to request to have the event removed. By doing so this will allow other clubs to hold their events on the busier weekends.
  • If a club intends to hold an additional event to what is on the calendar, this request must come to the office in writing at least six months in advance for approval by the Calendar & Events Committee, via the office. The request can either come on club letterhead or via the online form found here

Dogs Victoria regulation 3.5.3:
“Any affiliated body that wishes to change the date that has been allocated for the holding of a Championship Show, Open Show, Parade or Trial, shall make application for the change. No application will be considered within six (6) months of the scheduled date of such fixture”

Have you lodged your schedule?

  • Clubs MUST lodge their schedule for approval before they advertise their event. Monetary penalties are being imposed on clubs who do not lodge their schedules in the adequate time frame.
  • Judges contracts MUST be lodged with all schedules. Judges cannot be contracted for an event which has not been approved onto the calendar.
  • Clubs must make sure that if they are lodging schedule all events are listed have been approved and placed on the Dogs Victoria calendar.

Dogs Victoria regulation 7.6.6:
“Fixture schedules that require publication must be submitted to the Dogs Victoria office for approval at least FOUR months prior to the first of the month in which the fixture is being held. Fixture schedules not being published must be submitted to the office for approval at least THREE months prior to the first of the month in which the fixture is being held.”

Our Frequently Asked Questions (Club Requirements) webpage has been created as a reference point for your convenience.
