Kennel Cough Warning

Thursday, 7 February 2019

Several cases of kennel cough have been reported to the Dogs Victoria office amongst members’ dogs who may have attended events at either KCC Park or Bulla. Kennel Cough is highly contagious between dogs, with the main symptom being a persistent and forceful cough.

Members with dogs who display the symptoms of Kennel Cough are encouraged to contact their veterinarian for advice as we encourage you to keep affected dogs away from all other dogs during the contagious period. If you are concerned about Kennel Cough we recommend you contact your veterinarian for further information and advice.


Off Leash Areas at KCC Park

Friday, 1 February 2019

We wish to inform members that whilst the small and large off leash areas at KCC Park are still accessible, they may not be secure for your dog and individuals enter at their own risk.  Appropriate signage has been placed on the entry gates to advise of this.

The off leash areas have been scheduled for an upgrade and further notification of this will follow in due course.

Keeping our dogs safe is the top priority and we know you feel the same. We thank you for your continued support and understanding.

KCC Park Exhibition Area One

Extensive works on Exhibition Area One have been completed. This area has been over utilised for many years which includes daily use during weekdays. 

Members are advised that Exhibition Area One is to be used solely for scheduled events (shows / trials) and is now closed for members use at other times.  Members are welcome to use Exhibition Areas two, three, six and seven for training and exercising their dogs.  See KCC Park map here

Management Committee will revisit this policy in early 2019.


Hot off the Press

A Notice to all Melbourne Royal Show 2022 Participants

It has come to Dogs Victoria's attention that parking on Leonard Crescent, Flemington has changed from previous years. Although it is directed in your drop off/pick up parking permits to park in the Broadcast (Victoria University) carpark, on day one there was no ability to pay cash at the gate with members being advised that they needed to prebook. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be clear guidance on how to pre pay for this parking.

 

The Melbourne Royal Show has advised Dogs Victoria that exhibitors can access the main Flemington Racecourse carpark after drop off. Alternatives are to pay for local private house parking or park at the local school. Dogs Victoria is continuing to seek clarity from The Melbourne Royal Show regarding exhibitor car parking and will update members as soon as any further information is available. I encourage members to preplan their parking and to share this with any Melbourne Royal Show Exhibitors to avoid any parking complications.

 

Kind Regards,

Jason Eggleton | Chief Executive
