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.
