Website Information

Thursday, 11 October 2018

We wish to inform our members of the following updates to our Dogs Victoria website.

Emergency Response Plan

With the onset of summer and warmer weather, our Emergency Response Plan document for Members has been added to our Emergency Information page - see here.  Understand your risk and stay informed this summer.

Quick Links

Frequently Asked Questions and the Code of Practice templates and forms have been added to the Quick Links footer located at the bottom of each page on our website.  This should assist with searches as these links offer direct access to the deeper sections of our website.

Further updates will be provided as we continue to review the usability of our website as a whole.

Library closure update

Friday, 5 October 2018

We apologise for the ongoing closure of the Laurie Luxmoore library at KCC Park.

Building works inside the library are scheduled to commence next week, resulting in the area being not accessible to members. We are working to restore the library to normal operation as quickly as possible. We do not yet have a firm date, but hope to have the library open by the end of October, subject to the approval of the Library Committee.

Thank you for your patience while we make improvements to the site.
