The Dogs Victoria State Obedience & Rally Trials - 7 & 8 August 2021

The OTEC Committee wish to advise that due to the current Victorian restrictions, the Rally Dog of the Year Competition that was to be held on 7 & 8 August 2021, will be postponed. 

The OTEC Committee will review the fixtures calendar and advise of a rescheduled date to members within the coming days. 

The entries fees will be retained at this time until a new date is organised. If you are unable to attend on that date, refunds will be issued. 


Western Suburbs COVID Recovery Show and Canine Amenities COVID Recovery Show

Rescheduling of Events
Due to the State Government restrictions the Canine Amenities COVID Recovery Championship Show and the Western Suburbs COVID Recovery Championship Show cannot be held on the 5/6 June 2021.
The COVID Roving Show Committee wish to advise that Dogs Victoria Management Committee have approved the rescheduling of the two events which will now be held on Sunday 10 October - Canine Amenities COVID Recovery Championship Show; Sunday 24 October - Western Suburbs COVID Recovery Championship Show.
Entries for these two shows will not open with the online provider until the judging panel for both shows have been confirmed and a schedule posted. Those judges from our 5/6 June panel, if they are available, will be included.
We thank exhibitors for their patience as the Roving Show Committee work through the rescheduling of these two events.
As the rescheduled dates are outside of the 30 day window, (the rescheduled events are effectively two new shows), entries for the 5/6 June shows will now be closed and all entry monies refunded.
Work has now commenced on the new judging panels and we expect to have these two panels finalised as soon as practicable.

Hot off the Press

From the Chief Executive

Dear members,
 
Welcome to 2022! We hope you have enjoyed the festive season.
 
We have returned after the holiday period to find our message bank, email inbox and letter box is bulging with applications and inquiries as a result of a number of late 2021 initiatives or actions such as;
• Delays with Australia Post delivering renewals
• Staff and responsibility changes
• Staff absence (Covid/Non Covid related)
• Fantastic response to our membership renewal and database maintenance/update initiatives
• Return to events that has increased title applications
• The holiday period that has provided time for members to catch up on paperwork submissions
 
Because of this, we expect processing times to exceed our three day turnaround target probably until late January 2022. We appreciate your understanding during this period whilst we get on top of the influx of processing we’ve received.
 
Whilst we work hard to quickly get on top of the bulging workload, we would appreciate members holding off on following up on recent applications or inquiries submitted so that we are able to focus on processing the initial application or inquiry.
 
We will advise once we have returned to standard processing times (three day turnaround) so members are able to follow up if there is missing, delayed or outstanding processing matters.
 
We thank you again for your patience during this time,
 

Jason Eggleton
