Dances with Dogs Club of Victoria
The Dances with Dogs Club of Victoria was formed in March, 2010 to promote the sport of Dances with Dogs, and to hold trials for competitors in Victoria.
The aims of the Club are:
- to provide an opportunity for dog owners and dogs of all ages to participate in the sport of Dances with Dogs;
- through positive re-enforcement training, encourage strong bonds between dogs and their handlers;
- to provide the opportunity for dog owners and handlers to enter sanctioned competitions;
- to offer an alternative training and competitive environment that focuses on the new discipline of Dances with Dogs.
Details of upcoming trials are listed under the "Trials" page.
The Club welcomes new members, with dogs of all breeds and levels of training over six months of age, and any person over the age of 12 years.
Classes are held at KCC Park, Skye, and also at Dogs Vic Bulla Campus. Full details of class times can be found on the "Classes" page. All members will begin in Foundation Class, and progress through the levels at the Training Committee's discretion. New members' classes commence on Tuesdays at KCC Park at 7.15 pm, and monthly on Fridays at Bulla Exhibition Centre at 7.15 pm. Please make sure you bring your enrolment form, payment, and copy of the dog's vaccination form if not already submitted.
Observers are welcome at any training session; if you bring your dog with you, please make sure it is on-leash at all times.
