Our 6-Week Beginners Program Waiting List is still long… due to unprecedented interest late last year and early this year.

We want to reassure you that we are doing all we can with available resources to place you and your dog. As soon as a place becomes available, you will be notified of a class time and other details. 

We are volunteers working to accommodate your needs in a responsible and timely manner.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Member Achievements

Some of our members’ great efforts and achievements.

Icon Dog Event



Congratulations to Mary and Trilli for gaining First Place in the Scent Trial – Advanced Vehicles Search run by Gippsland Obedience Club on April 16th.

          This was achieved even though the weather was atrocious, with pouring rain all day. Most dogs didn’t mind because they loved sniffing, according to Mary; but I think the humans demonstrated incredible resolve.

Congratulations also to  other determined club members who gained passes on a terrible weather day: Christy Dowling, Belinda Osler, Robyn Davis and Wendy McLean. 

A great effort and outcome all round!

Icon Dog Event A FUN NIGHT!

January 10th was a “fun night” –  and a successful one – for Warragul Dog Club member, Christie Dowling.

She attended the Werribee Dog Obedience Twilight (Single Element) Scent Works Indoor Novice event with her dogs Roxy and Panda and her experienced dog handler mum, Linda Adams as Roxy’s handler.

Out of 29 dogs, little Roxy gained 3rd Place at an amazingly fast 7.34 secs and Panda gained a very decent Pass in 14th Place at 27.15 secs.

Congratulations Christie, Roxy, Panda – and Linda, who hadn’t done Scent Work before.

Congratulations to the many graduating classes of 2022.

August 2022 Ballarat Tracking Trials: Robyn Davis’s dogs excelled. Paddy obtained his Tracking Dog Championship & Sammy his TD (Tracking Dog Title). She wrote on the club Facebook page: “Very proud mum.”

Tresna Oakes’s toy poodle, Miah. In June 2022, our then President, Tresna Oakes and her toy poodle Miah entered their very first dog trial and gained 2 qualifying passes with high scores 98 & 90 out of 100. Only one more pass to go for the Rally Novice title. A great effort with an excellent outcome.

Member Responsibilities

  • Your dog is YOUR responsibility at all times!
  • All dogs – no matter how big or small – have the potential to cause serious damage or injury.
  • Dogs do not think like people, so to understand your dog you need to think like a dog.
  • NEVER hit your dog to discipline it, as this will only make it fearful.
  • Do not leave your dog unsupervised when it is tied up.
  • NEVER allow your dog to approach a strange dog tethered and alone.
  • Do not assume that because YOUR dog is friendly, other dogs will be OK with it.
  • Learn how to read dog  warning signs to help prevent dog aggression incidents.
  • If you are unsure what another dog is like – stay away from it.
