COVID 19 Update – All Training Cancelled Until 30 April


Tuesday night and Saturday trainings are now cancelled until at least 30th April.

Dogs Victoria have advised that from Monday 16 March 2020 until Thursday 30 April 2020 – all Dogs Victoria events are to be cancelled or postponed. This includes our club training activities.

Dogs Victoria will review the situation on Wednesday 15 April 2020 and will advise of any further actions post this date.

Further training updates will then be provided to our members though our communication channels Facebook / this Webpage and Email.

In the meantime, look after yourselves and your pooches.


We are all aware of the concerns regarding the Coronavirus Health alert, and we, as the Northcote Obedience Dog Club, are following the guidelines from Australian Government Department of Health, which is also the recommendation from Dogs Victoria.

We will still be holding training tomorrow. To assist us with minimising the risk to all club members we will be giving each other some space during training (1.5 metres distance from other members) and ask you also maintain a similar distance from each other before and after training.

To protect you and your fellow club members please ensure that if you are unwell or been in contact with an unwell person or even someone that you suspect has been in contact with a person with COVID-19 within the last 14 days that you do not attend training.

Instead seek appropriate medical advice. More information may be found on the Government Health Authorities sites.

If you suspect that you have become infected and have attended training within the last 14 days we ask that you inform the Secretary as soon as possible to enable the appropriate trace back to occur.

The AVA have provided advice that there is no record of Dog to Human transmission of this virus.

Further training updates will be provided though our communication channels Facebook / Webpage and Email.
