  • Lappies must be on a lead at all times, unless crated, or directed by a faciliatator while participating in an activity.
  • Crated dogs should not be left unsupervised for long periods, a short period to use the bathroom is fine.

  • Lappies participating should be under reasonable control, and able to be around other dogs without agressive behaviour.
  • While we expect some barking (they are lappies), if there is any excessive barking or reactivity during an activity, you may be asked to move away from other dogs so that participation for yourself and everyone else can continue.
  • There are other events on, including an All Breeds show, so participants and attendees in addition to keeping their dogs on lead, show respect to other people and dogs at the show in line with Dogs Victoria expectations.
