  • Vaccination Certificates
  • Vet letters confirming vaccination
  • Vet letters confirming results from Titre testing are high enough to not need vaccinating

  • All equipment must be in good working order
  • Fixed (soft leather, material) collars, limited slip collars, martingales, harnesses
  • Cotton webbing leads or leather leads at least 90cm in length bearing in mind longer leads need to adhere to the bylaws of the Victoria Park Council (this may mean leads shouldn't exceed 120 cm - or in cases that they do the dog could be considered to be in breach of the by-laws
  • Use of prong, choker, shock, choker chain collars will NOT be accepted in class
  • Use of Flexi, extender/retractable, chains or leads that contain chain & pieces of rope (i.e. rope you buy from the hardware store knotted to the dogs collar) will NOT be accepted in class
     
11.  ALL dogs must be under control and supervised at all times whilst on all of Perth Training and Obedience Dog Club's training grounds. This is for the safety of dogs that are tethered and any members of the public that are on the training grounds as they are public parks.
  • Dogs must be on lead at all times
  • If dogs are doing off lead work you as the owner of the dog take full responsibility for the control of the dog while it is off lead and ultimately the decision to let your dog off lead is your choice
