The KODTC is a 'not for profit, incorporated association',  operating for its members.  We are registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981.  


Our management Committee provides oversight and direction for the club.  Some of the responsibilities include:


  • Ensuring an Annual General Meeting is held where new members are encouraged to be involved,

  • Meeting once a month,

  • Managing the finances of the club,

  • Improving Club programs and services,

  • Liaising with the City of Moonee Valley on relevant Club and grounds issues

  • Promoting the club and positive dog ownership


The Committee meetings are held in the clubrooms on the first Wednesday evening of the month (usually at 7.00pm or 7.30pm depending on the time of year)  and all financial members are welcome to attend these meetings.  If you have any queues or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact any of the committee members. 


The AGM is held in November each year and we encouragre members to consider joining the committee to enrich our club with their expertise, experience and enthusiasm.  It is also an opportunity to get to know club members better and to help build a stronger dog friendly community.

Friends of the committee 

While Lilly and Jim are not 'on' the committee, due to their inability to attend committee meeting in winter, they are a great help to the committee and both can often be found in the kiosk assisting. (Only with the permission of the faithful hound, Baxter, of course.)  

Bryan Crowley has been a committee member for more years than he probably cares to remember, including being a past president and secretary.  This is the first year that Bryan has chosen to step back and support the committee rather than being on the committee. His assistance and knowledge are both priceless.

Mel Lobo is a long time friend of KODTC and will be found most Sunday mornings setting up the pavillion and grounds for our training sessions.  Mel is another who is 'priceless' as far as the club is concerned.
