Welcome to the Bellarine Dog Activities Group Inc. (BDAG)

BDAG is a club formed in 1997 as a public service group in Geelong, Australia.

Our aims are: 1) To train dog owners in motivational training methods, so that their dog understands what is required of it, and has basic manners suitable for living in harmony with people and other animals. 2) That owners are aware of their responsibility to others and their dogs.

We run dog training classes in Geelong every school term (i.e. four training blocks a year).
Each block runs for 8 weeks.

See New Member FAQs for more information about our training methods and classes.
If you are already a member of BDAG, or wish to renew your membership, please view our Current Members page.


At the recent BDAG AGM, members unanimously supported a substantial fee increase starting Term 1, 2020.

After many years of remaining the same, BDAG fees will increase from the beginning of 2020.  Considerable pension card holder discounts will apply.
