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

Helping owners train their dogs to be wonderful companions and great canine citizens

About BDAG


Bellarine Dog Activities Group Inc. has been providing training classes and activities for pet dogs and their handlers in the Geelong region of Australia since 1996.

Our qualified and experienced instructors employ positive, motivational training methods which are force-free and fear-free.  We aim to help you better understand your unique canine companion and to build a strong bond as the foundation for training.

We offer beginner to advanced levels of training at reasonable prices.  Many people progress through the foundation classes and then continue on to advanced training such as agility, scent work, tricks and rally.

We operate from the Geelong showgrounds on most Thursday evenings during school terms.  Classes are conducted in each of the four terms and each class runs for 8 weeks.

For further information explore our website.



Please note that due to COVID 19, all training classes at BDAG were cancelled from 17 March 2020 until Term 1 2021.    This has resulted in a back-log of new members waiting to join our introduction classes.

We encourage people to register as soon as possible so as to join the waitlist.  At this time our waitlist is out to Term 1 2023.  Please see the new members section for details on how to register.

Thank you for your understanding whilst we catch up on the waitlist.

Interested in training with us?

We offer group classes (usually less than 8 dogs per class), one-on-one consultations and training for reactive dogs, assistance dog training and advanced training.
