Welcome to the Bellarine Dog Activities Group

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

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 Wednesday & Thursday evenings during school terms.  A wide range of classes are conducted in each of the four terms and each class run for 8 weeks.

For further information explore our website.

CANCELLATION OF CLASSES –  TERM 2,  TERM 3 & probably TERM 4, 2020

Please note that due to COVID 19, all training classes at BDAG have been cancelled from 17 March 2020.    We were hopeful of being able to resume training in Term 4, however the State Government has recently advised that we are not yet permitted to do so.

BDAG Committee will continue to monitor the situation, and we will adapt our plans to match any relaxing of restrictions.  This website will be updated with any new information about training resumption.

Thank you for your understanding in this difficult situation.
