BDAG dog training

CHANGES IN BDAG FEES

At the recent BDAG AGM, members unanimously supported a substantial fee increase starting Term 1, 2020 (i.e. February 2020). This will be the first fee increase in many years.

There will be a considerable ‘pension’ card holder discount (‘pension card’ includes Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card, Senior’s Card etc.).

New annual membership fees apply to all membership payments made from 1 September 2019, noting that membership for those who join in the last quarter of 2019 extends to 31 January 2021 (that is, five terms).

New term training fees come into effect for term one 2020.  Term training fees are paid each term, for each dog participating in training.

NEW BDAG FEES:

Joining Fee (once-off unless membership lapses)

                Standard: $25

                Pension card holder: $25

 

Annual Membership Fee (paid yearly, and due in January)

                Standard single: $45

                Standard family: $60

                Pension card holder: $20

 

Term Training Fee (paid per term, per dog in training. A term is 8 weeks long)

                Standard: $80

                Pension card holder: $30
