chequeDog shows can be great fun and an opportunity to talk to breeders and see a variety of purebreds in their best form. But there’s one special dog show that is a worthwhile cause for charity!

Dogs NSW’s Dalwood Children’s Home Charity Shows on November 25 – 26 at Orchard Hills raises funds to support vulnerable, young children and their families in New South Wales. This annual event has been running since 1932 and has raised about $1 million to date!

During 'National Pet Cancer Awareness Month', biotech company PharmAust is calling out for dogs to help evaluate a new anti-cancer drug (MPL) shown to be safe and effective in preliminary trials. The dogs must be newly diagnosed with B-cell lymphoma and have not started any treatment.

The MPL program involves two consultations/treatments at the Animal Referral Hospital in Homebush. PharmAust will cover all compassionate use program costs, including travel expenses to and from the ARH, as well as costs for the initial conventional chemotherapy treatment upon program completion.

URGENT: Upper Lachlan Shire Council - Draft Keeping of Companion Animals Policy

The Draft Policy is now available for public comment/submission from 2nd November 2017 to 30th November 2017. See:

All residents of the Upper Lachlan Shire are urged to get their submission lodged before the closing date of 30th November 2017.

Submissions should be to the point, clearly defining your objection to the Policy and why. The aim is to have at least a few hundred submissions lodged, showing Council that there is a significant objection to the proposed Draft Policy.

Now is the time to act to prevent your Shire and all residents from being burdened with the proposed Policy.

Dog with bookNow, in the supposed information era, there is much mis-information about dogs, and yet there is so much to learn.

“While ever I work with dogs I learn something new about them – everyday!” Dr Robert Zammit.

Consequently, we have embarked on the presentation of a series of seminars, gathering experts in the field of canine science, be it behaviour, nutrition, reproduction, genetics and the host of other headings under the husbandry and science of this species.
