Grounds webImagine a permanent, internationally-recognised State Dog Centre featuring numerous show rings, training areas for herding, obedience, agility and more, plus a library and museum showcasing books and artifacts on all things canine, an Education Centre and an off-leash park area for neighbourhood residents. It would be a tail-wagging destination for ‘everybody and their dog’ – literally.

Dogs NSW is the peak body responsible for promoting breeding, showing, trialling, obedience and other canine-related activities and the ownership of temperamentally and physically sound purebred dogs across the state. With more than 10,000 members, Dogs NSW is calling on the NSW Government to consider creating a permanent state dog park on its 27-year-old grounds in Orchard Hills.

“Dogs NSW’s lease with the NSW Government runs for another 11 years with an option to extend until 2038,” said Dogs NSW spokesperson Brian Crump.
