Petition to Andrew Mcdonald, Sandy Stockman

Please allow Morgan and Flynn to train at the Agility Dog Club of Victoria

Karen Hollis was awarded life membership of the Agility Dog Club of Victoria. She was a founding member of this club. She was a Club Instructor and served on Committee for 15 years, including 8 years as Club Secretary.  There was never any issue with her performance as a Club Instructor or as a long-standing Committee member.In 2011, Karen raised her concerns about the manner in which she was being treated by one Committee member, on advice of Dogs Victoria. Unprofessional e-mails ensued. Karen has wanted to happily train her dogs at this club which happens to be convenient to her. Instead of discussing this matter with Karen, which is an obligation of the Club,  Karen's life membership has refused to be recognised. Karen has put a lot into this club over many years. She believes she should be able to participate in this sport. Karen has not only been excluded from the club, she has been repeatedly called a "stalker" for attempting to resolve this problem. She has repeatedly asked to speak to Club representatives, this has in fact never occurred. Karen should not be kept out of a Club that she devoted so much time to.Other Club members are entitled to train their dogs. We ask the club to please recognise her life membership and allow her to immediately train her Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Morgan and Flynn.Karen has helped many people in many ways over the years. Please sign this petition and show your support.

Petition to Bass Coast

LET OUR DOGS RUN - Coronet Bay & Corinella Extension of dog off-leash areas.

It has been three years since the introduction of two legally designated dog off-leash areas – one in Coronet Bay and one in Corinella. The Coronet Bay dog off-leash zone is approximately 300 metres in length and the larger Corinella dog off-leash zone is reduced by almost half at high tide. For more info please go to It has become apparent, with the recent issue of a large number of official warnings and some fines given to normally law-abiding citizens, that these two designated off-leash spaces are insufficient. This is significant, given that the expansive beach stretching from the new boat ramp in Coronet Bay to Beach Street in Corinella is a distance of approximately 2.5 kms. It provides enough space to be enjoyed safely by all beach users. We, the residents and ratepayers of Coronet Bay, Corinella, nearby Waterline towns and visitors to these towns, respectfully petition the Bass Coast Shire Council to undertake community consultation on the following suggestions to improve the dog off-leash zones in Corinella and Coronet Bay: 1. Retain the Corinella shared horse/dog off-leash zone (currently from Hughes Street to O’Connor Road) 2. Establish a new dog-off leash zone between O’Connor Road and Norsemens Road 3. Retain the current, dog off-leash small area on the Coronet Bay beach 4. Expand designated off-leash areas for Coronet Bay so restrictions don’t apply when beaches are largely empty, outside the peak times of Christmas, New Year and Easter public holidays, 9am-6pm (similar to current off-leash restrictions for Inverloch).
