FURTHER CANCELLATION OF ALL DOGS NSW EVENTS AND CLOSURE OF GROUNDS UNTIL TUESDAY 30 JUNE 2020 INCLUSIVE
07-04-2020

Although the number of new cases in New South Wales continues to stabilise and even decline, it is important for everyone to continue to practise social distancing, self-isolation and maintain good hygiene practices until the NSW Government advises that the social distancing policy has been lifted.

In accordance with the previous decision of the DOGS NSW Board of Directors, the cancellation of all DOGS NSW approved events as a result of COVID-19 has been reviewed.

Following that review, the Board of Directors has determined that all DOGS NSW approved events be cancelled until Tuesday 30 June 2020, inclusive, except in the case where the NSW Government rescinds the social distancing policy to the extent that events may resume prior to that date.  In this eventuation, DOGS NSW will endeavour to assist all Affiliates to assume normal activities as soon as possible.  In some instances, this may involve giving Affiliates exemption, to some regulations, in order to expedite normal activities.

Subsequently, and as DOGS NSW will not be producing a May Gazette as the production of the Gazette has been suspended until further notice, for those Affiliates who have paid for an Advertisement for the May Gazette, the Office will contact you to arrange a credit for both the Advertisement fee and the Draft Schedule fee.

For Affiliates who have paid for their Advertisement and Draft Schedules and their Advertisement has been published in a previous Gazette but their event has been cancelled, the Office will contact you shortly to discuss a 50% discount on your next Advertisement.

 Affiliates are still required to continue to submit Draft Schedules for their future events, however, the Office will not take payment or process those Draft Schedules until the social distancing policy is rescinded.

Affiliates who opt to cancel events outside of this period MUST advise DOGS NSW in the first instance. 

  • CANCELLATION OF ALL DOGS NSW EVENTS AND CLOSURE OF GROUNDS UNTIL TUESDAY 30 JUNE 2020 INCLUSIVE.

  • MAY GAZETTE CANCELLED - CREDITS APPLY FOR NEXT LODGED DRAFT SCHEDULE.

  • GAZETTE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

  • AFFILIATES TO CONTINUE TO SUBMIT DRAFT SCHEDULES FOR EVENTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REGULATIONS OUTSIDE OF 30 JUNE 2020.

  • DOGS NSW MUST BE ADVISED OF AFFILIATES VOLUNTARY EVENT CANCELLATIONS.
