Club Ground Rules

Although we try to avoid regimentation and encourage informality, these rules have been laid down to make training sessions more enjoyable for us all and to keep within Council By-Laws, Caboolture Sports Club Constitution and Dogs Queensland code of ethics and rules.
  • Dogs must be on a lead at ALL times unless specifically requested by the instructor during an exercise.
  • Should your dog foul on the grounds; it is your responsibility to clean it up. The MBRC provides disposable bags for this purpose.
  • Bitches "in season" (on heat) should be left at home. They distract other dogs, particularly males, and cause disruption to classes. Handlers are welcome to attend classes without their dog to observe and hopefully pick up some helpful hints to continue training at home.
  • It is recommended that you do NOT feed your dog before training. It is difficult for them to work on a full stomach and they are more alert if they are waiting for food.
  • Children are the responsibility of their parents and MUST be supervised at all times.
  • Children training dogs on the grounds must be at least 12 years of age and be able to physically control their dog.
  • Enclosed footwear must be worn while training on the grounds.
  • No parking on the grounds on Monday nights.
  • All members please respect a dog's personal space and do not go up close with you own dog.
  • Cruelty or rough handling of dogs will not be tolerated while on Club Grounds. Penalties can be applied and may result in disciplinary action.

  • All members must conduct themselves in a polite and sportsmanlike manner and with integrity at all club event and in any related activities including while training on Club Grounds.
  • Any alleged threatening or abusive behaviour, whether verbal or physical could result in disciplinary action and suspension of membership.
