Bernese Friends Worldwide Walk, Melbourne Australia

April 23, 2017, 10:00am - April 22, 2017, 10:00pm

Darebin Parklands, Alphington

**Bernese Friends Worldwide Melbourne Walk 2017** Get your walking shoes on …this one is not to be missed ! This year the Melbourne Bernese Friends Worldwide Walk will be held on Sunday 23rd April starting at 10am at Darebin Parklands in Alphington, Melbourne, Australia. The walk is being hosted on behalf of Bernese Friends Worldwide by Tracey (some of you may know her as the co-ordinator of the monthly walks for the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Vic). The last Melbourne walk hosted by the BMDCV was held in Kew and attracted over 75 Bernese in terrible conditions (think rain and hail !) This year we have all our fingers and toes crossed for better weather and have an absolutely stunning venue for you to enjoy. Darebin Parklands is 33 hectares of beautiful green open space along a winding creek with big lagoons for the dogs to go swimming. Join us afterwards for a picnic in the park where we will have some super cool doggy merchandise for sale, free giveaways and something super special – Professional Photographers who will be capturing the day for us. The event is open to all owners of Bernese Mountain Dogs and their buddies. If you are not currently a member of the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Vic, we have an awesome offer for you – Join up prior to, or on the day of the walk and not only will you get a free gift, you will also get next years membership included ! Just write WWW 2017 on your application form. Come along and see why it great to be a member of the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Vic – great people, beautiful dogs and lots of fun times. Membership gives you access to our Members Forum where you can share stories and ask questions to fellow Bernese owners, come along to monthly walks, grooming lessons, our hugely popular Christmas Party, Bernese Fun Days and maybe even have the opportunity to join our Bernese Showcase at the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show ! We are so excited and can’t wait to see you there…

Dear Exhibitors,

There was a glitch with Easy Dog Entries which they have now rectified and we can now announce that online entries are OPEN! :)
