Got a problem dog? Ask for help from one of our Instructors. We have trained volunteer instructors who will be able to help you with all of your problems.

It's Raining Is Training On?
Normally training sessions are not cancelled due to rain. Marchant Park does not seem to get the same weather you may experience at home. In fact some members call the park a Weather Vortex as it can be raining across the road but be fine on the grounds.
If it has been raining consistently all day or for the past few days training will be cancelled.
While your instructors recommend training in all weather conditions, Warehouse Cricket Association must consider the upkeep of the grounds and a soggy paddock is very easy to damage. In drizzly weather you may need to wear your wet weather gear and remember to bring a towel to rub down your canine companion at the end of the night. Training will continue as normal.
Where possible, cancellations will be posted on the facebook page at
