Nominations for the 8th Annual Awards are now open.




Help us to promote responsible breeding, pet ownership and standards in canine care. This is a great way to show appreciation to those who have demonstrated standards in service and behaviour in all things canine

The MDBA Dog Owners Choice Awards (DOCA) are designed to give dog owners the opportunity to nominate, to recognize and to honour excellence in all areas associated with dog ownership.

The Awards provide an opportunity for all those involved in any activity or service with dogs to be acknowledged for their achievements and commitments to canine well being. It is about standards of service and ethics, but most importantly, what makes these awards unique is that the focus is on the people and what they do and not on the achievements of the dogs. Most nominations come via, puppy/dog buyers, customers/clients and peers.

You must be nominated or nominate someone you believe to be worthy of recognition, reflection and reward for their contribution.

Awards are open to all members and non members of the MDBA and nominations close 31.1.15. Winners announced and Awards and prizes to be presented in Melbourne during May  2015.
