Dog Centre - (19 members)

The Dog Centre was established as a dog and equestrian centre at Voortrekkerhoogte (Thaba Tswane) in 1964. A decade later the equestrian centre was moved to the farm Welgegund at Potchef-stroom. The dog centre moved to Bourke's Luck in the Eastern Transvaal (now Mpumalanga), in 1979. There dogs were trained for patrol, guard, sniffer and tracker duties. They proved a great success during the Angolan border war.
