Over 300 DFS players were given an insider’s look at the Western Bulldogs’ headquarters at the Whitten Oval, on Sunday.
As a part of the Elite Summer Training Program, players had the opportunity to train and tour the training base of an AFL club.
After previous visits to the Hawks, Collingwood and Essendon, Dynamic Footy Skills were given an invaluable insight at the Doggies spiritual home in Footscray.

Young Bulldog star Marcus Bontempelli was on hand to share the story of his first year in AFL footy and give a guided tour of the Doggies inner sanctum – from the meeting theatre to the gym.
Just like the professionals it wasn’t all team meetings inside, as players completed a challenging session out on the same track where the Western Bulldogs have begun a gruelling pre-season.
DFS Coaching Director Adrian Talarico said the day was a great success.
“Everyone at DFS were grateful to the Doggies and Marcus for opening the doors for our guys and girls,” he said.
“The players got a great work out on the track but were rewarded when they got to check out the Doggies facilities. They loved it.”
