Allow dogs into pubs

I'm proposing an amendment to current laws to give the owners of pubs the right to decide whether dogs are allowed into their indoor areas. 

More information about dogs in pubs here

Please sign our petition to ask the Premier of NSW to support my legislation allowing pub proprietors to decide if dogs are allowed into pubs.

Dear Premier,

Dog-friendly pubs are a key ingredient of the charm and unique atmosphere in many places in NSW.

The ability to bring a well behaved dog into their establishment is a key driver of custom for many pubs and hotels.

We believe that there’s a strong argument for changing these restrictive laws to allow pub proprietors to have the right to welcome dogs into their establishments, as they can in the UK and parts of Europe.

Please support the proposed changes to the Companion Animals Act to help pubs in NSW become more dog-friendly if they choose to do so.

Yours sincerely,

    Having grown up with dogs in the UK and always heading off on walks which often ended up having a cold beer in the pub with my furry friend, it is frustrating that Australia does not think the same.

    My dog is my child and I have trained her to behave in public so she can hangout at the pub with me. She is better behaved the most children in public.

    Dogs are social glue in an increasingly alienated society.

    Please, Decision Makers, please help people form all important social bonds by being able to take their dogs into pubs. Why should NSW be so retrograde in this respect; in the US and Europe, dogs are welcome in so many places and it really makes for a wonderfully inclusive atmosphere.

    Yours In Hope,

    Melissa
