Allow dogs into pubs

dogs_cropped.jpg

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,

    If dirty smelly kids are allowed in pubs; why not lovely fluffy dogs (no dangerous breeds though)

    Having dogs in our pubs is loved by locals and the community. It is amazing to watch the increase in interaction between people as they as hi to the dogs and each other. Strangers/neighbours that may not have said hello to each other chatting and coming together. Allowing dogs in pubs should be part of what we want our community hubs to be.

    It’s great some pubs are already doing this and would be terrific if it was available everywhere.

    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.
