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,

    I would love to have my dog with me inside pubs! It means I won’t have to sit in the smoking area anymore.

    This change is well overdue. It’s a way of life in so many other countries.

    As long as your dog is well behaved and on a leash I can’t see any reason why they cant be allowed into beer gardens and certain sections of pubs. Common sense in England allows dogs in pubs. Why not here?
