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 understand the need to restrict them to certain areas but why not just have dog friendly indoor and outdoor areas like we have for kids

    It is ridiculous that dogs are not allowed in our pubs – everywhere else in the world that is the case.

    It’s not just pubs, but how about public transport too. I ended up buying a car because of the difficulties with dogs on public transport. Additionally, why aren’t cats subject to the same restrictions as dogs when they’re outdoors?

    Our dogs are part of our families these days. Please let us bring them to pubs with us. More people would go to pubs if they could take their fur babies with them!

    I’m in support of allowing the pub proprietors to be given the right to make own decisions about their premises with regard to dogs being allowed inside. It would be nice to be able to bring the pups from time to time.

    It’ll be great to be able to bring our pooch with us. After all he’s part of the family.
