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,

    Dogs are part of the family and should be allowed to stay with their owners provided they are clean and well behaved

    About time.

    Of course the companion animals act is too draconian – this is NSW where individuals are thought by the govt to be unable to take responsibility for themselves.

    Many other aspects of this act should be looked at also.

    So many restaurants and cafes allow dogs, so why not pubs?
