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 take my dog everywhere I can. It will be great to take him to more pubs. In the US and South America I’ve seen dogs on planes and public transport. It makes life so much easier and most dogs are very well behaved. It would be great to have it at the publican’s discretion. Obviously away from food but that’s easily managed. Dogs are better behaved in pubs than kids.

    The sky hasn’t fallen in Europe with dogs in pubs nor in restaurants, nor trains etc. Kids are still breathing & I hear adults are still laughing and enjoying life.

    (& Rabies is still a thing there , obviously most dogs are well socialised)

    Let the owners of establishments decide as to their customer base. Their business, their decision.

    The nanny state is getting very annoying.
