Current state legislation in Victoria bans dogs from all indoor spaces where food (or drink of any kind) is served or consumed.


According to the law, dogs create a hygiene risk in pubs, yet there has not been a single incident where human illness has been caused by consumption of food contaminated by pathogens originating from an infected dog. We believe dogs should be allowed in indoor as well as outdoor spaces, provided they are kept away from areas where food is prepared or stored and subject to the policy of the owner of the business.
