About Us

The Guide, Hearing and Assistance Dogs Act 2009 came into effect on 1 July 2009 and was amended effective from 6 December 2013 to include places of accommodation. The legislation ensures that every person who relies on a guide, hearing or assistance dog has the same access rights as others to public places, public passenger vehicles and places of accommodation. This includes cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, sports venues, taxis, buses, private rental arrangements and holiday accommodation.
