Dogs on Ferries

Petitioner: Cr Simon Menzies | Member: Wilson, Felicity | No. of Signatories: 4,903 | Date closed: 25/08/2021
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, Sydney Ferries currently allow dogs on ferries when the dog is contained within a box, crate, basket etc. Such an rule is both onerous and unnecessary. It acts as a deterrent to the use of an essential service. It doesn't meet community expectations of Sydney being a dog friendly city. This petition calls for a relaxation of the rules and Sydney Ferries to take a more dog friendly approach to the provision of services. This petition proposes that the existing "box" rule be replaced with a rule that allowing dogs on ferries when wearing a dog collar and dog lead and traveling within an an area of the ferry to be designated by the vessels captain.
