Where can a Guide Dog go?

When a Guide Dog is in a harness, it is working and assisting the person with low vision to move around safely and independently.

A person using a harnessed Guide Dog is allowed entry into all public places. It is an offence to deny or charge a fee for the entry of a Guide Dog. Police and other authorised officers can issue on-the-spot fines or take further summary action on any violation of these access rights.

How to interact with a person and their Guide Dog

It takes a lot of concentration for a person with low vision to work safely with their Guide Dog. Please don’t pat, feed or otherwise distract the Guide Dog when it is working.

Ask first if the person needs assistance. People who use Guide Dogs have been trained in the most effective ways to control their dog’s behaviour, so please only provide assistance if it is requested.
