Guide, hearing and assistance dogs

The Guide, Hearing and Assistance Dogs Act 2009 came into effect on 1 July 2009.

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 and public passenger vehicles. This includes cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, sports venues, taxis and buses.

About guide, hearing and assistance dogs legislation

A guide dog, hearing dog or assistance dog is specially trained to perform specific physical tasks and behaviours to assist a person with a disability and reduce their need for support.

Companion Animal is not an Assistance Animal

The Federal Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) provides protection for everyone in Australia against discrimination based on disability. The DDA applies directly to discrimination because a person is accompanied by a guide dog, hearing dog or other animal trained to alleviate the effects of a person's disability.

However, the Australian Human Rights Commission has confirmed that a companion animal is not an "assistance animal" for the purposes of the DDA:

"The fact that an animal is house trained or has had obedience training is not likely to be sufficient for this purpose."
