Guide and assistance dogs are no ordinary dogs and the law recognises this.
For instance, although dogs are not normally allowed in shops or taxis, the law says that a guide or assistance dog user is entitled to have their dog with them at all times. This means that they can bring their dog with them into any place normally open to the public, such as a shop, restaurant, café, bank or office. Guide and assistance dogs are also allowed on public transport, including in taxis.
It’s not only discrimination, but also a criminal offence, to separate a someone from their guide or assistance dog.
