We took the opportunity to inform the WA Minister for Local Government and ask what progress was being made with the review of the Dog Act in WA.
The following response was received in March -
.a similar amendment to Section 33 of the Dog Act 1976 is also proposed for Western Australia. This amendment will provide flexibility to allow retired greyhounds that have successfully undertaken a retraining program to be exempt from the muzzling requirement.
To ensure that the current proposed amendments remain appropriate, early this year I intend to request Cabinet's approval to draft a Green Bill.
