Code of Practice for the Operation of Greyhound Establishments
This State Government of Victoria Code is made under the provisions of Section 59 of Division 4 of the Domestic Animals Act 1994 (“the Act”) and applies to all Greyhound Establishments that are considered to be a Domestic Animal Business under this Act.
Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) has adopted this Code of Practice as its policy for the minimum standards for all participants.
This means that it doesn’t make a difference whether or not you make a profit or operate as a hobby or commercial enterprise, the Code of Practice for the Operation of Greyhound Establishments will apply to you if you are:
- A Domestic Animal Business (requiring you to be registered with your local council), or
- A greyhound participant (the Code of Practice is GRV’s minimum standard).
