You must comply with this code if you intend to own, keep, breed or train greyhounds within the ACT. This code provides standards for maintaining the welfare of greyhounds intended for racing. Greyhound racing is banned in the ACT, however greyhounds can be kept and trained for racing elsewhere.
The code is intended to ensure that racing greyhounds that are kept in the ACT are provided with care that maximises their long term health and well-being, and are protected from pain, distress, danger, illness and injury. Additionally, this code aims to prevent the euthanasia of unwanted racing greyhounds.
