A Wellington vet has asked the city council to allow Wellingtonians to take their dogs on buses and trains.

The Wellington City Council is this week hearing oral submissions on its controversial Animal Bylaw and Dog Policy.

It includes plans to microchip cats and introduce more off-leash areas for dogs.

Wellington Vet Group's Allan Probert told councillors he wanted people to be able to take their pets on public transport.

He would also like to see more education on responsible dog ownership.
