As the weather warms up, Britain’s beaches become a popular hotspot for families – and their pets.
Here’s everything you need to know to take your angry friend to any UK beach this year.
Are dogs allowed on UK beaches?
If you’re thinking of taking your angry friends to the beach for a walk in the sand or a dip in the sea, the good news is – yes, dogs are allowed on UK beaches.
However, some local governments impose a dog ban year-round, restricting when dogs can visit beaches or certain areas.
The restrictions prohibit dogs from visiting the beach during peak season – with some bans starting as early as April and lasting through September.
It’s important to check that the beach you’re visiting has a PSPO (Public Space Protection Order) order – if you and your pet are found on a beach where these restrictions are enforced you could be fined between Calculate £100 and £1,000.
These no dog zones are enforced to ensure everyone can enjoy the UK’s beaches and coastline during the high season.
However, the rules of a public space protection regulation do not apply to a person who is registered as blind.
It also does not apply to a person with a disability that affects their mobility, manual dexterity, physical coordination, or ability to lift, carry, or otherwise move everyday objects.
Those supported by a dog trained by a prescribed charity need not worry about the restrictions.
Where are the dog friendly UK beaches?
If you’re looking for a dog-friendly beach for you and your four-legged friend, you can enjoy any of these UK hotspots all year round.
From sandy beaches to coastal cliff walks, the UK has a range of dog-friendly beaches for you and your wild friend to enjoy.
Are dogs allowed in the sea?
If your four-legged friend feels like a dip in the sea, they’re free to play in the open water – but it’s important to keep their safety in mind.
Drinking salt water can give your dog an uncomfortable bout of sickness and in some cases cause them to become seriously ill or dehydrated.
Although swimming is great exercise for dogs and a refreshing way to cool them down after a day in the sun, the sea can be very unpredictable.
The safest way for your angry friend to take a dip and splash is to find out about currents in advance, check the tides, and look out for signs and flags warning you not to swim at the beach.
