  • Who you are
  • Your location

Take your pooch for a mooch
around the beaches of Wales

Wales is blessed with plenty of year round dog friendly beaches, so there is no need to leave your dog behind when you next go on holiday in Wales.
Unless you have a particularly gifted dog that is able to clean up after themselves, please don't forget to take a bag or a pooper scooper with you to the beach. Failure to clean up after you dog could result in an unwelcome fine.
