Dogs on the beach at Dawlish Warren

Dogs on the beach

Dawlish Warren is a dog friendly area but please follow the signs and pick up after your dog - there are plenty of bins!

In the summer it can get very hot so do consider if your pet will actually enjoy the trip to the beach?  If it is convenient it may be better to leave your dog at home, but NEVER in a car.  (Have you ever tried sitting in a car on a warm day with the window down just a few inches?)

There is a "Dog Walking" leaflet on the right so please take a look at it as it has a simple map of exactly when and where you can take your dog.

On this page you can see samples of the signs that are placed strategically at our resort - please observe them and in that way everyone can enjoy their day out!  (Remember that not everyone loves dogs as much as you do...)

From 1st April 2019 there are new rules in force to help reduce irresponsible dog ownership

You can be fined if your dog is out of control in public or you do not pick up after it.

If you ignore a Public Space Protection Order you can be fined:

  • £100 on the spot (a fixed penalty notice)
  • up to £1,000 if it goes to court
