Summer Adventures & Dog Beaches
We all enjoy spending time with the best friend, especially as it gets warmer. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Test the pavement/sand with your palm before commencing a walk. If you cannot hold your palm on the pavement/sand for more than 10 seconds do not head out. Wait till it cools down enough for your pooch’s paws.
- Carry water for you and your pooch – pick up a doggy water bottle or a handy travel water bowl.
- If it’s too hot for you, then it is probably too hot for them. Early morning or late evenings would be more suitable times to head out.
- Dogs with pink skin showing need sunblock too – pick up some doggy sunscreen.
- Snake dangers – be aware of your surroundings, especially near water and bushland.
Dog Beaches in Perth:
Check your local council’s website for further information and details about each beach before you head out.
While enjoying the beach life, remember;
- Take plenty of water with you
- Poop bags – clean up after your best friend
- Leash, collar and beach toy
- Be mindful of those around you; if you do not have full control of your dog off lead please keep them on lead or put them on the lead when approaching or being approached by another dog on a lead.
