Dog Friendly St Ives

We know that pet owners love to be able to bring their dog on holiday with them.  Whilst there are restrictions on dogs on bathing beaches in the summer months, there are plenty of lovely dog walking areas inland and around the coastline. St Ives is a dog friendly area for responsible dog owners and this is an area for the whole family to enjoy!

Beach restrictions:  There are seasonal restrictions from taking your dog onto Porthminster, Porthmeor, Harbour, Porthgwidden and Carbis Bay beaches.

Please note; It should be noted that the maps show the beaches at their biggest - at low tides. Beach areas do vary due to the tides that change regularly.

Dogs, particularly elderly ones, should be exercised in the early morning and late evening to avoid over-exertion in hot weather.  All dogs are required by law to wear a collar and tag bearing the name and address of the owner.  If you are on holiday, it is a good idea to have a temporary tag with your holiday address on it. 

Never leave you dog unattended in a vehicle, even for a short while as when it is warm or hot outside the temperature inside you car can double to that outside in 6 - 10 minutes.  Dogs will quickly suffer from heat exhaustion and could die.
