Porthmeor Beach in Cornwall among the best dog-friendly in the UK
The UK has an abundance of wonderful beaches to take your pooch to on a staycation honeymoon or mini-moon, and the team at dog-friendly Canine Cottages has collated the six best dog-friendly beaches across Britain - with Porthmeor Beach in Cornwall being one of the best. Porthmeor Beach, located in the popular hotspot of St Ives, is the pawfect place to take a pooch off-season, as dogs are allowed on the beach from 30th September until 15th May.
Canine Cottages also reveal some top tips for keeping dogs safe at the beach all year round:
*Always remember to bring water and food for your dog. On a hot day, your furry friend will use plenty of energy and therefore need food and water to keep its energy levels stable
*Never leave your dog alone, especially in a hot car. Leaving your dog alone also increases the risk of dog-napping, so taking your pooch with you is always the safest option!
*Go on walks during the mornings and evenings, as these are the safest times during a hot day to let your dog get some exercise. Choosing to do this during the middle part of the day can cause your pooch to overheat on a warm day.
*Keep track of the tides and currents in the area you're walking in.
*Check that the beach is dog friendly before you visit.
