Dogs on the Beach

Dog-on-beach

Dogs are welcome on most beaches and areas of the Northern Pegasus Bay coastal strip. However to protect ecological values and bird habitat around the Ashley River/Rakahuri estuary and wetlands, dogs are not allowed in that area.

Here are some other key things you need to know before exercising your dog at the beach:

  • Dogs are not allowed in the areas between surf patrol flags or within 50 metres of the flags
  • Dogs must be under continuous and effective control at all times
  • Dogs which are unable to be under effective voice control around horses must be on a leash
  • Carry plenty of poo bags to pick up after your dog
