We love to welcome dogs in Wyre but we have to think about our other beach users too therefore dogs are banned from beaches with bathing waters from 1 May until 30 September each year because not only is it unpleasant for people wanting to swim and paddle to find dog mess in the sea, but the bacteria can cause the sea water to fail water testing:
Fleetwood beach from the east side, of the slipway opposite to the end of Promenade Road eastwards to the west side of the site of the former Fleetwood pier.
Cleveleys beach from Cafe Cove to Wyre Borough boundary.
When you’re out walking your dog, please help by picking up your dog’s poo and putting it in a bin. Please check signs and only walk your dog in designated dog-friendly areas to help protect water quality and beaches. You may be fined if you don’t remove your dog’s poo.
