That's a joke!! Our local beach has a ban on dogs throughout the summer. It is very popular with Spanish families who come from Estepona or inland for the day with mum, dad, children, cousins, granny, auntie etc. and the family dog. I can't see a ruling from the JdA changing anything.
When it's very hot we walk our two dogs before sunrise, sometimes in the campo, sometimes on a small part of the beach we have to cross to get to a leafy quiet lane. No-one is around apart from a couple of fishermen, sometimes with their dogs. We do the same in the evenings around sunset. We take poo bags and the dogs are on leads. The police rarely come to the beach but when they do they ignore dogs.
It's the law so we observe it but I can't see many people doing that....
Our dogs run free in our garden....the law states they must be on a lead and muzzled in public places. Occasionally when there is no-one around at seven in the morning in the campo we'll let them off the lead but always with a close eye on them in case some early morning rambler rounds a corner and sees two large dogs approaching off the lead....
It's about being responsible and considerate, really.
Yes but unlike dogs they do not spend the bulk of the time (when away from their home) pissing over anything that doesn't move.Is there a ban on horses, I wonder? Our beach is a regular spot for local riders in summer and winter and they do not carry poo bags, or I suppose with horses it should be sacks.
In some countries I've lived in, both men and dogs piss freely in the street.Yes but unlike dogs they do not spend the bulk of the time (when away from their home) pissing over anything that doesn't move.
Now home many owners pick that up ?
