On Thursday 24th August, from 10.30am, the LOVEmyBEACH team will be setting out on our first ever dog friendly coastal walk.
We’ll be highlighting some of the best spots to walk your dog along the Fylde coast, pointing out the areas to avoid from May to September and explaining why there are restrictions in place.
The walk will start at The Solaris Centre (Blackpool, FY4 1RW, parking available) last approximately 1 hour and cover about 2 miles of the coastline.
Additionally at the events start and end point (Solaris Centre) the Dogs Trust will be attendance to offer free advice to dog owners as well as health checks, micropchipping and nail clipping. No appointments are required.
Please join us with your furry friend! No booking necessary but it would be great to know how many people will be attending so, if possible, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: Dogs should be under control at all times and kept on leads in locations where stated.
More information from the Dogs Trust:
Veterinary nurses will be attending to carry out basic health checks including nail clipping, and they will check eyes, ears, teeth and weight, to make sure your dog is happy, fit and healthy. Alongside the health check, our team will provide advice on diet, training and neutering. Each owner will be provided with a responsible dog ownership pack, including handy tips and useful resources for you to continue to use at home. Free goodie packs also available for puppy owners and those who are thinking of getting a puppy. Extra goodie packs available for those wanting to learn how to stay healthy with their dog.
The Dogs Trust team also offer free on-the-spot microchipping for dogs that aren’t yet chipped (microchipping is a legal requirement as of April 2016). We can also advise you about changing your microchip details should it be needed.
The Dogs Trust team welcome all breeds of dogs, whether a pup or an adult, however Dogs Trust will not chip active hunting hounds or litters of puppies. We ask that puppies under 6 months old are fully vaccinated and proof of vaccinations are brought along to the event. If your puppy has recently been vaccinated, they must be carried for the 10 days following their final vaccination. Dogs over 6 months old do not require proof of vaccination.
