Dog Holidays

Pembrokeshire is very much a dog friendly holiday destination. With over 50 beaches and hundreds of miles of footpaths and open spaces, dogs and their owners can enjoy a great holiday together.

Dogs enjoy romping on the beach as much as children, but on busy beaches there are restrictions during the period from 1st May to 30th September. The coast footpath is fully open to dogs but owners are asked to keep their dogs under control. If walking in the Preseli Mountains, please keep dogs on a lead especially if any sheep or cattle are in the area.
