Dog Adventures – Sydney
Looking for a new spot to adventure with your beloved dog? Pet Insurance Australia has researched the best areas to adventure to this weekend.
Before you head out it’s important to abide by the rules of the area and read where your pet is allowed and where they are not. Picking up after your dog is also important, so ensure you have plenty of poo bags and that you dispose of them correctly. Keeping the area clean will ensure these great spots are available for dogs to enjoy for many years to come.
Training and behaviour is also very important. Your dog must have a strong recall command and not exhibit any aggressive behaviours to keep these areas open to pets. Please abide by all the rules and regulations and read signage as rules may have changed since print.
Bayview – Rowland & Bayview Reserve
This is a very popular spot for off-leash fans. A great area for running and playing with a large grassy area for dogs and plenty of sand to dig in.
Bundeena – Horderns’ Beach
Hordern’s Beach does have a few rules when it comes to off-leash dogs. From May to August your dog is allowed to roam off-leash all week at any time. However from September to April Dogs can be on leash 24 hours Monday to Friday, but are prohibited Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays. They can be off-leash before 8:30am and after 4:30pm Monday to Friday. Please check the signage and ensure you follow the rules and regulations of this great doggy spot.
