The dog friendly beach was West Wittering, West Sussex. The only bit that dogs are not allowed are in front of the beach huts.


BiL's dad lives at W Wittering and is on that beach about 6 times a day with his young black lab, Eve. Sometimes he has BiL's black lab, too.

BiL is always telling us how great it is but it's probably over an hour's drive from us.

Tbh, the lakies aren't all that great on beaches. Although they love a mad run on the sand, Django doesn't like water and Lola tries to bite the waves and ends up making herself sick by ingesting salt water.

Camber Sands just east of Rye in E Sx is good for dogs, they're allowed on over half the beach.

After reading the rest of the thread I have learned a couple of things or reinforced others.
One post inflames a situation which shouldn't have happened. OP was asking for advice and took on board what she heard. Brilliant, success on a dog friendly beach.

A very provocative post was made which shouldn't have been made, this thread WASN'T the right place. By all means, have your opinions but vent them on an appropriate thread. Re-tell all your findings on a thread which asked for statistics. No one is berating you for not liking dogs but they are for almost aggressive and argumentative nature you displayed. I have found since I brought Stanley home, there are restrictions, there are also people scared of dogs, if we come across any people who are afraid, especially in a local recreational space, (Otley Chevin anyone who uses it knows it's used for walking, cycling, dog walking, off road running) he goes on a lead and is told to 'down' but being 3/4 spaniel, he needs a good run about.

I have learned on here there are some good web-sites which I hadn't heard of (being a newish dog owner). Brilliant, Doggity will be downloaded soon. The beaches I went on and actively seek out are dog friendly, in Whitby its the beyond the beach huts and is really the superior end, and if the tides out, a walk to Sandsend is a good option. In Devon, the two mile stretch between Woolacombe and Putsborough. Again nothing but sand and dunes and waves. Away from screaming kids and argumentative families. I have found Stanley reacts to kids screaming and wants to go play with them, especially if they have a ball. I also carry around a good supply of dog poo bags and a second bag. If I'm on a beach, I clear up the poo, knot the bag and place that bag inside a small bag which makes it less unpleasant carry feaces around.

Above anything else is, the OP had a fab time. A successful camp and noted the anti social behaviour was that of the adults. Go figure eh?

Oh and I was bitten by an old english sheepdog when I was 8. So I am not speaking from an 'uninjured' point of view.

Hi, I camp away with my dogs all the time (Lookup 'Flyball') and many of us use netting around the tent.

Hi Jackuk,

Are you going to the Champs?
