Dog Friendly Swansea and Gower.
Buddy’s Doodle Guide to having doggie fun in Swansea and Gower

Hello!  My Name is Buddy.  I am a miniature Golden Doodle.  I am one year old and I am lucky enough to live in Swansea near the gorgeous coastline.  I love nothing more than running along one of the beaches, splashing in the surf and exploring the rock pools.  If I am lucky, I find some other friendly dogs who will play my favourite game of ‘chase me chase me – now I’ll chase you’
If you are thinking of visiting my part of the world, you will have a great time at any time of year.  I hope my guide will help you get the most out of your visit.

Beaches
The beaches in Gower and Swansea are wonderful for great days out with your dog.  The opportunities are extensive with beautiful sandy beaches and coastal paths with stunning views, as well as a promenade, which stretches from the Swansea city centre to Mumbles.  In addition you could choose one of the attractive parks or countryside walks.
There are so many beaches around the Swansea and Gower Coastline, that your main challenge is where to choose!!   The following guide can help you decide by giving you our views and Buddy’s experiences.

What is most important to you - easy access, great views, lack of crowds, good surfing or swimming or a real adventure?  We hope we can give you the information you need:

The Gower Peninsula is a very popular destination for dog-owners, with many of its beaches allowing year-round access for dogs. These include Rhossili, voted the UK's No. 1 dog-friendly beach by The Times.

Please keep your dog on a lead at:

1. The entire promenade around Swansea Bay (from the River Tawe to the Knab Rock Car Park in Mumbles)
2. The promenade at Langland Bay and Rotherslade
3. The promenade at Caswell Bay (including the cliff path)

Collars and tags
Dogs in public places must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner attached. If you are holidaying in Swansea, you may find it useful to have a temporary collar for your dog, with your holiday address on it. Microchipping is not a legal requirement, but it helps the Local Authority contact you if your dog is impounded. If you have lost your dog, please contact City & County of Swansea as soon as possible on 01792 635 600.

Dog fouling
The City & County of Swansea has installed over 400 dog waste disposal bins and, in some areas, poop scoop dispensers. Dog owners who allow their animals to foul, without cleaning up, risk a fixed penalty notice of £75. Please help keep Swansea Bay clean and use the bins provided for your dog. If you have any queries, contact the City & County of Swansea Environment Department on 01792 635 600, or email evh@swansea.gov.uk.
