Summer restrictions for dogs are once again in force on Jersey
The restrictions mean that if you take your dog(s) on the beach
between the hours of 10.30am and 6pm they must be kept on a
lead. Horses also may not be ridden on the beach between these
The Policing of Beaches Regulations were amended in 1989 to
restrict dogs and horses on the beaches between 1st May and 30th
September. Dog owners must also clean up after their dog and
this applies not only to all beaches but also to parks and other
public areas, including roads and pavements, with the litter
being disposed of in one of the many waste receptables provided
around the Island. It is also an offence to dispose of plastic
bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptable. A
fine of up to £500 can be imposed on those who do not clean up
after their dog.
