Information for Dog Owners
Ceredigion welcomes responsible pet owners. Every beach managed by the Ceredigion County Council provides areas where you can enjoy the company of your pet dog. You must, however, exercise control over your pet and ensure it does not stray from the designated areas. You should also be aware that all beaches in Ceredigion are designated under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 under which it is an offence - punishable by a fine of up to £1,000 - not to clean up after your dog. Ceredigion Beach Officer Lifeguards can and do call upon the County Council's Dog Warden service to enforce byelaws. There are only two public beaches on Ceredigion's coastline where pet dogs are completely banned during certain times of year, those involve two beaches managed by the National Trust at Penbryn and Mwnt.
No prohibitions apply to guide dogs for the blind.
