Dog Walking Code


  • Please clean up after your dog to keep the beach safe and clean for other users. It is illegal not to clean up in every public place in Thanet.  This is rigourously enforced with fixed Penalty Notices of £50 and dog owners can be prosecuted and fined up to £1,000 .  Over 100 people have fallen 'foul' of the law, so please clean up!
  • Follow the Thanet Dog By-laws
    Dogs are banned from some of Thanet's beaches during the summer. Please obey the signs on the beaches or check the details at Visitor Information Centres or Thanet Council offices.  The maximum penalty for failing to obey the Dog By-laws is £500
