Well behaved dogs are welcome all year round at Studland Beach.

To make sure everyone enjoys themselves, there are restrictions in some areas at certain times of year, please follow the coloured paw print code displayed on flags:

  • Green dogs are welcome off lead
  • Amber dogs are welcome on a lead
  • Red dogs on a lead welcome before 10am and after 6pm

The restrictions apply mainly in busy areas during the summer months. There are always areas of beach where your dog is welcome, but Fido may need to be on the lead. If you want to go walkies off the lead, there is a route available all year round marked by green paw prints.
