    Talking Dog friendly places to go while on holiday!

    Hi all!!! So my partner and I are going away this Christmas too ocean grove we have our acc sorted but we need some help with where we can take them for swims and etc. I noticed on the map that there's a lake does anyone know if its swimming friendly for humans and doggies or which beaches are swimming friends for around this time of year
    So any recommendations for dog friendly beaches, lakes, restaurants, pubs, cafes in and around ocean grove would be awesome!!
    Thanks

    I don't even know where "ocean grove" is.

    Sometimes finding out what council area it's in, and looking up their website or calling them can help you find dog friendly places.

    However Bathurst council recommended a dog off leash area that was completely unsuitable for me and my dog - ie surrounded on all sides by busy roads, no fences and not a lot bigger than 4 tennis courts. Er - that's just asking for trouble. Especially with a dog that freaks out in traffic.

    I have a book somewhere called "holidaying with dogs" which is good at listing friendly accomodation. But I will be making a list of council recommended places between Adelaide and Brisbane via Canberra, Sydney and Newcastle - cos I'm doing a big trip soon too. I will probably aslo make a list of friendly vets - just in case we get ticks too.

    Just be mindfull of snakes when selecting area's to let your dog run free down that way - sorry i have no idea where good doggy spots are, but as the two posts above say, find out what council area it is and contact them, they should be able to point you to where you can go

    I find that google answers these questions. I just type in "off-leash beach xxxxx" with xxxxx being the area I'm planning to go to. This usually returns local council maps of the dog friendly beaches in that area.
