Peasholm Dog Beach in Scarborough is an ideal location for pooches and people to splash in the salty water and socialise. The 300m track between the dunes is a bit of a workout but provides peace of mind that your dog is far from traffic and can frolic safely. A thoughtfully placed water station just before the beach provides a great opportunity to refill water bottles and make sure your furry friend is hydrated at the dog height fountain. For maximum enjoyment, plan this walk in the morning or afternoon when it's not too hot. It is also important to keep your dog on the track and be wary of snakes from the shrubs, especially during the warmer months.
The beach is wide and open with plenty of space to play fetch in or out of the water. Floating toys such as frisbees or tennis balls are ideal. From a tiny Papillon to a big fluffy Newfoundland, there is enough space for all sized dogs to bound along the sand until their heart's content. It is also a good location for younger dogs to socialise with their own kind and learn to play and behave. It is also important that beachgoers are responsible and use bags and bins provided to dispose of their dog's droppings so that everyone has a pleasant experience.

The beach is also human-friendly and many children and adults splash in the ocean with their pets. Taking a beach umbrella or shade sail is a good idea though as there are no shade facilities. Sunscreen is a must.
Before you put your pooch in your car, you can clean him or her off at a wash station located to the right of the car park. Some people also use eco-friendly dog soap at this point to save washing them at home and so their pet is feeling fresh and soft. Your furry friend will definitely enjoy a visit to Peasholm Dog Beach!
