Dogs of summer

If your best friend has four paws, loves walks and is furry, you know that summer means different walking schedules and locations.

From now until Saturday, March 31, dogs are not permitted on any Frankston City beach between 9.30am and 7.30pm. At all other times your dog must be on a leash when on a beach and you must carry plastic bags to collect your dog’s waste.

There are no free-roam areas for dogs on any Frankston or Seaford beach, but Frankston City Council has designated several reserves as free-roam areas where your pampered pooches can be exercised off-leash as long as they are under your effective control at all times. Some conditions do apply at these areas so make sure to read the signs, and visit for further information.

Animal management officers patrol our beaches and reserves daily - even on weekends and public holidays - and penalties may be issued to owners found in breach of the laws. Frankly Frankston applauds dog owners who do the right thing, and we know Santa will definitely have you on his ‘nice’ list!
