New regulation allows dogs on Getxo beaches at established times

From next June 1, the owners of dogs in Getxo They will be able to enjoy taking their pets to certain beaches in the municipality during the summer season, thanks to a modification in the municipal ordinance on the possession and protection of animals. This new regulation allows access for dogs from 20:00 p.m. to 09:30 a.m. the next day, thus ensuring that dogs can enjoy the beach during the hours when there is no lifeguard service.

Limitations and expectations regarding the new regulations

Although the measure has been welcomed by many, it is not applied in all areas. Dogs will not have access to the beaches of Gorrondatxe in Azkorri or La Bola, due to environmental concerns. On the other hand, during the winter months, the restrictions will be even fewer, since dogs will be able to access the beaches without time limitations, except in restricted areas.

This regulatory change has generated positive expectations among residents and regular visitors to Getxo's beaches, who have expressed their satisfaction at being able to share more quality time outdoors with their pets. The measure, the result of a budget agreement between the PNV, PSE and the PP, seeks to promote a harmonious and respectful coexistence between all users of public spaces, promoting the civic and responsible use of beaches.
