Dogtember 2021 at the famous iconic Saltdean Lido Brighton

What better way than to join the fun of the Dogtember 2021 at the famous iconic Saltdean Lido, Brighton.

Enjoy a splash around with your dog for 90 minutes in dog event sessions at weekends during September at the famous Saltdean Lido, the 1938 famous art deco landmark close to Brighton & Hove beach, East Sussex, UK.

Buy a ticket for yourself before buying a ticket for your dog who can swim with you, or can enjoy splashing around in the water, whilst you play ball from the side. However, this water swim session is not really suitable water swim sessions for those dogs that aren’t sociable, prone to snapping and downright horrible to others!

Dogtember runs through September 2021, 90 minute sessions, tickets can be booked now along with the full information online for entry.

Perfect if your dog already loves the water or a great way to try out a new venture before you book your next staycation or weekend break near lakes, rivers, beaches and other waterways.

Commencing Saturday 11th September, am and pm sessions, running through Saturdays and Sundays and sponsored by Yora Pet Foods, the sustainable pet food company.

Open to dog owners aged 16 and over, with lifeguards present able to rescue humans (sadly not your dog).

If your planning your dog to attend you’ll need to book a ticket now We Got Tickets and you can read more at Saltdean Lido page. See more pictures by The Argus of the fun dog packed day.

Where is Saltdean?

If you know Saltdean Lido then you’ll know it’s nestled down between East and West Saltdean on the main A259 coast road, just a short drive out of Brighton heading towards Newhaven, East Sussex, where there’s handy parking, lots of green grass areas available and the English Channel opposite.

Saltdean has mostly a pebbly beach but as the high tides goes out, some shingle and sandy patches emerge providing you and your dog with a nice game of ball and easier dog walking.

Make A Day Out At Brighton Beaches Afterwards

Saltdean underpass walk has a great eatery open most days, and the underpass allows you to walk in comfort, like a promenade, through to Rottingdean towards Brighton, where there’s local cafes, seaside fish and chips and other dog-friendly pubs and restaurants you can enjoy. Most of these operate most days through winter months, maybe on shorter hours, but still makes a great walk and refreshment break, all year round.

If you really want to make a day of it, you can carry on walking through the Ovingdean Gap beach and onto Brighton Marina, approximately under a 4 mile walk, and turn around and come back, if you’ve parked your car in Saltdean.

Are Dog Swimming Events Popular?

You’ll find by ‘googling dog swimming near me a host of dog water events will appear. It is surprising how many there are up and down the UK.

Should My Dog Wear A Buoyancy Jacket Swimming?

The Saltdean Lido event doesn’t require your dog to wear a buoyancy jacket but it’s a great way to introduce your dog to water and swimming. If you’re intending to spend more time on waterways, then a jacket is a sensible investment for the protection and safety of your dog and the huge discomfort for you to have to jump into water to rescue your dog!

Don’t think it happens? Think again. Dogs are very unpredictable, sometimes never showing anything out of the normal and then suddenly, something may trigger off their natural calm behaviour.

Jackets can be priced most modestly starting at around £20.00 upwards. Similar to a normal dog coat and can be worn when on beach walks, or by rivers and ideal when sailing on inflatables and boats.

We’ve known a lovely Jack Russell, calm as can be, loved sailing, but one day 2 ducks suddenly appeared from no where and he was off, forgetting he was on a boat, flying off, jumping in chasing them! The boat was steered towards him, he was wearing a jacket, and it meant that eventually he swam back to the boat as the ducks flew off with no one getting wet!

The New Countryside Code 2021

What does the Code require of dog walkers when walking by rivers?

  1. Use the designated signage for walkers provided by the National Trail, river, or canal authority.

2. Stay on marked paths, even when they get muddy.

3. Use any gates, stiles or gaps as provided, shutting gates after use.

4. Do not cause damage or disturbance to nature. Leave rocks, stone, plants and trees as you find them and take care not to disturb wildlife including birds that nest on the ground. This is very important around the river bank walks.

5. Dispose of litter in the appropriate bins or take home with you, leaving no trace of your visit. Litter can be so easily picked up by swans, geese, ducks and other wild animals who can choke on foreign objects and causes death.

6. Some walks may ban dogs at certain times of the year or require you to keep them on leads at all times.

7. Keeping dogs out of rivers is advisable to prevent accidents occurring, particularly where some rivers may have notorious fast tidal ranges.

8. Take care where river side banks can be slippery and rocky.

9. Some riverside walks will allow fishing. Dogs do love to investigate so it’s best to avoid these areas with your dog, pop them on the lead, and walk briskly by.

10. River walks are generally designated with public footpaths, so you shouldn’t see cyclists. Some walks are marked as public bridleways, and may allow off-road cycling and horses. These walks would be well-signed and advice provided for dog walkers.

TIP – Avoid letting your dog drink river water which may contain poisonous algae and toxins – even when thirsty walking.

Recent lockdown restrictions require households not to travel in certain areas of the UK and this may mean taking a journey to get to a beach or beauty spot. Take time to check local guidance and social media before taking a journey. Covid-19 Guidance for managing beaches and coastline areas. Covid-19 Guidance on accessing green spaces safely
