FINDING a beach that is perfect for yourself and your dog can be difficult.

Some dogs are banned from a number of beaches in Dorset during Spring and Summer months in a bid to curb any dog waste on them.

There are however beaches across Dorset that dogs are welcome to walk and play on all year-round, with 30 beaches across the county to enjoy.

These beaches offer stunning views and are worth a day out to, with some recently featuring in our round-up of best secret beaches in Dorset.

Dog owners should however ensure their pooch is under control at all times and must clean up after their dog.

Failure to comply with the council's rules puts owners at the risk of a fine of up to £1,000.

Dorset Echo has listed the beaches you can walk your dogs on all year-round. If you do visit these beaches, just be aware of any signage about any areas.
