Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: Walking your dog
Am I allowed to walk my dog?
Yes, you are allowed to walk your dog, however, you must keep your dog under close control at all times.
We advise that you keep your dog on a lead at this time, to avoid a situation where you need to break social-distancing rules to retrieve your dog, and to reduce the risk of a visit to the vets.
Existing Public Space Protection Orders for dog control are in place in South Tyneside, see PSPOs for dog fouling and dog control
