Dogs on the beach
At Blue Flag beaches you are allowed to swim with your dog from a distance of 200 m in both directions from the pole with the Blue Flag. During the summer time (from April to September) your dog must be kept on a leash at the beach in regards to breeding birds and other guests. The rest of the year (from October to March) your dog can enjoy the freedom of the beach, provided that you have full control over it, meaning you can call upon your dog at any time.
With your dog in the nature
Except for the special dog forests, which you can see on the map, your dog must always be kept on a leash in the forests and nature areas, since a dog might be a stressful factor for the wild animals of the forest or of a nuisance to other guests. If your dog is not mentioned on the prohibtion lists, you and your dog might benefit from a so-called Flex-line, allowing your dog to run more freely.
Other animals naturally perceive dogs as being predators and tend to react accordingly. If you choose to take the dog into an area with livestock, do not have the leash tied to your body.
Dogs in the dog forests
In Sønderborg municipality we have 7 dog forests and 1 fenced dog park. The dog forests are not fenced and here your dog can run freely, provided you still have complete control over it.
The dog park Kær Hundepark was opened 24 February 2019. Here your dog can run free and play in the fenced park. Your dog must be compatible with other dogs and react on your call at any time. On the Danish Facebook group Hundetræf Kær Vestermark you can ask if someone want to join in on some playtime.
