Route YC

Coming out of the main summer season also means many of the beach restrictions are lifted, making even more beaches doggy heaven.

You can search for dog friendly businesses on each route page and here are some Route YC musts to protect the Yorkshire Coast for future Route YC visitors and residents.

  • Everyone knows how unpleasant dog mess is, but did you know it can be very harmful to farm animals? Be a responsible dog owner - bag it, take it, bin it.

  • Keep your dog on a short lead around farm animals. The only time you should release your dog is if you're threatened or chased by cattle.

  • Never get between cows and calves -- walk around the herd and re-join the path when safe.

  • If cattle follow you, stay calm -- walk quickly and quietly around the herd.
