We've spent a long time fine tuning our new website, but it's inevitable that one or two gremlins might still be in the system. Please report any issues you experience when using our new website.
You're welcome to add that information to the listing. The walks are written for people on long car journeys and so we always take the safest parking place, closest to the facilities and the start of the walk route.
All the information for travelling abroad with your pet is here:
UK-style postcodes are not used here. We've provided the GPS co-ordinates.
First, check your satnav manual and see if it tells you how to select latitude/longitude. On our TomTom this is in the menu for 'navigate to'. And you can also get the full driving directions for each walk when you click on 'Directions' and these don't need a satnav at all.
Sign in to your Premium France Driving with Dogs membership and click on the 3 dots to the right of Beaches, and then click on Vets in France.
All the Driving with Dogs walks are physically tried and tested by the DwD team, and if an autoroute doesn't have dog walks then we haven't been there yet. The 'missing' autoroutes are mainly in the less popular central region.
This depends on your route and the road operator. Many of the walks are designed to save you some motorway driving as you come off after one peage/toll and then rejoin further on.
We're all waiting to hear about this.
Many vets in France, or their receptionists, speak excellent English. If your dog is unwell, remember that vets are trained to care for animals who cannot say what their problem is.
Some beaches in France have restrictions for dogs in the summer. You'll see signs with pictures in obvious places near the beach, like in the UK. Driving with Dogs has listings of lots of dog-friendly beaches in France.
Yes. Every single walk has been walked by the DwD team.
There are 4 essentials to this. The pub/cafe should
- serve coffees, lunch and snacks during the day, and have somewhere for driver and dog to sit together comfortably.
- have the kind of atmosphere where a woman and dog are made welcome and not stared at.
- have clean WCs
The dog walk should start within 50m of the pub and avoid fields of livestock, and awkward stiles.
Yes you can. Remember anything you add has to be original and not copied from other websites.
