Petition Started For More Pet-Friendly Beaches

 

A dog owner has presented a petition to Parliament urging them to increase the number of pet-friendly beaches in Malta. The petition is asking for a reassessment of Maltese beaches.

 

Currently, Malta has 10 beaches where dogs are allowed to swim however, the petition states that this is not enough as they are not easily accessible for the owners and their pet companions.

 

 

Furthermore, the petition asks for most beaches to be open to dogs and their owners before 9.00 a.m. Alan Grixti claimed that many beaches are empty before 9am and that the summer heat is intolerable for dogs. Families could benefit from an early swim with their pets before 9:00 am.

 

Do you think we need more pet-friendly beaches?
