Summer is in the city and what does your four-legged friend do? He sweats and sweats. Just like us. But while we can cool off under a cold shower and recharge our energy stores our furry friends have few options to escape the heat. Especially if they live in the city. So let's give them the greatest pleasure and turn the longed-for summer into pure happiness for them, too. With what? With a trip to the beaches of the North Sea and Baltic Sea. And to make sure that this goes off without a hitch and that we don't constantly get nasty looks from other beachgoers, there are plenty of dog beaches. There our faithful companions can dig in the sand with full commitment, romp around with vacation acquaintances and plunge into the floods. The dog beaches are mostly equipped with beach chairs and toilets for the human companions, as well as poop bags and fresh water for our darlings. We present you with our top 5 dog beaches where your sweaty friend can celebrate his doggy life to the fullest.
