YES Dog Beach in Mar de Plata

Known for being the first spa created exclusively for dogs in Argentina, being a 100% pet friendly area. But it is not only the first in Argentina, it is also the first beach for dogs in all of Latin America and was declared a site of interest by the municipality of General Pueyrredon.

Yes Playa Canina is located about 50 meters from the Lighthouse, towards the southern part of Mar de Plata. The area is located right on interbalnearia route 11, specifically at kilometer 5.5, inside the complex known as “El Balcon”.

At the entrance you can find a rather curious sign, it says “No entry without pets”. Which means that if you do not bring your dog, then you will not be able to access the area and this rule is followed without any exceptions. In the same way, you can enter the beach with your pet between 8 am and 8 pm, as well as some mandatory rules that must be followed.

The idea of ​​creating the first beach with a 100% pet friendly theme in Argentina came from Nair and Gabriel Sapienza in 2013. A couple who, like many others, had a very hard time taking their dogs on vacation. For this reason, both decided to create yes canine beach in 2015 and in summer 2022 it is one of the most popular places to take your pets.

The place is quite spacious and is completely adjusted to the needs of dogs, it has several tents and umbrellas. In addition, they have an agility square and also a games area, ideal for training dogs without neglecting fun. In the same way, showers, dog pool, slide and an area known as “pipi room”, for dogs to relieve themselves.

However, to access Yes canine beach it is very important to meet certain requirements that are mandatory. For this, a group of specialized trainers are in charge of each family that brings their pet, complying with the rules of coexistence established in the place.

First, the owner of the dog must show a deworming booklet, a veterinary certificate and the flea pipette. Next, a team performs a preliminary evaluation of the dog’s behavior, in order to find out if the animal is calm or aggressive.

Aggressive, euphoric dogs or dogs that bark too much will not be allowed in Yes canine beach. The reason is that they could incite the rest to adopt inappropriate behaviors and the environment would become tense for the pets.

Pinamar

Another of the best options to enjoy the 2022 summer vacations on the beach with your pet is Pinamar. Like Yes playa canina, Pinamar is one of the forerunners of the pet friedly lifestyle trend in a large part of the Argentine coast. Although it is not an “exclusive” beach for pets, they have access within special hours.

Some years ago, the municipality presented certain ordinances with the aim of allowing pets within tourist areas. In the regulation issued, it was dictated that pets could access certain resorts and beaches open to the general public.

Ordinance 4811 was issued in 2016, seeking a balance between the tranquility of people who go on vacation and pets. This is why the inns that comply with the ordinance must indicate which tents allow families with pets. In the same way, these inns will have to offer water service, waste bags and dishes for dog food.

Likewise, the ordinance indicates that dogs can only be on the beaches from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. It applies between the months of December and April, which means that out of season you can take your pets all the day if you like.

The imposed schedule is to protect pets from the hours when there is more recurrence of bathers. Since most of these do not like the idea of ​​seeing animals walking along the shore of the beaches. In addition, you should not forget to bring the pet’s health book, its leash and bags that serve to collect its feces.

But the beach is not the only place with a pet-friendly trend, Pinamar also has at least five restaurants and three hotels. Among these, the Tante restaurant and the Sahara Apart Hotel stand out, where you can continue enjoying the 2022 summer holidays.

the seagulls

However, due to the lack of spas and the great extension of these beaches, there are some exceptions. So it is advisable to go only to areas where pets are allowed.
