Bathing in the sea for dogs: news in Cattolica
After Rimini, also Cattolica has moved to allow the bathing of dogs in the summer, albeit with many limitations and perhaps a logistical difficulty of implementation.
The bath will be possible only in the bathing establishments that have already availed themselves of the faculty to equip areas with canine accommodation. In Cattolica, there are five beaches of this type, and only one has requested permission to also allow the bathroom;
The sea area intended for bathing dogs must be identified in the water mirror in front of the bathing establishment, bounded by buoys and identified by a sign;
Very restrictive times: from 6 to 7: 30 and from 20 to 22 (in Rimini, instead, the bathroom will be possible from 6 to 8 and from 19: 30 to 21);
The dog must always be accompanied with a leash and the cleaning of the water mirror and the beach (where necessary) will be up to the owner.
Furthermore, the dog must be registered at the bathhouse. For details, reference can be made to the ordinance at the end of the article.

Below is the municipal ordinance with which the above is ratified and regulated:
