Corona measures on Texel

Walks with dogs

Texel is a great place for your dog too! Your faithful four-legged friend will love walking along the beach and through the dunes. Dogs are more than welcome on Texel.

On the lead?

Dogs do need to be kept on the lead in some places. This is the case during the nesting season (from 1 March to 1 September) and in places where there are sheep or other livestock, for example. All the information that dog owners will need is provided in detail in the dog flyer (in the Dutch language). This flyer is available free of charge from many different places on the island: the tourist information office for Texel, for example.

Get-away weeks for master and dog

Dog coach Jos Oosting organises special Texel packages for dogs and their masters. You enjoy the beautiful nature and walks with your dog and the dog coach works on your dog's behaviour. You can indicate which aspects you would like to work on with your dog and will be given a personalised training programme too. So, you enjoy a great week away and leave feeling completely rested and with a dog without any problem behaviour any more.

The pack walk

Jos Oosting also regularly organises free pack walks across the beach. For many dogs this is the ideal opportunity to function in a natural situation - so, these walks are fun and instructive too! See What's on for the dates.

Texel detective dogs

Why search?
Many dogs find a round of walking delicious, but they are not very tired of it. If you are going to hunt with your dog (mantrailing) he is put to work, as it were. This makes him tired too mentally. Furthermore, it is of course super nice to work together as a team in the Texel forest or in the dunes.
Every dog can search. Age or race does not matter. Adolescents, a dog with behavioral problems, every dog is welcome at tear dogs Texel. Also a fun activity with the dog during the holidays on Texel.
We offer various tracking courses, workshops and research weekends.
