Dog friendly places to visit

 A dog is a man's best friend! It is always a time well spent when you are with your pal! Take a long walk through the most beautiful sights of Sigulda or different forest trails, enjoy a delicious meal in one of Sigulda's cafes or restaurants or participate in sports activities with your dog.


Sigulda region was recognized in 2019 as the most dog-friendly region, where owners with their pets are welcomed in public places, sightseeing objects, and catering places! (


Sigulda can be proud not only of several dog-friendly cafes, but also many walking trails, which allows your four-legged friends to stretch their legs and run around.


Recommended routes: Turaida Ravines and Caves, The wild ravine of the River Vējupīte and Mound Paradīzes and route Sigulda-Krimulda-Sigulda are great options for walking with your for legged friend! 



Enjoy the day with your dog, but take a few precautions:
the dog must be on a leash, muzzle if necessary;

respect the people around you;

the dog must sit quietly next to the owner;

it is forbidden to bring dogs into the exhibition premises.


In Sigulda, special autonomous cartridges with biological waste bags have been installed, which are intended for dog excrement. These cartridges with eco-friendly bags are located in the following places:
  • In the Castle Quarter (to the right behind the entrance gate);
  • Station Square (in the green area behind the kiosks);
  • Festivity Square (at the Ferris Wheel);
  • At the intersection of Cēsu and Leona Paegles ielas.

If necessary, the waste bag disposal during a walk is also possible in municipal waste bins available in urban areas.


According to the Cabinet of Ministers (CM) Regulation No. 266 “Welfare requirements for keeping, trade and display of domestic (pet) animals in public exhibitions, as well as training of a dog” provides that:
in towns and villages outside the fenced area, the dog must be carried on a leash;

in towns and villages outside the fenced area, the dog can be in a green area and in the forest without a leash.


Each municipality explains the term green area, as well as exceptional cases, such as certain places where the dog is not allowed to be without a leash (children's playgrounds, sports grounds, gardens, etc.), in its binding regulations.
