Small reminder of the specific rules for dogs

For a harmonious cohabitation between pet owners and "Humans", here are a few little tips, recommendations and instructions that will allow you to have a good time together.
The national regulations distinguish between 3 categories of dogs 
  • 1st category dogs: Pit-Bull, Massive type, Tosa type, American Staffordshire Terrier type.
  • 2nd category dogs: Staffordshire Terrier, Rottweiller breed or type, Tosa breed. Remember that owners of dogs in these two categories must have a licence and liability insurance.
  • Category 3 is for all other dogs. There are no national regulations for category 3 dogs.

Travelling by public transport

The "Réseau Mistral", which manages public transport in the Toulon agglomeration (of which La Seyne, Ollioules, Saint Mandrier and La Seyne are part) is rather tolerant of our four-legged friends.

Indeed, as in most large cities in France, small dogs can travel for free. But large dogs can also board buses and boat-buses, provided they buy an additional ticket (except for categories 1 and 2).


These sanitary facilities are reserved for canine use only and allow the green spaces, streets and pavements to be left clean and pleasant. These sanded areas are cleaned every day by a municipal agent.

In La Seyne sur Mer, you will find freedom areas, i.e. fenced areas for dogs, in the Abbé Pierre Square and the Malsert Square. In addition, the Séverine garden and the Guymier garden offer canisites.
