Yes you can walk your Dog for exercise , but only one person and your not to come into contact with other people,  stay at least 2 metres apart.

Taken from another post on this forum:-

The Royal Decree issued today says citizens will only be able to use public roads for the following reasons:

1. Acquisition of food, pharmaceuticals and basic necessities.
2. Visits to health centres.
3. Travel to the workplace to perform work or business-related activities.
4. Return to the place of habitual residence.
5. Assistance and care for the elderly, minors, dependents, people with disabilities or especially vulnerable people.
5 Visits to financial entities.
6. Any other activity of an analogous nature duly justified.

There is permission - as Tony has said - for dog Walking/toileting. Pretty obvious really. 

It’s not on the list you posted but do check it out - it is permitted. So too is taking a sick animal to a vet, attending a hairdresser ...

Hi Chrisso, You've just become my wife's new best friend - she can attend the hairdresser! Appearance catastrophe  avoided!

Haha! 😂 But be cautious. The reason for hairdressers being accessible is because some elderly women cannot wash their hair - hairdressers do it for them. So it may be a restricted service. Likewise with vets ...

Tony is right.  Dog walking was specifically mentioned by Pedro Sánchez on the TV last night.  You can also go to the optician which are supposed to be open and estancos are open for tabaco because of the stress it presumably could cause for those who are nicotine dependant to be without.  

Only one person is supposed to go out at a time to shop or the bank etc. so I must find out if those who need transport in rural areas to go shopping, can be driven by their partner if they themselves don't have a licence.  As long as one stays in the car I imagine it should be ok. 🤔

I’m sure you are right. Common sense must prevail. Although the car driver could do the shopping presumably - whilst their partner stays at home with any children. 

The problem with too onerous or unreaaonable rules is that sensible rules can still get ignored. This morning (when I took the dog out) there were plenty of cars being driven, there were cyclists, joggers, walkers in small groups (maybe they lived together?) and the local church and tourist office was open! The latter was closed later, maybe they only just saw the memo ...

I told my dog to stay at least six feet away from any other dogs 🐶  🐕 but he was oblivious...

Thanks Chris

The car driver in my home has a chronic pre-existing health issue and is over 70 so I am hoping that I can be driven to do the shop. Lists must be flexible too as there will be some items that probably could be sold out and my partner wouldn't have a clue how to improvise!
