Toulon, elected city of France the most welcoming for dogs!
Montpellier, the most "dog friendly" city in France? Well no, not this year: the city loses two places... in favor of Toulon and Perpignan! But in any case, it is in the sun that dogs always seem to enjoy the best living conditions.
The majority of French people now live in urban areas. With them, around 10 million dogs identified according to the latest figures of I-CAD. It is therefore perfectly normal to try to integrate them as much as possible into city life. And according to The list of cities where life is good with his dog edited by the magazine 30 Millions of friends of the month of May , three of them are well off play: Toulon who snatched the first place with a total of 17.92 / 20, Perpignan coming second with the nice score of 17.88 / 20 and Montpellier - the dethroned beautiful - who is in third position with 17.51 points out of 20.
To establish its ranking, the review was based on various criteria - rated out of 20 - such as: accessibility of public transport, green spaces and public places to dogs, cleanliness of the city, the proposed commercial infrastructure, awareness and communication to the dog owners, the dog population and the municipal policy Establishment.

In 2017, it is therefore the ca economic heart of the Var who won the jackpot. Why ? For its reasoned approach of sharing its public and green spaces: more than a quarter of them have caniparcs in which dogs can be dropped. Public transport in the city is also accessible to dogs on leash (boats and cable car included) and more than 1.3 million manure bags are distributed by the municipality. And that's not all: there is help for animals left behind, as well as a dog squad that watches over animals . For all these reasons, Reha Hutin, President of the 30 Million Friends Foundation, presented the 30 Million Friends Foundation Ribbon of Honor to Hubert Falco, Senator-Mayor of Toulon.
