the lake at PRIZIAC is good clean dog frendly keep out of the children area near bar and we have no problems,suggest not on hot afternoons as snakes will be about near water ,we always pick mornings  under 12 deg s, nice walks round lake

Thanks so much for the advice, we got there in the end!  Meantime, if anyone can recommend any other suitable lakes within striking distance of Pontivy, please post!

So how can they swim on a lead ?I suggest if there are any reeds or inlets to keep them on a lead ,if it is just flat grass and paths to let them off .If you go there at various times of the day you will see what the nesting bird population is like .Once thenesting season is over you should be OK to go anytime off lead unless it is marked.

I quite understand about keeping on leads, but, still no news about whether dogs are allowed to swim in the lake?

Sharks are not the problem,you need to be aware of Pike.
