Break O'Day council will once again restrict dog access at a number of the region's beaches.
The annual push is aimed at protecting shore birds returning to coastal areas to nest.
Tasmania is home to 50 per cent of the world's population of hooded plovers and pied oystercatchers.

Break O'Day mayor Mick Tucker said there are many passionate bird advocates in the area, and that previously dogs had been a threat to these vulnerable species' during their October to March nesting period - so their protection was essential.
"We believe that as stewards of the area we have an obligation not just to our community, but to protecting the environment we all love and enjoy," he said.
"Many people here are supportive of this, others unfortunately decide to ignore the rules."
He emphasised that only the council and Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service representatives have the authority to issue fines.
BirdLife Tasmania's Dr Eric Woehler said he played an integral role in establishing the legislative requirement to develop the Dog Management Plans and Policy over a decade ago.
"When a dog attacks a person the dog is almost always put down, when a dog kills a penguin there's a slight uproar in the media and then it fades quickly, but when a dog kills a nesting bird on the beach nothing happens at all," he said.
Dr Woehler insisted that pet owners in the community, especially those who own cats and dogs, must take responsibility for their furry friends.
"Before being domesticated dogs were carnivorous hunters," he said.
