Nothing beats a trip to the beach on a hot summer’s day! Dogs (and their owners) can get some great exercise running along the shoreline and then cooling off with a romp in the waves at these dog-friendly beaches.
Safety Tip: Drinking salt water can make your dog ill or even prove fatal if large quantities are consumed, so bring along plenty of fresh water to keep your companion hydrated.
In order to keep the dog-friendly beaches friendly, please keep these basic rules of dog-beach etiquette in mind:
- Leave nothing behind — always scoop your dog’s poop (see our product reviews on poop bags)
- Obey beach and park leash laws
- Always keep your dog under control
- Know when your dog has had enough fun-in-the sun and is ready to head home
