We love beaches, we love dogs! Although the family Chihuahuas are probably too small to enjoy the pleasures that an ocean beach has to offer (think shark hors d’oeuvres), we know many people out there want to spend their beach vacation with their lovable 4-legged friends.

Dogs aren’t allowed on all beaches, so know before you go! Many state beaches will have rules available on their websites, or you can find out at http://www.dogfriendly.com if the beach you want to visit is one of the 200 + dog friendly coastal beaches!
Here are two simple tips on how to “share the beach” with non-dog owners, so we can help keep beaches pet friendly:
- Always follow leash laws!
Although some beaches have off leash areas, please respect other beach visitors by keeping your dog on a leash where required. When you are in off leash areas, make sure your dog is well-behaved and responds to voice commands. Be sure to pay attention to your dog.
- Always remember to clean up after your dog by removing pet waste. This keeps the beach a clean place for everyone.
