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 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.

Please remember to share us with your friends and Like us on Facebook. Thank you!
