California Dog Beaches and Pet Friendly Parks

 

California Dog Beaches and Pet Friendly Parks include some fantastic locations along the California Coast where you can actually let your dog romp and play with other pets in the ocean, streams or parks and forests. Be sure to check local regulations such as leash laws before taking your pet to a destination that you believe is dog-friendly. Sometimes the once-friendly dog beach or park has been removed. While the trend is toward greater services and facilities for pets, dog clean-up and dog bites have causes closures due to liability issues. So the word to the wise is be nice and keep an eye on your pet. Don't let your dog terrorize other animals and especially keep a watchful eye on humans nearby. Dog bites are costly propositions.

 

 

California Dog Beaches and Pet Friendly Parks include some fantastic locations along the California Coast where you can actually let your dog romp and play with other pets in the ocean, streams or parks and forests. There's nothing more joyful than playing and getting exercise with man's best friend, the pet. Dog ownership is estimated to be 25% of the populations and if those figures play out in California, there are well over 9 million dogs in California alone! No wonder you'll see so many dogs at the dog parks and beaches! As owners increasingly seek places to take their pets in urban environments, they may consider looking to European cities for solutions. For instance, it has been well over 30 years that cities in Switzerland have devoted pet squat areas in public places, allowing dogs on a walk with an owner to do their biz. When you visit a California dog friendly beach, watch the practices of owners and act accordingly. Beware of taking small children to such beaches where they may play with the sand and put things in their mouth.  It's possible to have fun and share these treasured resources with a pet.

 

Now for the fun stuff: In Southern California, some of the favorite places to take pets to the beach include Ocean Beach Dog Beach in San Diego, Laguna and Newport Beach beaches before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. (check our site to confirm), Huntington Beach Dog Beach and Long Beach Dog Beach. On the Central California coast dogs are permitted on many beaches...check signage as you enter.   And in Northern California, while dogs are permitted on most beaches, signage alerts pet owners to local restrictions in areas where elephant seals and other wildlife habitats may be disturbed.

Top breeding dog bites in the U.S. include: Pit Bulls, Rotweilers, German Shepherds, Huskies, Doberman Pinschers and Chow Chows, accounting for 44% of bites.  Children under 10 are most frequently bitten by dogs with the face area the top point of attack.  Every 40 seconds in the US a person is seeking treatment for a dog bite.

 

For pet friendly California beaches that also are clothing optional, the list is small.
