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.
