5 Best Beaches for Dogs

Now that January’s here in full force, we’re doggone cold!  If you and your furry friend are begging for warmer weather, start daydreaming about these five dog-friendly beaches right now.

Hey, do they make sunscreen for Schnauzers?

1.  Fort De Soto Park, Florida

Two fenced-in areas for maximum sand and surf time.  Cooling stations complete with showers and dog-level water fountains.  Sounds like puppy paradise!

2.  Cannon Beach, Oregon

Dogs rule supreme here, where not only are they allowed to run free on the beach– but the entire town caters to their every whim! Several of the hotels and local restaurants bend over backwards to ensure your pet has the time of her life.

3.  Kailua Beach Park, O’ahu

Forget “fetch.” Fido will be barking “aloha!” as you take in the gorgeous turquoise waters and feel the silky white sand between your toes (and paws!).

4.  Fiesta Island, San Diego

Um, you had us at “fiesta.”  Your dog will have a ball romping though the sandy dunes and exploring the calm bay waters.

5.  Montrose Beach, Chicago

Okay, maybe it’s not set in the most tropical locale, but Chicago’s first legal off-leash dog beach is free and open year-round.  Perfect for playing polar bear this winter!
