California Dog-Friendly Beach Guide
Does your dog like to swim? Or feel the sand under their paws? Here are the cities in California that have pet-friendly beaches. Since most U.S. and Canadian Beaches do not allow dogs it can be hard to find beaches that allow dogs. Some are off-leash, most require leashes. Some have seasonal or time of day restrictions for dogs. Enjoy the beach with your dog.

Beach Etiquette for Dogs
- Always keep your dog leashed when there is a leash law
- Always clean up after your dog by using a poop bag or pooper scooper 
- Do not let your dog visit with other beach-goers or dogs, unless welcomed
- If using an official off-leash area, your dog needs to be well-behaved and must listen to your verbal commands.
