Sand Beneath the Paws...It's time to take your Dog To The Beach using's FREE United States and Canada Coastal Beach Guide 

Many dogs enjoy a day at the beach. They love the sand beneath their paws, the waves lapping back and forth and the ocean water beckoning them. It seems like a nice way to spend a summer's day.  But before you get in your car and head down to your favorite beach, are you sure your favorite pooch will also be allowed? And if dogs are allowed, are they allowed to run leash-free or is the leash law enforced?

These days it seems tougher and tougher to find beaches that will allow dogs. This can especially be true when trying to find a beach near a large coastal city or metropolitan area...Continue Article...

Click Here for 200 Dog-Friendly Coastal Beaches's new beach guide lists coastal  beaches by state and includes descriptions of each beach including dog policies and regulations. From Maine to Florida in the East,

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. 
- In an off-leash area, always pay attention to your dog.

Britain No Longer  Off Limits for U.S. Dogs...But Still Too Complicated
Until December 11, 2002 Dogs entering Great Britain from the U.S. and Canada were required to remain in quarantine for six Months. Not good for that dog-friendly vacation. This policy was in place because the British Isles are entirely rabies free and the U.K. Government had policies in place to keep it that way. The British have created a program called the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) which allows well vaccinated and tested Dogs to enter Britain without quarantine. This is welcome news, indeed. But the regulations are complicated, so those of you planning to take advantage of PETS or just curious please read on...

Now a pet owner can follow a check list of requirements in order to bring their pooch with them to the U.K. However, there are still several drawbacks to this program. 

If any of the requirements in the PETS program are not followed, your dog will still be placed into quarantine, with a petition for early release. All dogs must enter into England via cargo on an airplane (an airplane's cargo section can be potentially dangerous for dogs). Dogs also cannot arrive via private plane or boat. All dogs must be microchipped, but if your dog's microchip fails or cannot be read, your dog will need to return to the U.S. or be placed in quarantine. And if you own a Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dog Argentino, or a Filo Braziliero, do not even think of coming to England. These breeds are considered "dangerous dogs" by the UK and might be seized and destroyed. If you are determined to visit the U.K., or just curious about the requirements, the following is a summary of Britain's Pet Travel Scheme. For full details or before you travel, you will need to visit Defra's website (official website for PETS).

Before you visit an establishment or place, please contact them and verify that they are still dog-friendly and available, as policies and management change frequently. All places listed on require your dog to be leashed and under your direct control unless specified  otherwise by an establishments (including parks and beaches) management. Please be aware of local Breed-Specific Laws that may be in place where you are visiting.
