The beach in Del Mar, CA is a nice dog beach. We live near Huntington Dog Beach, so that is the beach we go to. The responsible dog people who frequent this beach have been able to keep it dog friendly. They provide doggy bags and have beach cleaning parties. Their website is www.dogbeach.org.

There is the key...responsible dog owners. I hate it when people come and expect other dogs to babysit theres. But ah, the beach is so cool for the dogs. The problem with Del Mar is that it is not supposed to be off leash after school gets out because of tourism. Also when it rains they worry about sewage spills. So you are not suppose to go for a day or two after rain.

My flyball team goes to a tournament there every July just for the beach in that we live 21/2 hours from the beach.
I took my dog to Del Mar Dog beach today. It was his first time ever! I wasn't sure how he was going to do, but he had a blast. He didn't bark at any dogs or show aggression at all. He absolutely loved it. My kids want to go back tomorrow. He was doing a lot of bum smelling and I hope once I get him fixed, that will stop. It was kind of embarrassing and he was ignoring my commands to not continue. He was having so much fun though. I heard Del Mar dog beach is one of the better beaches to go to because the owners actually keep an eye on their dogs not just let their dogs roam unattended.

We have 2 lovely dog beaches within 5 minutes of home, and several others just a little further away. Great for a hot afternoon. The surf is a bit rough locally though, so we need to be aware, but often it's just me and my dog on the entire stretch of sand. Bliss!!

I agree the States are more dog friendly than us lot!! I take Frank to a place in Norfolk called Bacton - famous for its Gas works....., seriously it is a lovely beach there and dogs are allowed all year.
We are off in a few weeks, just me and Frank, we stay on a lovely park which is totally dog friendly, lets just hope we have not had our summer already!

Sort of an old post, but thought I'd post my favorite dog beach anyway

We head over to Coronado Dog Beach (San Diego area) as often as possible. Nice wide stretch of beach about a half mile long. Though it gets a little crowded in the summers, it's nice and quiet in the mornings and evenings...

Is it "off-leash" all year long? At Del Mar dog beach, it is mandatory leash law between June 19th or so until right after Labor Day, September due to tourist season. I've gone when it was non-leash and went when it was the leash law, however people had their dogs off leash....I didn't get it. Everyone I asked didn't know when the law took place and I guess were taking their chances. So, of course, I took the leash off mine. Thank goodness I didn't get a fine.

Yes, our dog beach is open all year long. I can see where it would be confusing with only certain hours and days you can take your dog to the beach.
I have haven't been to too many other dog beaches in the county. Only Coronado and Fiesta Island. We may have to take some field trips!!
