Dog Beach

Established in 1972, Dog Beach is a place where you can let your dog roam without a leash. I can only imagine that this is like dog heaven: your owner lets you run wild - swimming, sniffing others, chasing - a total dog free for all. The only rule is no fighting. There have been some updates since 1972: a sign and notice board indicating the Dog Beach area, a cemented entrance with big dog paws, and this cool sculpture of a paw.

Poor that yellow/brown dog. The master still putting a leash on his/her neck.

Thanks everyone. It is a fun fun place for dogs.
Tanty - they were leaving the beach so the dog had some fun already!
Kala - dating? All of two seconds and then they run on to the next new excitement!
Mark - Lady is a lucky girl!
Thanks for stopping by Bob.
Heather, I was there on Sunday too, although I don't have a dog - I was the one with the camera and 2 kids!
Aaron - This one is in Ocean Beach...I forgot about the one in Coronado!
Edwin - I think space is so essential for dogs, certain breeds need more exercise than others.
