This is a nice place at the beach to stroll and play with your favorite dog. A safe place for pets and humans.

Huntington Beach's dog park is one of a very few where you can bring your dog down to the beach and just let them run. I had 4 dogs and I would just mention the beach and they would go crazy! My Sheep Dog wanted to save every dog from drowning. The Poodles wanted to chase balls and play frisbee.... More

For those of you who want to visit the beach with your four legged best friend, this is the beach to run free without a leash. Dogs love jumping into the ocean and playing carefree. Lots of room to wander and stroll along California's beautiful coastline. Parking is metered.

What a great place to take a dog or even young teens who happen to like dogs. So much fun to watch. The people who bring there dogs to the beach are very respectful.

We love dog beach! It's our dogs favorite place to be a dog! Be prepared for the good and sometimes the bad. It's the beach, be prepared with the following: Fresh water for your dog, a meal for your dog, a towel for your dog, your dogs favorite water toy and poop bags. After that, anything you think you may... More

almost 10 miles of shoreline, one of the only places I know that is 100% dog friendly. Dog beach never closes but some areas get pretty narrow on a high tide. sand is nice and poop bags and trash cans are available

This is a great beach to bring your dog and let them run with all the other dogs or keep it on a leash and play in the surf. If you have a dog you owe it to him/her to play on the sand.

If your travels take you along the beach city coast, south of Los Angeles, with or without your pooch, make sure stop at Huntington Beach dog beach. You will get a reality check that dogs really do rule the world... and they should... If your tail wagged every day appreciating the wonder of life, the smells and scents, and embracing... More

My husband and I were staying at the Hyatt with our Chihuahua adjacent to a beach that unfortunately doesn't allow dogs. Nor is our hound allowed on the Huntington Pier. Thankfully, there's Dog Beach where you can surf and play with your pooch.
