This was the first Dog Beach I had ever taken my Boxer Elle to. She loved it. Did not have any problems with other dogs. Owners were all friendly. Will definitely come back.

Excellent find. Fun and friendly atmosphere where dogs can play off leash on the beach. Best dog beach ever!

I will never bring my dog back to this park. Dogs owners do not control their dogs! To watch a dog attack another dog for no reason and it's owner act like it's no big deal is not just irresponsible it is disrespectful to the other owners who do control their dogs.

This dog beach was so incredible...very clean, full of friendly pups and owners, fenced to the parking lot, and best of all...free! The stretch of beach was pretty long for the dogs to run. We saw folks out there even without dogs! The fences are at the parking lot, then there is a body of water fenced off with alligator... More

Such a beautiful gem in Vegas. I was on vacation but would have loved to take my babies here. The beach is absolutely beautiful and it was remarkably fun to watch everyone's dogs playing together. It has dynamic facilities for both humans Nd their dogs to get showered off and to keep them hydrated. My friends that live in Venice... More

Too Many Owners do not clean up after their dogs! We were ther once and will never return. Also, way too crowded on weekends.

We were told about Brohard Paw Park by friends. Loved the entire concept of the doggie park with gates so the dogs could run freely. Upon approaching the beach, we were amazed by all the friendly dogs and owners. Plenty of access to doggy bags for quick pick-ups. Truly enjoyed the entire experience and we know our dogs did too!

I take my yellow lab here most evenings at around 7 pm. The tourists are gone and there are far fewer dogs than in the day time. Maxwell loves to swim through the waves to retrieve his orange rubber fish. After an hour or so of strenuous exercise we go back to the dog park that is adjacent to the... More

We brought our one year old doggie here and had so much fun! We were staying in siesta key for a long weekend and brohard was an easy 30 minute drive away. We got to the beach at 9 am on a Sunday and had no trouble parking. There aren't actually fences once you get on the sand which made... More
