Love bringing our dogs here. Most people are respectful in cleaning up after their dogs but would love to see more people keeping eyes on their pets

Great beach for the dogs to go and play and interact with other dogs off leash. Beach is an easy entry for the pups to go swimming and there is plenty of room for the ones who like to chase toys on shore too. We try to go a few times a month with our three pups. Convenient rinsing station... More

Doggies can get there dog on!! So fun to watch them play. Nice to have them run free! So many dogs, mostly all getting along. Did see a few not but if your dog isn't good with other dogs I'd not go. Pretty beach and if it's warm enough you can swim with your pooch!

Great place to take your dog for the day or a few hours. There are washrooms in the parking lot next door. Also a fenced in play area for the dogs at the road. You walk through the dog park and down a path with a wooden deck and the end to get to the beach.

Drove over an hour to spend the day here because of the reviews I had read, we had been to another dog beach in Florida, but the water was dirty, so we were looking for a new place to spend the day with our dogs. So happy we chose this beach. It's a great beach for humans & dogs. The... More

Paw Park on southern Harbor Drive fronts on the Gulf of Mexico and is very popular among dog owners. Bags are provided for pooch poop and there is plenty of space to let Fido mingle with other pooches and romp in the Gulf. If your dog is not good with other dogs, I would not recommend this however.

Took our Lab Bos'n to the Brohard dog beach in Venice, FL, today. 78 F. Sunny. Gorgeous beach day. What a dog heaven! A hundred or more dogs milling around and running up and down the beach and into and out of the water. Labs, Goldens and what have you all vying for frisbees and tennis balls. Bos'n thinking that...

I go through Paw's Park on a regular basis when I walk the beach. I love the dogs. They are large and small frolicking at the beach. I have seen may little dogs in tutus and there is a big standard poodle with red sunglasses. Both dogs and owners socialize while enjoying the sun and sand.

Best dog beach ever! If your dog loves the water, loves the ocean then Brohard Paw Park is a must for you and your canine friend. The people enjoy the beach as well.
