If you are lucky enough to be traveling with your dog Brohard Paw Park is the place to go! Gentle surf and friendly people make this a great place to introduce your pet to the Gulf of Mexico.

We have been taking our dog to the park for the past 8 winters. She absolutely loves it. She is a golden retriever and is afraid of the water but loves the ocean and running around with all the other dogs. Great place to go and enjoy even if you don't have a dog but are a dog lover.

If you have a dog who enjoys regular fenced in dog parks, then this place will blow your dog's mind. They have a couple fenced in areas by the parking lot, but they lead to a path down to the beach. Technically, you're supposed to re-leash the dogs between the fenced in area and the beach. We didn't realize this... More

Live in venice an love to watch the dogs play in water an roll in the sand. Most dog owners are watchful of the pet and very few fights. All dogs. small, Med and large. Don't forget the Sun Glasses for your dog, sun is just as bright of them as humans.

Stay away, I like it all to myself, mostly empty of the masses and I want to keep it clean and empty because I live just a few steps from it and want to enjoy it as my beach whenever I want all year round

This is a lovely park to come and let your dog have a great time splashing in the waves! If you have a little dog, you can choose to keep them in the separate small dog enclosure, but we love to take our dog out onto the beach and let her play with the other dogs. It's really fun to... More

A great dog beach. I was surprised how well behaved all the dogs were. A nice place to watch a sunset if you don't want to leave your dog behind.

We go to the dog beach everyday. For the most part everyone watches their pets and there are few incidents. Great place.

Our dog loved having the freedom to chase her ball into the ocean and run through the sand. What made the dog beach even better is the fact that they have a doggie washing station near the parking lot. This made it easy to clean up our pup before heading home.

They don't have anything like this place in Miami. It is so popular that if you don't get here early enough, parking gets interesting. The dogs love the place; so many of them just walking around, saying hello to everyone. The people visiting keep it very clean; no garbage or pet droppings. Very friendly people. Oh, and the water is... More
