“Fun with or without a Dog”

Huntington Dog Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I dont know what beach the other review was talking about, but I get a kick out of watching the other dogs at this beach. They are having a blast and doing what dogs do, barking and chasing each other and their owners around. I have not witnessed any problems at this beach and have brought my little dog a few times but she is a princess and does not like the sand, so she just watches from our arms (can you tell she is spoiled?-LOL) The other owners for the most part are respectful to each other but you do get a noodnick (inconsiderate dummy) from time to time (but that is everywhere you go anymore). If you have a dog and it loves water then come on down your dog will have a blast. A word of caution, The decent down to the beach can be a bit steep for those that maybe physically challenged, and there are many uneven surfaces.

Not a good place for a beach walk. Too much doggie poo to step in. Too many silly dog people with silly dogs running, jumping, barking and chasing all over the place.

Always a good time here with my 2 dogs... Sometime owners forget to curb their pets, but that's because their dogs are always running around and you don't always see your dogs poop. Parking is hard to find on weekends too...

unleash adn free to roam, walk ,run, and splash in the surf --doogie paradise !

most owners know their dogs and what their dog can handle and be ' friendly' among other dogs, ALL SIZES and with people , adults and kids...never seem to have had a problem yet

almost ALL are conscious and pick up after themselves OK their doggie selves...because surfers also share the same coastline...free plastic baggie available...

Huntington Dog Beach is one of the best things HB has going for it. Very few CA beaches allow leash-free running and frolicking of our four legged friends; this one attracts (generally) responsible dog owners, all types and ages of doggies, and respectful sharing of the shoreline with surfers and shell hunters. Poop bags are almost always abundant at the entrance points, but it's always a good idea to bring one of your own (or more if you have multiple dogs). One couple we've met comes weekly from Palm Springs just to go to this beach with their pooch. It's that worth it.
