Well behaved dogs should be welcome at any park. Obedience schools abound. Minimal effort. Our dog is quiet on command. Will heel, sit, stop.
Dog owners are the issue. Nothing cute about an owner who lets his dog bark at every other passing dog, thinks strangers don't mind being sniffed up and down, and doesn't scoop.

In most cases it's the people who need a license not the animals..

A well behaved dog on a leash should be welcome at any park, but it's the idiots who like to let their dogs run off leash and harass wildlife and not pick up after them that cause them to make more restrictive rules. Of course then the good owners who would have respected the rules anyway don't get to bring their dogs anymore, while the idiots who ignored the rules before still ignore them and bring their dogs and let them run loose anyway. Sometimes life ain't fair.

Thumbs down sad but true...

Our Pwd loves to go fish'n with us. We were at a private campground

several years ago that is well known in the region for it's smallmouth.

When we got there we observed all the pet regulations that were posted

except one...we took Fado with us in the boat. After several hours we

were told we would have to leave Fado in the trailer if we wanted to fish.

The reason..seems several seasons ago a couple capsized in a canoe with

a dog along, no floatation on-board, and the site owner was concerned

about a lawsuit.

No one was seriously hurt but the damage was done.


As I noted in another post....STUPID PEOPLE SHOULDN'T BREED

I make it a rule to humbly pick up more than my fair share and encourage others to do the same. All of us will loose our dog walking privileges if we don't keep things clean. Kind and sensitive peer pressure is also (at times) appropriate. Bring more bags than you will use, hand them out! It's a very good cause. And remember...

Virtually the whole middle coast of California from Monterey to Santa Barbara is off limits to dogs, because so much of it is either state parks or private property. Interestingly, there are a few federally controlled areas where dogs are allowed. Also, I'm not completely sure about this, but state land only extends to the beach at mean high tide. The beach from mean high tide to the water is federal. So you may be prohibited from getting to the beach, but if you manage to get there, you are evidently free to walk your dog in the surf zone (which of course is where they would like to be anyway). At least, that's what I was told, and was never challenged walking my dog there, even though there were very intimidating signs on the paths leading to the beach.

California beaches and parks north of San Francisco are much more accommodating of dogs. I've spent a lot of time in most of the towns and beaches in that area, and my dog pretty much goes wherever I go, including a surprising number of dog friendly restaurants, on their outside patios.

In all of California, the general rule seems to be to look and see what is going on on the beach. The locals know what beaches are okay to run your dog off leash, and I've never been hassled running my dog on a beach if I saw dogs running free there already. Of course, on or off leash, nobody likes dog poop and every responsible dog owner should carry one or several plastic bags and pick up after their own dog and others too, if you feel in need of having a few of your minor sins forgiven.

I was at a campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway a few weeks ago, where pets are allowed everywhere as long as they are on a leash. My site was about 50' from a hiking trail. Just at dusk as I was watching a deer graze as a couple approached with a beautiful white German shepherd that was not on the leash. Needless to say the dog chased the deer. The couple chase and gave the dog commands to stop. They were still searching for the dog the next morning. I hope they found it!
Some owners don't understand the leash rules are for the protection of the pet.

Unfortunately, they are seriously considering reinstating a total ban on pets because of fools who abuse the privilege. I've seen lots of dogs on the beach, off leash. Lots of piles.

I just don't understand the "I'm special, the rules don't apply to me" mindset..
There should be a ''special fine'' for the special people. 1st offence- A warning, 2nd- Owner should be leashed to a tree for a day. 3rd- Owner banned from park

I don't understand the "Im special, the rules aren't for me." mindset either. Everyone will loose privileges because of the few who are unwilling to comply. I do think that there should be areas reserved for dogs/humans on the beach in every park that has enough land to accomodate. Steep fines are for those that won't comply with the rules.

PS. There isn't one legal beach where you can take your dog in ALL of LA County. That's really wrong. We pay so many fees in order to own a dog here.

Hello dog lovers & Nannette L.

Long Beach California is in L.A. County and we have a long beach, (hence our name), which runs for many miles through many communities. Our city fathers set up a large prime area of surf and sand just for dogs and their owners. No charges (free) -- Only charge is for parking and sometimes you can find free parking in adjacent residential areas.

The dog area is not fenced. It is marked only by signs. Your dog is expected to be leashed until you get to a sign, then you can release him and allow him to cavort and run free with the other dogs and their owners.

Our city fathers understand your dog might not be able to read, so we are tolerant when he strays outside this area. But, the owner is expected to get him back and to pick up his waste products. Some owners do a good job and some don't. We even provide a manned life guard station for you and your dogs. -- Welcome!

You are both right! I forgot. No wonder because for me that's over 40 miles away.

A perfect example of the dumb asses out there spoiling it for the rest of us.

One thing I hate about humanity is the "lowest common denominator" effect.
