Tips for Taking Dogs to the Beach
Activities for Dogs
Explore the Emerald Coast with a relaxing walk down the shore. The sand, crabs, and seaweed will be sure to keep your canine curious and excited. If you prefer an action-packed day with your dog, don’t forget to bring your dogs’ favorite ball or flying disc for fetch on the beach.
Bring Fresh Water and Shade
Consider the glimmering sun rays and Florida heat when bringing your pet out to the beach. It is important to provide shade for naps and freshwater for hydration. The beach can be tiring for all of us, including our furry family members.
Protect your Pet from UV Rays
Humans aren’t the only ones at risk when it comes to the dangers of UV rays. Pups are just as susceptible to sunburn when spending the day in the sun. Make sure to pack sunscreen made for dogs to keep your pooch protected from the sun.
Off-Leash Dog Parks:
Skip the sandy paws and soak up the Florida sun from an off-leash dog park. The Nancy Weidenhamer Dog Park is the ideal location to let your furry family members enjoy the fun while visiting the Emerald Coast. This Destin dog park consists of three acres of open space and shaded areas with lush grass, Pine trees, and Oak trees. The park includes separate areas for large dogs and small dogs. Admission is free and dog watering stations are available to hydrate your pet.
