We want to hear from you
Dog-friendly? You betcha! The Long Beach Peninsula is a doggy nirvana. Let your canine discover the wonder of miles of open beach and 8.5 miles of the Discovery Trail which is a paved ocean bordering path.
Here’s the deal:
Leash laws are not typically enforced on the beach, provided dogs are controlled and well-behaved. However, be aware that there is an 8-foot leash law here in Pacific County [pdf] and also within the city limits of Long Beach [code] and Ilwaco [code] , and Washington State Parks [code] with accompanying fines if Rover gives reason for the laws to be enforced.
Of course, any dogs without the best of manners should be properly restrained wherever they go, owners should clean up after Fifi or Fido (yes, even on the beach!), and everyone should be aware that the hard pack part of our beach is a State Highway.
Our most dog-friendly businesses have this symbol listed by their names:
| = Pets Welcome
Please show them your appreciation by patronizing them, and let them know you heard about them here on funbeach.com. Many of these dog-lovin’ businesses offer treats and cool drinks of fresh water, so be sure to ask!
Don’t have a dog of your own? Couldn’t bring Fluffy with you this trip? Check out our local Humane Society, where you can hang out for a fur fix or take a dog for a walk…or even take one home.
Bring Rover to the beach. He’ll love you for it!
