Tips for Keeping Your Dog Safe at the Beach  

Use dog-safe sunscreen, a hat, a beach umbrella, and limited sun exposure to prevent sunburn.

Sun Protection

Use a dog life jacket for weak swimmers. Watch for dangerous rip currents that can pull dogs out to sea.

Water Safety  

Bring plenty of fresh water and take frequent breaks to prevent dehydration and overheating.


Walk on wet sand or bring booties to protect paws from hot sand that could cause burns.

Hot Sand

Check rules and restrictions first. Respect on-leash requirements and cleanup rules.

Pet-Friendly Beaches

Know the signs of heat stroke in dogs like panting, lethargy, and vomiting. Move to shade and cool down immediately.
