Ocean Beach Dog Beach Activities:
Activities at Ocean Beach Dog Beach center around the canine set. Bring a ball or a frisbee for your dog to run after. Many visitors bring their beach chairs and settle in, talking to other dog owners and watching their animals enjoy themselves. For a more sedate time, you can also walk with your pet along the paved path that runs beside the water.
Highs and Lows at Ocean Beach Dog Beach:
Dogs are allowed to run free on the beach, but must be leashed as you take them to and from your car.
Unfortunately, your fellow dog owners don't always clean up after their pets. Watch where you step.
In summer, San Diego beaches are subject to red tides.
It's just as well that this part of Ocean Beach is set aside for the dogs. Dangerous rip tides make it unsafe to swim here."
