dog beach

If your dog is a part of your family, then you’re going to love Laguna Beach. Our seaside town is one of the most dog-friendly places you’ll encounter in Southern California, with many opportunities to enjoy a day out with your furry best friend

The Laguna Beach Dog Park

This expansive park provides plenty of space for your dog to run free. Located about three miles inland from the Pacific Coast Highway on Laguna Canyon Road, the Laguna Beach Dog Park is open daily except for Wednesdays when it is closed for maintenance

Dog Friendly Beaches

Your dog probably loves to feel the sand between his toes just as much as you do, so lucky for you many of the beaches in Laguna Beach allow dogs. When the beaches are busiest from June 1 to September 15, dogs are only allowed on the beach before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m., but that still gives you plenty of time to throw sticks, chase waves and enjoy the sunset

Dog Friendly Restaurants

If you enjoy dining al fresco, then you’ll be happy to know that many of the restaurants in Laguna Beach allow dogs to join their owners on their patios. In fact, you may be delighted to find that many of these establishments offer bowls of water and even treats for your best friend. Some of the best spots in town to take your dog include:

If you don’t see your favorite restaurant on this list, try calling ahead. Many Laguna Beach restaurants will accommodate your dog – you just have to ask

Dog Friendly Stores

Need a new chew toy? Trying to find some organic dog food? You’ll find all of that and more in Laguna Beach. Coast Pet Supply and Grooming is your one-stop shop for premium pet food, and they also have a full-service grooming salon – which is especially helpful after a messy and fun day on the beach. The Laguna Beach Dog Company blends the artistic sensibilities of the town’s art community with all things dog-related, so if you’re looking for designer duds for your dog, this is the place to go. If your dog has any food sensitivities, the nice folks at Naked Dog Bistro can help make sure your pooch is well-fed. They offer a full range of gluten-free dog foods and treats as well as other great dog products in their upscale boutique

Dog Friendly Hotels

Last but not least, if you’re visiting Laguna Beach for the first time or you have family and friends in town who are bringing their dog, there are many fine hotels that welcome dogs, including Casa Laguna, The Pacific Edge Hotel, The Casa del Camino, The Montage, and The Surf and Sand. Some charge an extra fee per night for dogs, but it’s money well spent when you get to bring your best friend with you
