Rosie's Dog Beach in Long Beach, CA

Not only does the city of Long Beach pride itself on its wide array of outdoor activities for its human residents but also the needs of its animal citizens are major concerns as evidenced by the numerous pet hospitals, pet supply stores, pet clothing stores and yes...Long Beach has its own dog beach. Rosie's Dog Beach in Long Beach, CA is an dog's delight.

As we have just moved to Long Beach we have decided to explore our new hometown. Fortunately our dog (named D-O-G) is able to participate in our adventures. This seven year German Shepard grew up in the desert environment of the Inland Empire in Riverside County. You can imagine his shock when confronted by the roaring ocean waves and sandy beach. He was sure the seaweed was edible.sand castles, beach

Rosie's Dog Beach is not a fenced in area but dogs are allowed off-leash.After returning home and researching on the web I discovered the orange cones define the boundaries of the off-leash area. For our first visit I was hesitant to allow D-O-G off his leash. This was a new experience for both of us. Suggestion: Rules and guidelines should be posted and easily identified by new visitors.

Rosie's Beach is 3 acres of land dedicated to dogs. The beach is located at 5000 E. Ocean Blvd. Metered parking is available and it is recommended that dog owners bring bags for waste disposal. A doggie water fountain is located at the entrance but my dog disdained the use and waited to drink from my water bottle.

If I could convey the pleasure D-O-G and I shared as we walked to the rolling waves, smelled the ocean water and gazed out to the horizon. There was a sense of wonder as we absorbed the beauty of nature.  We will be returning to Rosie's Dog Beach in Long Beach, CA. I have promised him it will be a part of our weekly routine. (He barked with delight at the news.)

But we have other parks to explore. Long Beach and the surrounding area is home to more than seventeen dog parks. Lot's of fun adventures await us.

Kristal, my golden retrievers would have loved to go to this dog beach. How nice for all the dog owners in the Long Beach area.

Kristal, this sounds like great fun for the dogs, but I'm not sure that Willie the Labradoodle would understand the concept of boundaries.

Kathy ~ It's fantastic, can't wait to take D-O-G back for his next visit.

Patricia ~ I wasn't sure about the boundaries and had to go home and do more research on the internet.
