In Seabrook, we have seen many dogs experience their unforgettable first time at the beach! From jumping in the surf to sprinting up and down the shoreline to play fetch with a piece of treasured driftwood they found, the beach is a dog’s paradise.
What To Bring
Your dog may love splashing around in the ocean or along the freshwater outlets, but it’s a good idea to bring along plenty of fresh water and a dish for them to use, along with plenty of dog towels for cleanup after beach play. Depending on your dog’s eating regimen, some snacks or food will be appreciated by your pup! And of course, don’t forget to bring along some bags to clean up after your pet.
Their Favorite Toy For Fetch
Something about the beach brings out the playful side in all of us and especially in our four-legged friends. Bring along their favorite Frisbee or ball for hours of beach time exercise and fun.
No Leash Required
Though leashes are required throughout the town center and neighborhoods in Seabrook, once dogs hit the beach they can dart, prance, waddle, glide, sniff, and burrow free range – while obeying the human, of course.
Rinse Off The Sand
Some dog breeds have extra sensitive skin and the fine sand granules might cause irritation if the sand sits too long in their fur. If this might be your dog, you can rinse off your dog at The Salty Dog (and pick up some special treats, too!) or use what is provided at your vacation rental home. Please see The Salty Dog’s website for pricing on dog wash use.
Pay Attention To The Weather
During the summer months, always make sure to feel the dry sand to see if it’s a suitable temperature for sensitive paws. Seek out shade for your dog on exceptionally warm days and make sure they have had plenty of water.
We can’t wait to see your dog running free on the beach!
