When you take your dog for a walk, you probably aren’t thinking about what the water is like, or whether the tide will be high or low.
But there’s an even better reason: We want to be sure our dogs are safe and healthy when they go out on the water.
The beach is where our dog lives, and the environment around it can be a source of danger and stress for your furry friends.
But with so many other activities to choose from, what are some of the best places to go for your pet?
We looked at some of our favorite spots around the world to get you started, but if you’d like to see a more in-depth look at each of the 50 or so beaches across the globe, we recommend checking out our Top 50 beaches infographic.1.
