My dog loves the beach. He loves digging and romping around in the sand. He doesn’t quite love swimming though. He will only go in the water to retrieve his tennis ball and swim as fast as he can to get out and then only stand in the water up to his paws. Whenever we have to go, he looks longingly at the beach like it is his second home. Well, where can us Washington residents go and take our dog out for a walk on the beach? If you are in Seattle, dogs are not allowed near the water on any public property in Seattle, and if you are caught, you may be handed a $500 ticket. The one beach in Seattle that does allow dogs is Magnuson Dog Park. Outside of Seattle, there is the Edmonds marina, Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island and Marymoor Park in Redmond. Here’s to good times at the beach!
