Dogs on the Beach

dogIn Avalon, leashed dogs are permitted on the beach only in the off season- September 30th through March 1st.  In season, dogs are not permitted on the beach.

Stone Harbor offers more options- dog walking is permitted on all beaches between 80th and 122nd Street from 7pm to sunset in season.  Off season (mid-September to mid-May) leashed dogs are permitted any time of the day.  The Stone Harbor Point Conservation area (south of 122nd Street) is off limits to dogs year round.

That said…

I walk on the beach every day year round, and there are often as many dogs as people :)

Over Memorial Day weekend, I was jumped on by an overzealous Doodle, and then decided to walk off the beach after spotting an unleashed Doberman!

I am happy to share the sand with your family pet, but PLEASE keep them on a leash.
