Tips for Caring for your Dog at the Beach
(Reprinted with permission from Friends of Jupiter Beach.)

Dealing with the elements:

  • Give your dog a shady spot and plenty of fresh water. Don’t let your dog drink sea water.
  • Dogs sunburn, especially those with short hair, white fur, and pink skin. Limit your dog’s exposure and apply sunblock to his ears and nose 30 minutes before going outside.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to hot asphalt or sand, which can burn a dog’s paws.
  • Dogs are easy targets for sea lice and jellyfish. Check for daily water conditions.
  • Keep an eye on your dog. Running on the sand is strenuous exercise. A dog that is out of shape can easily pull a tendon or ligament.
  • Salt and other minerals in ocean water can damage your dog’s coat, so rinse him off at the end of the day.
  • At the ocean, be careful of strong tides and know if rip currents have been reported. Never leave your dog unattended in water.
