Newport Beach has a great system that allows dogs on the beach in the morning and evening. No dogs from 10am-5pm. This is awesome for local residents with dogs who love the ocean. It's such a beautiful place, wouldn't it be great if our dogs could enjoy it with us?
Allowing them only during these off times would keep tourists from disrespecting the area, but locals (who are more responsible and actually care for the ocean) could walk their dogs before/after work.
As someone who does regular beach cleanups, the amount of trash that tourists leave is atrocious! I would be out there cleaning up even more often if it could double as a dog walk.
Any dog owners out there agree?
