Grand Haven is a port city on the west coast of Michigan. The small city is beautiful year-round, but brings in the most tourism during the summer months thanks to its pretty beaches, parks, and the Coast Guard Festival. Grand Haven is the only city to be named Coast Guard City USA, and continues to protect the shores around the town, which allows the city to maintain their dog-friendly land, parks and fields.

Robbinson Forest is one of the best places to head to with your pup in Grand Haven. This 80-acre piece of land is filled with thick forests and winding trails, backed by open spaces and fields. Dogs are allowed to roam around off-leash on the trails and open areas, and have access to trash bins and benches along the way.

The Grand Haven State Park is the city's most popular beach, with over 43 acres of shoreline featuring sandy terrains and concrete walkways. Dogs are welcome at the park before 11 AM and after 5 PM during the summer months, and anytime during the winter while on a leash. There are picnic areas, benches, and trash bins.

Grand Haven has numerous other places for your dogs to play and exercise, including Bolt Park, Sluka Field, and Klempel Park with the option to head to 4 different animal hospitals when needed. The town continues to grow, and with it, so does its love for its four-legged residents.
