Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is a sunny beach town located on the Gulf Coast and part of Jackson County. There are currently more than 17,000 residents in Ocean Springs. This, however, excludes the pet population, and as the people of Mississippi love their dogs, there are plenty of furry pals in Ocean Springs.

The main attraction for dogs in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is the Ocean Springs beach. The beaches of the neighboring cities of Biloxi and Gulfport do not allow dogs, and while the Jackson County regulations state that all dogs have to be leashed, dogs can run around on the beach, although it's dependent on the dogs ability to listen and actually adhere to voice commands such as "come" or "return."

The large number of dog lovers in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, have started a petition in 2014 also to get their own off-leash dog park. Until the construction of a dog park in Ocean Springs is approved and finalized, residents with a dog can turn to the dog park at the Popp’s Ferry Recreation Area in Biloxi, which includes an enclosed area for off-leash exercise.

Planning a visit to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and bringing pets along for the trip is a small trouble. As a resort town, Ocean Springs has plenty of pet-friendly hotels to choose from in different price ranges.

Certain campgrounds allow you to tie your dog to a post, so long as it doesn’t bother other campers.
