On Jacksonville beach, you and your pooch best friend can splash in the surf, roam the sand, and meet up with other pawrents and pooches to your heart's content. Between the surfing, people watching, paddleboarding, swimming, exploring, and mingling, you and your pup are bound to have a busy day at Jacksonville Beach.
The beaches, of course, have a few regulations for you and your pooch, so make sure you understand all of them before gallivanting across the sand together. For starters, you and your pup are permitted on the beach only during specific times. The beach asks that you and your dog only walk on the beach before 9 am and after 5 pm, so please ensure that you abide by this in whatever area you're enjoying Jacksonville Beach.
More than that, the beach requests that you keep your dog on a leash. Although your dog is likely very well-behaved and listens to voice commands, the reality is, some pups simply aren't, and they can't make an exception for your well-behaved dog. Make sure your doggo's leash is a maximum of 12 feet long and that you're always prepared with poop bags for cleaning up your pup's messes!
As long as you abide by these few rules, we are sure that you and your pooch will have a wonderful time at Jacksonville Beach!
