Surf’s Up: Dog Beach Etiquette

dog-on-beach

Living in sunny San Diego with a pup has its perks – not only are many San Diego restaurants dog friendly, but dogs are allowed to enjoy the surf and sun on the beach! Check your local spot for regulations on dogs. Some beaches allow dogs off-leash during certain times of the year, some only allow on-leash and some don’t allow dogs at all.  It’s a great advantage for families with dogs, but pet parents must also remember the do’s and don’ts of dog etiquette. When bringing your dog to the beach, remember these important tips:

    1. Do bring a leash. Keep them safe when walking to and from the beach. Once you arrive, if the beach you are attending is an off-leash spot, then release your pup’s leash and harness to give them the ultimate, enjoyable experience.
    2. Don’t bring your dog if they don’t have all their shots. This is a no brainer!
    3. Do be aware of heavy surf. Even if your dog is a good swimmer, they may not be able to manage through some big waves. Keep them out of the water or only up to their paws if the surf is big. A float coat is ideal for riding the big waves. Be sure to always supervise your dog while swimming.
    4. Don’t let your dog drink ocean water. The salt water in the ocean will make them sick and cause vomiting or diarrhea. We NAP-GULPYrecommend you bring fresh, clean water with you to the beach. Gulpy water dispensers have an attached cup that makes it easy for dogs to slurp water.
    5. Do walk your dog before going to the beach. It’s easy for dogs to get excited at the beach with all the sights and
      smells, but with a little exercise beforehand, they’ll be nice and calm. Taking them out beforehand can also encourage them to go to the bathroom before heading to the beach. If you plan to take your dog to the beach after work or don’t have time for the walk, consider this dog walking service from our friends at rover.com.
    6. Don’t let Bowser walk on hot sand. If the beach sand is hot on your feet, then it’s definitely going to be hot on your summit trexpup’s paws. If it is too hot, we recommend covering their paws in shoes, like the paw-protective Summit Trex Boots.
    7. Do bring poop clean up bags. This is important! Not only is it disrespectful to not pick up after your own dog, but it’s just plain gross.
    8. Don’t let your dog visit others without permission. Some people may be scared of dogs or have a dog that does not do well with others. Ask before you let your pup visit.
    9. Do bring a toy. Floating toys like the Hydro Disc are great to take to the beach – it’ll keep you and your pup entertained!Chewey_DogTag_04_Resized
    10. Don’t bring a dog that won’t listen. If your dog isn’t properly trained to be out and about in public, then it’s best to keep them at home.
    11. Do have fun!

The same rules apply when bringing your dog to a restaurant or dog park.

MUTT’S HAPPENING: Got Love?

Valentines Set

Ah, Valentine’s Day – the day of love. We hope you’re ready for it because we are! We’ve gotten into the serious Valentine’s Day spirit with our newest Valentine’s Day Collection, available in stores and online now!

One of our favorite things about this collection is not only the large amount of red and pink items involved, but that each of these items can be worn or played with any day of the year, not just Valentine’s Day. Our favorites include the Kiss Me Tee (make sure to play the song “Kiss Me” in the rIMG_9545background when wearing this tee), the Hearts on Pink Bowtie (perfect for a candlelit dinner), the Hearts Fleece Sweater (stay warm and be festive at the same time!) and the Love Tank (who says no to rhinestones?!).

What’s something that dogs love? Plush toys of course! The toys in this collection are not only adorbs, but are SUPER SOFT – like soft enough that you might want to steal it from fido and snuggle with it yourself. One in particular, the plush hippo, isrIMG_9475 insanely soft and definitely cuddle-material! Other ones we love? The fun, furry heart toy and the durable Humunga Lips toy!

This collection screams Valentine’s Day – we hope you love it as much as we do! If you’re interested in celebrating the holiday of love with us, we will be holding special Valentine’s Day parties at our La Jolla and Solana Beach locations! Visit our La Jolla store on Saturday, February 6th from 12-3PM for their party, complete with a Kissing Booth and Paw Print Art, and visit our Solana Beach store on Sunday, February 7th from 5-6PM for games and free play in their yard.
