Pups Can Now Make Waves at Dog Friendly Beaches:

Dog Friendly BeachesTripsWithPets.com Launches Dog Beach Directory

South Portland, ME - July 22, 2012 - TripsWithPets.com has launched the most comprehensive online directory of dog friendly beaches – spanning all 50 states and Canada, too!  For dogs, there’s no better way to spend a summer day than digging in the sand, romping on the beach and body surfing in the waves.  Whether your pup is a water dog, sand dweller, or digger extraordinaire, now pet parents can help find the best beach to beat the heat with their four legged family members.

TripsWithPets’ new directory of dog friendly beaches offers something for every pup.  Looking for the calm cool breeze of a lakeside beach or the salty air of an ocean breeze?  Either way, their directory of dog beaches will help you find a beach to suit your dog’s style.  Included in each listing you will find location-specific requirements (leash/off-leash), whether there are any hour/time of year restrictions (e.g. before 9am, Memorial Day through Labor Day), along with the beach address, website link, map and contact information. 

But that’s not all!
