For the health and safety of both humans and dogs, no dogs are allowed on the beach. Children who play in the sand can become seriously ill by coming into contact with animal feces, which carries a host of infectious organisms. Just walking barefoot on the sand that has been contaminated can lead to infection and transmission of hookworms to humans. And your dogs are not immune to health problems as a result of romping on the beach- they may ingest contaminated sand and become infected with parasites or parvo (a common, often deadly disease) by coming into contact with dead sea animals or birds.
