Why not let Fido enjoy the beaches and sand while he’s on vacation as well? In Miami, there are two sandy dog parks for letting your pet off leash for some beach fun. At Haulover Beach there’s a dog park and a schedule of on-beach dog friendly times. Hobie Beach, also known as Windsurfer Beach, is a dog friendly park but your pup has to be on leash. The North Shore Open Space Park also has beachfront dog parks for a breezy way to let your dog run around. Important: Don’t forget to bring a bowl with water; dogs can easily overheat in the sun, and while there are almost always doggy fountains on the grounds, you can never be too safe. Also, pick up after your pet, it’s usually a rule in the park to “scoop your poop” but also appreciated by dog friendly folk and pet free people alike. Spending time with your dog in Miami is a great way to relax and enjoy Miami’s beautiful beaches. When you’re on dry land, take Fido for a stroll along Lincoln Road, where all the fashionable South Beach dogs like to hang out.
