A beautiful day at the dog beach!
Savannah had her first experience at a "beach" here and she LOVED it. There were many friendly dogs, she didn't need to stay leashed, and she just made so many friends!

Savannah & Cloie LOVE the dog beach!!! So do their mommies!!! Thank goodness we have one!
My dog LOVES this beach. It's a little bit of a crab & mussel graveyard at times, but the dogs LOVE it and have so much fun. Most of the time, people are very responsible with their dogs and most of the dogs are so well behaved. There is the occasional phone talker...but all in all its a very good time!
This was the first time I took Bella to a beach. The people were friendly and she played with the dogs a lot... even though I think she enjoyed the dogs more than the beach. The beach was a bit awkward with lots of barnacle but she still had a great time.

    Great Experience

    Visited a couple of weeks ago with my 5 month old doodle "Gus"
    Well behaved dogs, yes, they were off leash, but the owners where right on top of things.
    The water was clean. Parking close by.
    Bring a lot of water. I would go back!
    Only drawback were the flies...they showed up after a couple of hours, we had to leave because they were biting.

  • Aug. 18, 2019

    The beach is lovely, many dogs are friendly but there are a few dogs where the owner seems to have little control over their dog. I saw one dog marking on a person’s beach chair and others growl but then there was also a lot of friendly dog play. I was wary of letting our dog off leash because some of the growling. Mainly large and medium sized dogs with a few terrier and poodle mixes.

  • Aug. 17, 2019
    Love It!!!!

    We have been coming here for years. Some of the reviews complain about biting flees and smells. I never experienced any of it...but like any other beach the atmosphere relies on the weather and the direction of the breeze. Our dog loves to swim and run and the fact that leashes are not requires makes an enjoyable and relaxing day for our whole family. If your dog is not good with other dogs approaching them and running around...don’t bring them here. Lots of dogs running free and they will probably not do too well. People have actually acted angry about dogs approaching their leashed dogs and wanting to play. Just know that this is an OFF Leash park
    And owners will not always be right by theirs dogs to keep them away from yours.

  • Jun. 11, 2019

    My Lab Lucy and I cannot wait for an another fun summer at the beach🎉 Lucy loves swimming and when I discovered this beach were dogs could be off leash and swim in the bay my summer was made! All of the pet owners seemed to keep a good eye on their dogs, most of the dogs at the beach were friendly and on the bigger size. If you have a dog who loves to swim or just run around I would 100% recommend the Long Port dog beach!!

    Longport Dog Beach June 2019

    This was our first time at the Dog Beach. My mom and I took our dog Pixie. We arrived a little after 10:30 on Monday June 3 and there were already about 10 dogs there. The beach was clean. We had no trouble getting a parking spot. There is a dumpster in the parking lot because there are no trash cans. Across the street is the fishing pier where there are trash cans and two porta potties. We didn't experience any problems.

    Great doggie beach!

    There are no trash cans, so u have to take your poop bags with u when u leave, unfortunately some people conveniently forget and there are bags of poop sitting on the sand. Other than that, it is a nice girls run and play in the ocean.

    Fun Day @ the Beach 2018

    Summer 2018

    We arrived at this beach on a beautiful July afternoon on a Monday. It was busy but not crowded.

    I lucked out with a great parking space right near the beach. Though I can see where if we arrive at another point we might not of been so lucky.

    We kept both of our dogs on lead, until we were sure that they could both be trusted to stay with us. There are a lot of other dogs that came to say hello, but none were aggressive or intimidating to my two. My dogs are work driven, and thus chased the ball endlessly as we threw it into the surf.

    It was great that people came and went with dogs the time we were there on lead. At no time did it feel like any dog was not being controlled by a human in someway. It was so great to see so many dogs wanting to play with each other, their humans, or just in the water.

    We will be back!

    On this particular day the waves were nice but not too big, and the water was spectacularly warm and inviting. I had brought a 5 gallon jug of water to clean house and the dogs off with, and I advise it if your dog lens itself to embracing the sand.

    If you have not had success at other beaches, I would encourage you to check this one out.

    Awesome day at the beach!!

    Was a little hesitant to try, but boy are we glad we did!! We went on a Thursday afternoon. There were about 20 dogs or so and most of them were extremely friendly. There were a few who were aggressive, but the owners kept them on a leash. Super clean beach, friendly owners . Our dog had thee best time. It was a great day watching all of the dogs romp in the ocean and roll around in the sand. Everyone picked up after their pet. Plenty of parking and a Wawa close by. No parking fees or beach tags required.

    No parking, not worthwhile

    The beach is noce IF they let you park on the road leading up to it. There is precious little parking in the two lots. Maybe enough for 40 cars absolute max and it shares parking with a fishing area. I drove 2 hours with my dog and arrived to no parking. Two police officers were there directing traffic and not allowing street parking. I asked if there was more parking and was told no and to go home. I drove around in circles for 35 minutes and could not park. There is no way to park anywhere else and walk. There are no beaches or dog parks within an hour of there that don't require you to be a registered member. I left and will not return. Having a dog with me i couldn't even go anywhere else. You have been warned. Probably only worth checking the lot if you live locally.

    Flies, dodo, and pheeeeew (Not suitable for man and beast together)

    I was here June 2018
    a) Flies: are everywhere at this dog beach, and they bite
    b) Dodo: dog feces everywhere
    c) Pheeeeew: It stunk like hell! I was not a math major but ( b yields (delta) c + a)
    In the alternate, I was at Wildwood dog beach (Poplar Ave) last year and it is head and shoulders above this one.

    Unlike Wildwood beach, this location is far from the 'manning crowd', and is not easy to find, and I believe the reason for its poor upkeep. It seems like an afterthought as opposed to a well thought out planned beach for humans and dogs.

    I wrote that it is not suitable for man and beast together because it isn't. I saw large dogs enjoying it, I saw dogs urinating and defecating everywhere. Some owners picked up....(that was the rarety), and thus 'delta flies and pheeeew'.
    Don't take me wrong it warmed the 'cockles of my heart' to see all those dogs happy. Unfortunately that is where is started and that is where it ended. I could not stay mainly because of the flies attacking me and my wife and the stink was unbearable.

    In the alternate, the location in Wildwood is overseen, and is in the middle of the regular beach and off the boardwalk. It therefore is seen, monitored, and maintained. This beach is not.
    I would not bring my small dog here again due to the failure to maintain this beach properly.

  • More than a year ago

    I'm so mad we waited until after summer to check this place out! All the dogs were friendly, all the owners kept an eye on their dog(s) it was super clean and since it's on the bay side the water was no where as rough as the ocean side which was a relief.. can't wait to go back again

    A great family day!

    2017 September. We just discovered this beach and were amazed with the people and dogs! Dogs and people of all shapes and sizes were interacting. Dogs were playing with each other, people were playing with dogs besides their own, and everyone was having a wonderful time! It's not often that dogs are able to be off leash, and having this opportunity at a beach is truly a unique experience.

  • More than a year ago
    Great Dog Beach

    The dogs and the people we met here were all very friendly. The signs say "No Swimming" and that dogs must be on leash, but people were swimming and many of the dogs were off leash, which I was happy to see. The dogs need a beach to run free on, and this one fits the bill. I did notice some dog poop high up on the beach by the dunes, which is sad because if dog owners abuse the beach, the authorities are likely to get tougher on enforcement if dog owners aren't willingly responsible. That said, the main part of the beach was clean and we enjoyed our day, and our dog loved it. We will be back often.

    Loverly day at the doggie beach

    I highly recommend this doggie beach!! Everyone was friendly, including the dogs. It was clean and free!! It was our first time and we plan to go back!! If the parking lot is full I'm not sure where alternate parking is. Some parked on the road and unfortunately got tickets. The path in is a little hazardous for someone with physical limitations. I had to help my mom down the rocky path. It was crowded but if ur willing to walk to the far end you probably would find its less crowded. I wish I knew about this year's ago. My Maggie is 10 and she has arthritis so she tired out pretty fast.

    Best off leash park

    We have been going here for a few years, with different dogs as our pups aged and passed away. We recently moved closer and have been here at least a few times a week for the last 3 months. Here's the deal- off season, people are pretty good about picking up after their pets, but there are always going to be the ones who dont keep a close eye on thier dog and dont catch them pooping. Stop complaining and pick it up yourself if it bothers you. I always bring at least 3 bags and i will offer one to people who dont look like they are going to do the right thing. Subtle, i know. Here's the thing with trash- last year was an issue, the cans were overflowing, it was gross. There was a dispute on who was responsible for pick up. So they took away the cans altogether. Earlier in the year, there was a dumpster on the other side of the road to use. Now, as of a few weeks ago, there is a dumpster in the parking lot at the far end. Supposedly it will be maintained by ocean city. Parking- yeah, not fun but guess what, its a free park/beach and one of the only ones that is actually off leash (for those that dont know, most OC beaches are pay) If you are worried about it being too crowded, go early or later in the day. As low tide has been around 3-5pm, thats when we go and its busy but not crazy. Check the tide chart for the area as the beach gets very small at high tide. Overall, people are nice and the dogs are friendly but there will always by "disagreements" between dogs, just dont freak out! People that cant or wont control their dogs are usually called out and they leave out of shame, which is good. I will miss this park greatly when we leave this area as there are very few off leash beaches like this in the country.

    Great Dog Beach Day

    May 28, 2017 This is our 3rd year coming here and it is a CLEAN, nice, beach full of dogs and humans who keep an eye on them. No issues between dogs, no people not picking up, just dogs and people interacting and enjoying the day. The beach itself is good, flat no drop off. There are porta potties in the parking lot across the street by the fishing pier. Don't believe the haters, this is a CLEAN, good dog beach with attentive owners and dogs just enjoying their day at the beach. To my knowledge it is the ONLY off leash dog beach in NJ so stop b##ching about the parking, facilities, no life guards... Just bring your dog and be thankful !

  • More than a year ago

    I can't wait until this place is shut down. People don't deserve this. They can't keep it clean.

  • More than a year ago

    This dog beach is a disgrace and the reason why many places will not allow dogs on beaches because humans are lazy and do not clean up after their pet. I live 5 minutes away and have tried so many times to go this beach. It has always been a negative experience. The smell of trash filled with overflowing poop is sickening. It is sad that what could be a wonderful experience is not because of a small percent of people who feel they can just leave the waste at the beach. Lazy and shameful. and why cant the trash be picked up daily during the summer months?

    Nice beach

    Hello Everyone, I am also a doggie mommy and love to bring my dog to this park. While i haven't been to this beach in 3 years, since my baby passed away. I am planning on a visit with my new baby girl. I ask other doggie mommies and daddies to please include the date of your visit in your message. This way we know if this are getting better or worse. Much appreciated and I hope to see you at this beach soon. June 26, 2016

  • More than a year ago

    Our dog loves the water. We take on the East river daily but I cant swim with her. So we found this spot. Beach was pretty clean, soft sand, water crystal clear and no problems with other dogs. We stayed two nights and loved every minute there. As the title says, perfect.

    Beach Needs monitoring

    We have tried a couple other beaches before this one. here is what we liked and didn't like.
    Pros: 1) off leash 2) most of the people we encountered were friendly and so were their dogs 3) not too big

    Cons: 1) parking lot was small and filthy (trash cans over flowing). The trek on the highway was a bit treacherous if you park there. 2) trail from lot to beach was narrow and awkward 3) no toilet facilities for people (i guess we are supposed to use the bushes?) 4) No life guard or park ranger or police officer to cite the ignorant people for not cleaning up after their dogs.

    Over all we had a good experience there the day we went. The parking lot was atrocious, and so was the small winding trail (which we missed the entrance to because it was blocked by a mountain of trash in front of it). As from reading some reviews from people who had negative experiences, I say give it another chance. There will be ignorant people anywhere you go. Fortunately we did not run into any on the day we went. The beach is not too big but it is a little small, gets crowded real fast. When you don't have enough room to spread out, well things will happen. I think if there was a ranger or beach patrol to write citations for not being a responsible pet owner, the ignorant may be more inclined to be more responsible.

    A Real Beach

    I have taken Jeter to other dog beaches. This beach is human size, clean and has port o potty and free parking. Can't beat this spot! My weekend home is in AC. It's close to that and the beach is big enough to lounge on. Next time I'm bringing my beach gear and we will stay all day on another 78 degree day. I wish I could post the video. I love this place more than Jeter.

    Aggressive Dogs

    People ruin this experience by letting their aggressive dogs off lead. Without naming any specific breeds, so the crazies don't attack my post and miss the point, some of the dogs need to stay on a leash. They all go a little nuts for the first 10 minutes but SOME get worse instead of calming down. The worse thing about it is the fact that the owners are in such denial. If you have an aggressive breed... please don't come and if you do... keep your dog on a leash.

  • More than a year ago
    Heaven for dogs

    This place was great! My dog LOVES other dogs and she's half lab, so she loves water. Everyone was really nice and responsible with their dogs, I ran out of poop bags pretty quickly though, so make sure to bring more than you think you'll need. And definitely bring water. My silly dog kept drinking the salt water so she got sick and I didn't want it to get worse so we left after only an hour ???? but for dogs that don't drink saltwater I highly recommend it!

    Super dog beach!!!

    I have used this beach for walking my dogs since 1975. It has always been a great dog walking beach and back then you could even drive on this beach. I am so glad Atlantic County has such a wonderful place for our best friends to play, especially OFF LEASH which is almost unheard of these days. I now live in Florida and unfortunately it is a very unfriendly dog state. Near where I live in Melbourne there is only ONE dog beach which recently opened, it is only a block long, there are rocks and coral in the shallow waters which makes it almost impossible for humans or dogs to walk thru to deeper water to swim, and dogs must be on a leash. I don't even use this beach because it is barely worth it. So I stick to my inground pool and acre yard with outings to other fun places to socialize my dogs. Florida needs to change her attitude about mans best friend.

    Perfect beach

    Love this beach. We go there all the time and spend the whole day; we don't go to any other beach anymore. The waves are not huge as it's on an inlet, so the dogs can really swim far out. Plenty of room to get a little space if you want it, and rarely have ever seen a problem between dogs. Most owners are friendly and good about picking up after their dogs. Wish there were more beaches like this.

    Beach dog park

    It's a 2h drive from Wilmington DE. But totally worth it for a day trip. Make sure you make a potty break (a human one) before you get there because there's no kind of amenities but hey, free parking! We found the place pretty clean but went on a Friday. Of course, it's not the nicest beach every but it's perfect for doggies!
    It's just like a dog park, if you know your dog behaves and feel comfortable in a dog park, you're good to go and you and your pup will have a blast. If you have doubts about that and plan on keeping your dog leashed, don't go or at least not a busy week-end day. We found all dog and their owners very friendly, we had a blast!

    Took a long time to find a nice place to go with my dogs,and then I came across Longport Dog Beach. The whole family had such a great time running in the sand and enjoying the ocean.

    Bad beach, irresponsible owners

    We usually go to the "other" dog beach but decided to try this one. First about the beach: the waves were small but still too much for my dog.
    The owners: One person had a un-neutered male pit bull. The owner was on one end of the beach, the dog was on the other peeing on these peoples belongings who had a dog who wasn't great with other dogs and they were trying to responsibly keep away from other dogs! When the owner of pit bull heard her dog was peeing on peoples things she said "well it's a dog beach". Most irresponsible owner I've ever met! Then this small dog came up to our belongings and peed on it! The owners apologized profusely (at least they apologized) but it caused many other dogs to investigate our things and I had to shoo them away. Won't be going back, we will stick to the other dog beach with more responsible owners.

  • More than a year ago
    Highly recommend

    We took our 8 month old mastiff here and he had a blast. We took him off the leash and he ran around and went in the water with all the other dogs. There were probably about 40-50 dogs there. The beach was clean and owners were all friendly. Wished we lived closer, we would be there all the time. Bring toys, poop bags, and water.

  • More than a year ago
    A lot of fun!

    My dog had an absolute blast being able to swim and play without having to be on a leash. The only downside was that people don't seem to pick up after their dogs. It would be helpful if a "doggy disposal unit" was installed for those who don't have bags. That way there would not be an excuse! Otherwise, most of the dogs that were there were well-socialized. I recommend it!!

  • More than a year ago

    I love the beach but I hate leaving my dogs home. They already have to stay home all day during the week when I'm working so when I do things on the weekends I try to make sure they're dog friendly activities. This beach is wonderful! It took me a little over an hour to get there (and about 13 in tolls round trip) and we had a blast! My two dogs and I weren't there for the whole day but we plan on going in the morning next time so we can take full advantage :)

    Was so excited to hear there was a dog friendly beach near our favorite beach destination OCNJ. DISAPPOINTING for both my husband and I and our dog. It's dirty, narrow and usually filled with sharp shells, rocks an Dead Sea life and birds, as well as dog poop. Can we have a real Dog Beach? Come on there's hundreds of miles of beach in NJ, can't we give a small nice section for dogs. I don't even want to walk there myself let alone let my dog stumble around on broken glass and trash. WAKE UP NJ, get a real dog beach. Looking for better beaches that include my dog on vacation.

    Awesome summer fun

    We were trying to find something fun to do with our dog and knew the regular beaches were off limits this time of year. Thanks to "Bring Fido" we found this beach. Our beagle, Yeager, had a great time. He loved being off leash, investigating the sand & surf, playing fetch. At first he was hesitant to go near the water, but after some time got adventurous . Only negative, there's no sign. We pased it and had to pay the bridge toll to turn around.

    Nice beach for the dogs

    Took my two huskies there on 8/12 and they had a blast. First time on a beach in the summer. Both my dogs were on long leashes. They are very sociable but it would be nice if everyone kept their dogs on leash, or at the least kept an eye on them. I had one dog that wouldn't leave me alone as I sat in the sand watching my two play. As much as I love dogs I don't always want a strangers dog walking all over me. And, my female dog can get a bit protective of me around dogs she is not familiar with. It is just common courtesy to keep a watch on your dogs. My dogs love to play with other dogs but there is a proper way to greet to avoid any issues between the dogs. And, if your dog is not friendly or meets well, then don't bother bringing them to a social setting like this.

    Not Clean

    The beach itself is nice and dogs there were friendly but the fact that nobody cleans up after their dog makes this beach not worth the trip. The amount of dog poo in the surf and on the beach is awful, disgusting and unsanitary.

    Couldn't live without doggie beach

    This beach is really in Egg Harbor Township, not Somers Point or Longport. I can see why people get confused. We lost a lot of the dunes due to Sandy. I hope the State can help out with this. I breed Golden Doodle and I have a doodle Romp every year at this beach. We have lots of fun. Most people are friendly and are smart enough not to bring a dog who is nasty. There are sometimes altercations, but we have to remember they are dogs and just like us they don't always get along. 8/10/2013

    dog attack

    My family took our 10 month old lab to the dog beach Sunday, August 4. We were there less than 5 minutes when our dog was attacked while my teenage son held had her on her leash. a white hair male jogger was cursing at his light colored lab type dog when it ran to my son & dog and bit my dogs face. The man kept jogging. We were in shock. A lovely lady from Philly offered us a washcloth and soap to clean our dogs bleeding cuts. Many others asked if she was ok but the man who owned the other dog didnt stop. He later returned jogging with his dog still off leash. NO apology or concern. I told him my dog was bleeding and all he said was "what do you want me to do". People told him to get off the beach. We took our puppy home and she has 3 cuts. Fortunately my son was not harmed. A smaller child may have been. There is no posting as to who to call if you have a problem here. We'll never be back. We do thank the kind woman who helped us. If you go ...beware and don't let small child hold on to your dog. The child may get bitten as well as your dog.

    I have been wanting to go down for a few years and I finally made it. There was such a wide range of dogs from young to old (like my guy) big to small and they all got along so great. . All the people were very nice and all the dogs had such a great time. I will be going back again.

    worst trip ever

    The beach was filthy. There was broken glass and shells all over the beach, my stepson cut his foot. Near the surf it was all muddy and mucky and full of seaweed. We drove 4hrs to get there, stayed for 2hrs, and drove back home. Had I known the beach was in that type of condition I def wouldn't have made the trip.

    Be considerate of the birds

    The east end of this beach is one of the few shore locations left where black skimmers and terns can nest and raise their young. The sanctuary is marked off, but some visitors do not understand that the birds nest amid the shells on the beach. Young birds have a tough enough time surviving raccoons, foxes, ghost crabs and predatory birds; please make sure that dogs do not get in among them and kill or harass them. 7-16-13

Anonymous in Pottstown is an don't bring your dogs to a dog park if they don't get along with other dogs. that is the point of a dog park, to let your dogs loose..she talks about common sense but it looks like miss Pensatucksy doesn't have any!

    It's changed

    I live 15 minutes away. This used to be a great place, but as more people learn about it, it's become disgusting because people don't clean up after their dogs. Or people who don't have well trained dogs don't watch them. It's not the dogs fault. I suppose if you're just visiting this area you may not give the respect a place like this deserves. No other beach in this area allows dogs in the summer! Give this place more respect.

    Will not be back

    I brought my two malamutes down to have fun, or so I thought. My daughter had gone back to get our chairs and in the meantime, a couple came in with their Aussie and let him off leash right in front of my dogs who were on leash. My dogs were on leash for a reason, they didn't know the other dogs and when this dog ran into my dogs faces,, he started a fight. I got pulled over backwards and fell onto one of the dogs, mine or theirs. Fortunatel, nobody was hurt, but they didn't even ask if I was okay, just walked away and left me laying there with not even a care in the world ! One gentleman came over and asked if I was okay and offered to help. At least there was one decent person at this place. After that incident, my dogs remained on leash as it got very crowded. Not everybody cleaned up after their dogs as was obvious by the amount we saw up by the grass. After the boat activity in the inlet picked up, the water started to stink and so did my dogs. I will say they had fun, but after the incident, they remained on their long lines and we stayed at the end where it wasn't going to cause any problems. My dogs aren't fighters, but you DON'T let another dog off leash and run into the faces of dogs they don't know, it's only common sense.

    First off, FREE PARKING. That is one of the best parts, the other best part is the fact that your dog can run around off-leash and socialize with everyone else! Everyone was very friendly, as were the dogs. Our dog (yellow lab golden retriever mix) is only 9 months old and this location was her first experience at the beach and had a BLAST! There were dogs of all shapes and sizes, and the owners were fabulous as well. The only "negative" experience was one woman who had her dog on a very long leash and was annoyed when anyone else's dog went up to play with her dog. If you are looking for quiet alone time with your dog, this probably isn't the best beach for you (unless you walk further down away from the bridge, that area seemed a little less dog-populated). However, if you want to meet nice people and give your dog the freedom to run and play off leash in the sand and in the surf - this is the place to be!

    Best Day Ever

    Definitely worth the trip! The beach was clean and most dogs were well mannered. We ran into one woman who said her dog was not dog-friendly (but was still off-leash for some reason?!?) but other than that everybody was having a great time! Beach was clean, I didn't see any dog waste that hadn't been cleaned up, and we were there for over 3 hours. Water is a little murky, but fine for the dogs to swim in!

    Muddy and Dirty

    I took my yellow lab there for a day trip and left pretty disappointed. There's not many large swimming areas for dogs near Philadelphia so I was excited at the prospect of a dog beach. However, the beach was very muddy near the water, there was one spot where it was wet sand but everyone was packed into that little area. Also the first 6 or 7 feet of water was either muddy or poopy - I couldn't decide which. It was an ok area, but nearly worth the tolls on the parkway when it wasn't that clean.

    Poop Beach

    Gee, did you run out of bags? Ask someone! We all carry extras. My grandson and I take the dogs to the beach a few times a year. Many times it was fine although crowded. The last time it was disgusting with turds baking in the sun, floating in on the tide, and when my grandson went to collect a particularly large and pretty shell, he uncovered a huge pile. Disgusting. A few ill mannered dog owners ruin a beautiful beach for the rest. I don't like walking barefoot stepping in landmines. And certainly won't lay down a blanket next to a dog pile. Besides being unsightly, disgusting and harmful to humans, dogs spread germs to each other too. Owners have caused dogs to become unwelcome and banned from so many places they would enjoy! A little care and consideration please.

    This is our 2nd year going. I have a pitbull and most of my friends/circle do too that are so extremely well trained and behaved. We have been going now for 2 summers and LOVE it each time. I am not a fan of unaltered dogs but we have yet to have a problem with any. We only go for 2 hours at a time, but I have brought a few different friends and they all love it. I can't wait to go again tomorrow!!! Thanks for keeping this beach out there for us dog lovers who want to sun, swim and have fun in the ON SEASON WITH OUR DOGS!~!

    A little too crowded

    It was the 1st time for my 2 boxers on a beach this past Memorial Day holiday. We arrived to the beach around 10 a.m. and there was enough space to move around and for the dogs to run. But as the day got older, it became too crowded! Some of the dogs were ill-mannered and not so friendly as well. I saw a dog mark his territory on someone's beach chair/towel and the owner of the dog could care less. Another guy had a squeaky toy and all the dogs were running down the beach following this guy while everyone else is trying to call their dogs back. Well all in all, my dogs had a fun time, but some of the owners need to be a little more considerate.

    Actually it is MALIBU BEACH, EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, NJ. Not Longport. Not SP.
    Too crowed these past few years and humans don't pick-up after their dogs. Please be considerate of others, and more importantly for the environment and health of all. Thank you!

    I took my pitbull Savannah and a friends pitbull, Honey, there on Saturday (8.13.11) and they had the time of their lives. They ran, swam, played for a few hours. If you don't get there early enough parking can be a pain as the lot fills up quickly, but we got there around 11 and we didn't have too much trouble. It was a beautiful day out and there were easy 40 dogs there. We saw one or two piles/messes that hadn't been picked up but for the most part people cleaned up after themselves. It was a nice day for all! We plan to return this weekend!
