It’s another hot (and smoky) day in LA. Contemplating taking Eli to dog beach…although it’s an hour drive for us…usually worth it.

For any dog owners in SoCal, I highly recommend checking out Huntington Dog Beach (HDB).

About Huntington dog beach

Huntington Beach, CA, with a population of 200,000 is located 37 miles south of Los Angeles and 89 miles north of San Diego.
HBD is on Pacific Coast Highway between 21st St. and Seapoint St. in Huntington Beach and offers an amazing mile of beaches where dogs can run off-leash. Cliffs also protect against dogs running up and out on PCH, which is a huge plus.

HDB is a non-profit organization founded in 1997; its mission is to protect and preserve access to the beach for dogs and their people, as well as to promote responsible dog ownership in order to make our canine companions welcome members of society. They have a 5-member Board of Directors which serves on a voluntary basis (no monetary compensation). They do rely entirely on private donations to keep operating. You can help support HBD here: DONATE

I wish LA County beaches allowed dogs. I know a small part of Malibu does, but LA really needs an official dog beach like Huntington. Maybe one day.
