The beach, known as Longport Dog Beach, is located in Somers Point right next to Ocean City, NJ. Parking is available in a smaller lot preceding the beach. Make your way through a jungle-like sandy trail and arrive in a puppy paradise swarming with happy go lucky dogs. Retrievers are usually out in the water enjoying a peaceful swim while other water loving dogs play fetch in the waves.
Harry's not a big fan of water as I tend to take all my dogs when they are way too young into my parents pool for "swimming with Mommy". In the past three dogs I've raised, the experiment has always resulted in a water loathing animal. Naturally Harry is an example of the experiment gone wrong. He didn't mind trotting through the water following me and the fishy smelling shell I was baiting him with, but he wasn't in awe of the crashing waves or even the slightest sea foam that threatened his paws.

Taking Harry to the Longport Dog Beach was one of the highlights of my summer. I love watching him have fun and of course he was super tired when we got home. If you need to fill your Labor Day weekend with one last bit of summer, the dog beach is an awesome way to do it!
