Default Dog-friendly beach near Daytona/New Smyrna

Hey guys:
My wife and are looking to move south from Kentucky in a year or two and I was wondering if there are any dog-friendly beaches near Daytona. We have a lovable black lab that LOVES to swim and fetch... since she loves the lake, I know she'll love the ocean. Any suggestions?

OK, thanks for the info, but... been there, tried that, didn't get any "for sure" results. I find this forum and a few other sites, none of which EXACTLY answer my question. For example, I can find lots of hotels and dog parks, and even some beaches where its OK.. but I'm looking for somewhere I can take my lab off-leash at the beach so she can swim and fetch. I was hoping (per my post in a similiar thread) that some locals might could point me to a remote/secluded area where, if not necessarily "legal," it would be permitted. Thanks again!

Anybody? While not a deciding factor, this IS very important for my consideration.

I live here, but we have never considered taking our dog to the beach. I honestly right off the top of my head cannot think of anywhere in our area where it is legal to allow your dog to run around unleashed. I asked DH and he couldn't think of any either. We could be wrong, but we just don't know of anywhere you can do that around here.

I to have a big lab that loves the water......so you might want to try these sites www.petfriendly.com www.bigdogswelcome.com www.petsonthego.com

One of these sites has a beach friendly site that you can research away...I would not let my dog swim in any of the fresh water lakes...

Thanks for the help, guys... that's a bit depressing to me. I knew we wouldn't be taking her right into an "action-packed" area with lots of people, concessions, etc... But I was sure hoping there would be somewhere where I could take her out to let her play. She just LOVES to swim and fetch (what lab doesn't?) and I know she's love the beach and ocean. Maybe we'll figure something/somewhere out.

I read on one of those sites, rusty, that a lot of people have seen dogs (labs, actually) running unleashed in the surf at the lighthouse park. I know its not legal... but maybe its tolerated? I was hoping this might be the case at Smyrna dunes (across the inlet), since it seems a bit more remote, but that doesn't seem to be the case. What about somewhere down along the Canaveral seashore? Any remote places there that I may be able to take her? I don't care to drive a little ways... she's great in the car (as long as the windows are down)!

I used to live in New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater area. I did alot of fishing in the intercoastal waterway,(the river). There were many times I saw a dog frolicking along the bank "unleashed" playing in and out of the water. Don't know if legal or illegal? I'm sure there are people in some of those places fishing without a license. But yet they are there. Don't know if it was private property or what? Just looked like the dogs were having a good time. How much is the fine if caught? Might be trivial considering the benefit to your dog. Might try to get in touch of a game warden and see what he says. Just a few thoughts, I hope it helps in some way.

Default dog beach

my friend's daughter takes her mixed breed dog up toward Flagler Beach from Ormond Beach, where they live. She refers to it as "the dog beach". I'll try to find out where it is....
