The dog beaches I know about in the LA area are:

Leo Carillo
Long Beach
Huntington Beach

Any others I'm missing? Any "unofficial" dog beaches -- i.e., dogs aren't technically allowed, but they're tolerated anyway?

Wow! You must be reading my mind! I was thinking just last night of posting an almost identical topic, but I was too lazy to turn my computer back on.

I'm in the San Fernando Valley and I wonder what my best choices are for taking my dog to the beach and letting him walk at the edge of the surf. I don't mind keeping him on leash.

Going to Long Beach or Huntington Beach is too far for me. Leo Carillo might work. Are there any other beaches? (Starting at Santa Monica and going north, and it's okay to include Ventura County.)

I kind of miss seeing dogs running at the beach but hardly any LA beaches allow it anymore.

Are they allowed on leashes at all beaches?

No, even on leash they're forbidden at almost every beach. Even at Leo Carillo you have to keep them on leash.

In Ventura dogs are not allowed on any state beaches and they are pretty good at enforcing this. Ventura city beaches have signs about keeping dogs on a leash but they are very lax about it and very much tolerated. Dogs really have fun jumping in the water and running along the beach. If you stay away from the State Beaches your cool. This may help: www.fun-in-ventura.com/best-california-beaches (broken link).

At the risk of sounding like a jerk, I don't think ANY public beach should allow ANY dogs. There are simply too many irresponsible dog owners....who think someone else should clean up after their dog.

There should be a few beaches where somebody can take their dog. I'll agree that most beaches (most by far) should prohibit dogs whether or not they are on leashes.

There's only two legal dog beaches in the L.A. area. They're in Long Beach and Huntington Beach.

If you go down to San Diego, you'll find four dog beaches, and I'd say all of them are more pleasant than the L.A. options (as usual).
