Four-legged children running amok, sniffing butts, chasing balls, behaving reasonably well, and (hopefully) not chomping parts off other dogs. It's a free-for-all in reality and owners (hopefully, again) are responsible and bring aggressive behavior under control (and that is, unfortunately, a really big "hopefully" hope)....More

Del Mar dog beach is really awesome! Dogs can run free most of the year, the area has rest rooms and places to brush off your feet; restaurants are a short walk away and the dogs have a blast!
