We have only been there once and we only saw big dogs. We will give it another try once we live in the area in a few weeks.

Seeing all the dogs running and splashing and just having a ball is fun for everyone. If you have a dog and visit Venice don't miss going to the paw park. The dogs know when the beach is close and just start smiling and wiggling...More

My dog had a blast running up and down the beach "chasing" waves. Most of the bigger dogs are very well behaved. The little ones tend to snap. Opposite of what one would think.... When another dog got close, I just put mine back on...More

This is a great doggie beach with good access to the water in a short walk. Owners often let their dogs run further than the dog beach off lead, not allowed and watched much more closely these days. Slightly crowded but great to watch.

My favorite beach in the world. To be there swimming with my dog was a true pleasure. If I don't take my dog when I travel to Venice, I still go there to watch the others romp. It's really entertaining.

This well-equipped dog park, with a fenced area then a walkway to the beach, is one of the main reasons we moved to this town! There are waste bags, water and a washing station inside a fenced dog park, then a walkway to the beach....More

7:00 a.m. til dusk, but I've been there at 6:30 a.m. when there's enough light with no problem. Local daily users do a great job of picking up after their dogs. Weekenders, not so much although the paw park and sidewalk to... More

The actual beach is not fenced in. After you park your car, the area that you enter is fenced in. That's where the dogs can get water and play. Then you exit another gate, and there's a couple of minutes walk along a path... More
