Pensacola Beach to become dog friendly?

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

What say you?

Dogs are not welcome on Pensacola Beach.

In fact, everywhere dog owners go they are met with “no animals” signs.

Pensacola resident Karen Sindel wants Pensacola Beach to join some 300 other dog-friendly beaches across the country.

She plans to present a proposal to the Santa Rosa Island Authority board on Wednesday for limited dog access to several areas of the beach. It will be the first public meeting on the proposal, and Sindel said she hopes dog owners will turn out in support of it.

What I read about the proposal, it was a well thought-out proposal. Limited times, not during turtle nesting season, and, to this observer, in an area that isn't near the tourist-based beach core. (I'm not a Pensacola Beach expert, so it may actually be in a popular area, but it seemed to me that it was way East of the beach core.)

There is no more fun than watching your dogs frolic free and carefree in water. We have three miles of shoreline on a series of islands connected by concrete causeways and as I weaken the German Shepard and Malmute/lab love our walks which include An area where they run the shoreline and then jump in the water.....they play and play......one is thirteen years old and the other 10 and have been doing this on and off for 9 years. People cannot believe that the 13 year old is not a puppy. Swimming and running on a beach is simply paradise for a dog......but the problem is that I am in an isolated paradise without other human beings.....when I go to the beach I do not want to put shoes on.....and I do not want to step in poop. I have always liked the ban on the gulf side, but have always wondered why a section of the national park on the intercoastal could not be made dog friendly....but that will never happen, but on PB.....nope......I think ban is good unless you can find an isolated area where people are not walking barefoot.

Obviously you know nothing about dog handlers. No good dog handlers will leave a pile of poo anywhere where you can find it.

Pet owners that frequent dog parks and areas where dogs are allowed generally bring supplies with them to clean behind their animal or they use the on site supplies. sure you will have a few show up that are not familiar with the rules but generally droppings are not a problem. feel free to visit any dog park around here and see for yourself.

Not at the park off East Fence Road... Dickson Park. Every time I go there, there is poop aplenty. I pick up my pet's poop, but have to be careful there when I walk, if you know what I mean...

I don't have a dog and all I have to do is look on my front lawn.. True,most of the ones walking their dog clean up any mess, but what about the ones that somebody lets out the front door for a few minutes and leaves them out for an hour?? I ALWAYS carried a few Wal Mart plastic bags or the plastic bag the PNJ puts around the paper.. I just stick my hand in the bag, pick up the crap, then turn the bag inside out.. Hands stay clean and the poop is inside the bag.. LOL
