We let ours off the leash quite a bit while on the Washington/Oregon beaches. Never out of site and the german shepherd always has his training collar on. I did get a friendly reminder last year from a Tillamook county sheriff on the beach in Pacific City because that particular beach does have a leash law (however 3 miles north doesn't). "Beach" is one of the forbidden words in our house that has to be spelled out in front of the dogs because once they hear it, they're wired.

There are many beaches (east and west coast) that allow dogs to be off leash. Dog friendly beaches still require the owner to be responsible in cleaning up after their dog (something I've found some forget) and in taking responsibility for any damage they may do (another issue owners conveniently forget). If your dog is not trained (obedience training), then it can be considered a menace. Dogs that approach anyone can be terrifying to small children and some adults. This could cause harm to the dog (fear causes people to do stupid things) and if you dog reacts, then the owner is held responsible. Never say "not my dog" because things just happen.

We take a small "pound rescue" dog with us camping and boating. She loves going out with us. We always keep her on a leash except when in the boat. Most beaches here on the left coast don't allow dogs on the beaches but a few do with a 6 foot leash.

We tent and RV camp at Jalama Beach and noticed that some humans don't pick up after their dogs. One lady even cursed us after we asked her to pick up after her dog in front of our camp area. Some dogs just have untrained owners!

Once I was surf fishing and saw a large dog take off into the water. Dog had no leash and no dogs were allowed on this beach anyway. The dog was spooked by something and would not come back to shore and was tiring rather quickly in the waves. The owner had to risk his own self and swam out to get the dog!
