Longport Dog Beach, Egg Harbor Township, NJ

BringFido.com has a list of their top 10 dog friendly beaches in New Jersey.  I decided to take Hooch for a ride and try one out – so off we went to the Longport Dog Beach!

Hooch was ready to go on his first-ever solo adventure!

We found it!  This beach is located at the base of the Ocean Drive Bridge, on the Longport side, across from the fishing pier.

Walking on the path leading to the beach:

Along this path we saw the sweetest thing:  A tribute to a dog who once loved to play on this same beach.  A basket of toys were left in memory of Scruffy, so that other dogs could enjoy the beach as much as Scruffy did.

The beach was a pretty good size, with many families enjoying time with their dogs off-lead both on the beach, and in the water.

Hooch is not ready to be off-lead, so he enjoyed  running in the water on his leash.  Even though he was on-lead, he still somehow managed to steal a tennis ball from a Jack Russell Terrier!

Hooch LOVED playing in the waves:

We were both soaked, exhausted, and full of sand after this trip!

Looking forward to the next summer adventure!
