Oh honestly Arthur, you sound like a grumpy old man. If you want not to be around dogs, what with all the obnoxious shaking and carrying on, go to a "humans only" beach. I'm sure it's easier to find one of those than one where dogs are actually allowed off leash, at least that's the case here in California. Of course even those beaches might have children. Children also have been known to run, jump and shake. So perhaps a remote island in the South Pacific would be the safest bet.

What you're describing is the equivalent of going to a nude beach and complaining about all the nudity. Dogs generally run, jump and shake at the beach. Your chances of being victimized by any one of those activities are greatly increased if you happen to be laying on a beach where dogs and kids are allowed. That's pretty much what I'd say if you started yelling at me when my dog shakes sand on your blanket.

I hope this entire post was just in jest and the sarcasm went over my head.

Uhhh...yeah. That's exactly what I'm talking about. There are two beaches that I go to regularly, on one of them dogs aren't allowed at all, on the other they can't be off leash. Yet I have never been there when there wasn't at least one dog running around off leash while its owner pays no attention. I don't go to dog parks and dog beaches then complain about the dogs. I have yet to have a stranger's child shake off on me to get dry, take my food without asking, or crap where I will have to smell or step in it. However, you're right about one thing: if I could afford a remote island in the South Pacific, that's exactly where I'd be.

There is a movie with a couple of scenes when someone takes his dog off the leash at a leash only beach. I think it was an Adam Sandler movie (or someone like him - Vince Vaugn? Ben Stiller). But I can't quite remember.

WIth most dogs, you need to have your full attention when they are off the leash or with other dogs (includes the people ;-) ). The problems usually occur when the mind wanders and so does the dog.

Glad to here the rabies are a no go.
