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.
