While DogTrekker regularly updates off-leash rules, it is important to check to be sure that this area still allows voice control prior to removing your dog’s leash.

Dillion Beach is full of activity for the whole family. You can go swimming, surfing, sea kayaking, windsurfing, boogie boarding, hiking, cycling, lounging, boating, fishing, and search the tide pools!

There are no leash laws and they welcome dogs if they are friendly and get along with other dogs and people. Please help to keep the beach clean by picking up after your dogs. While the beach is public, the development surrounding it is private.

There is a fee to park at Dillon Beach, check the website for current rates and hours.

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints

For water-loving canines, nothing beats fetching a bright yellow tennis ball from the surf and romping full speed ahead on a sandy beach. But while there’s plenty of sand to share with your leashed pup along California’s 840 miles of coastline, you should know before you go where dogs are and aren’t allowed to get their ya-yas out. Here are a few of our favorite off-leash strands: more »
Pee Wee in Marin
Pee-wee at Muir Beach
Marin County is spring-loaded with dog-friendly places, but we at DogTrekker have some tail-wagger favorites. The good news in the beach department: after months of parking-lot restoration work, beautiful Muir Beach is due to open again to visitors in late November. Dogs under voice control are still allowed to be off-leash here, but those privileges soon may be reduced, restricted or eliminated under terms of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s new dog management plan. Rules, if adopted, wouldn’t go into effect until 2015, so enjoy it while you can. more »
