Do you want to take your dog to the beach? Here are some tips on what to bring your pup.
Bring plenty of water
Have an umbrella so your pup can get some shade
Bring a leash just in case it's not an off-leash beach
If this is the first time you take your dog to the beach or your dog is not a great swimmer, make sure they have a lifejacket.
Also, bring some toys, maybe a rubber ball and frisbee so you can play together with your pup.
Bring extra towels.
Don't forget to pack them some treats because you know they love them.
