Bring your pooch on your next trip to the beach.

There's plenty of room at the beach for your best friend, too! Especially if you stay in one of our Fort Morgan dog-friendly houses.

Leashed pups are welcome to explore the white-sand beaches of Fort Morgan with their owners. Dogs are also welcomed in several dog parks on Pleasure Island, including one in Gulf Shores, located at 308 Clubhouse Drive.

Unleash your dog and relax when you're inside the fence-protected park. Or, throw a Frisbee or ball or just let him run around with other dogs visiting that day. There's plenty of shade for you and the other pet parents.

Be sure to take your dog to the Dog Pond at Gulf State Park.

There, he can frolick in the water, rest on the grassy beach area and play with other canine friends.

The dog park is located at Lake Shelby near the Gulf State Park Adventure and Welcome Center. Turn left when you enter the parking lot and the dog park is at the end of the parking lot/road.

Another option for your pup to play is the "Unleashed" dog park in Orange Beach, located next door to Sportsman Marina on Canal Road.

Plenty of shade and plenty of room to run and play make Unleashed a locals' favorite.

Dogs are also welcomed on leashes on the Backcountry Trail system. Next time you come to the beach, reserve a dog-friendly beach house and be sure to bring your pup!
