Every dog has their day at the beach, and that includes Wyoming dogs. Sure, they may not be able to swim in the ocean, but there are plenty of ways for them to enjoy themselves at Wyoming’s many lakes and rivers. Here are some of the best dog beaches that can be found across the state of Wyoming.

When it comes to dog beaches, there’s a lot of knowledge and etiquette that needs to be followed in order not only for safety but so everyone can have a good time. Here are some tips to help you be a better beach buddy!

When going to the dog beach, your dog will naturally meet and greet other dogs, so it’s important to make sure they are comfortable around other dogs. If your dog is not great with meeting new dogs, maybe go to a different environment where they can observe dogs from a distance, or take them to a location where they can meet one dog that you know well. It’s better to wait until they can get better around new dogs before heading out to a dog beach.

Water will always be a big component when going to a beach, so make sure your dog is comfortable around water. Introduce them to water when they are younger if possible and take them on walks near lakes or rivers to get them used to the environment.

Always clean up after your dog! Make sure to always pack poop bags and a leash every time you go to a dog beach so you can pick up after your dog and keep the beach clean.

If the sand is too hot for your dog’s paws, you can bring sand booties to protect their feet. These are fairly easy to find online or at a local pet supply shop.
