Dogs on a leash are allowed on the Mobile bay side beach from the old Fort Morgan Pier all the way to the Old Fisherman's Wharf.Beyond the Old Fisherman's Wharf is a Federal Wildlife area where dogs are not permitted.
Before you take your dog to the beach please keep in mind the following: Know which beaches are dog-friendly Before you visit a beach learn the rules for bringing a pet with you.
Most dog-friendly beaches require dogs to remain on leash, sometimes even in the water.
Dogs on a leash are allowed on the public beach, except for the West End Beach where pets are prohibited due to the presence of critical bird nesting habitats.
The public beach is located next to Dauphin Island Elementary School and is the largest area on Dauphin Island set aside for dogs and their owners.
While you ensure your skin doesnt get sun burnt, remember your pet.
Dogs can burn too, especially if they have light skin and fur or short hair. Take care of his/her hydration the same way as yours.Make sure your dog doesnt get overly tired, and be aware that puppies and older dogs tire more easily and seem less aware of their fatigue until its too late.Stay away from strong currents and areas with underwater debris that can entangle a dog.There are at least a couple of miles of beach there, and with Sand Island now connected to Dauphin Island, there is more area of undeveloped beach jutting out into the Gulf on that barrier island.Though dogs are allowed at Dauphin Island's primary public beach and at the Dauphin Island Campground, dogs are not allowed at the West End Beach Park on the Island's extreme west end.Finally, some beaches are dedicated dog beaches where dogs are allowed off-leash.
