|Oregon Coast Notes|
Most Oregon Beaches allow dogs if they are on a 6 foot or shorter leash and a few allow dogs without leashes.
Check the beach laws where you are, you will find signs at most beach entrances. Be sure to clean up after your pet and keep our beaches dog friendly.
Oregon State Parks and Beaches
On Beaches outside of the boundaries of an Oregon state park, Ocean Shore rules apply. Ocean Shore OAR 736-21-0070 states "the owner of any dog, cat, or other animal brought into or kept in the ocean shore recreation area shall be responsible for the animal's behavior and physical control while in the ocean shore recreation area." Leashes are not specifically required, but physical control must be maintained.
Where beaches have been designated Western Snowy Plover nesting sites or wildlife habitat areas, all beach pedestrians must stay on the wet sand and all pets must remain on a six foot leash and kept under physical control. Pet control in wildlife habitat areas apply to both Oregon State Park and Ocean Shore areas. Designated areas are well signed to warn beach visitors of wildlife habitat areas.
