Rosie’s Dog Beach: Off-leash in Long Beach, CA

I’ve been reluctant to add video to Dog Jaunt, because I just don’t like video clips. When we visited Rosie’s Dog Beach, however, I changed my tune. There are times, I now realize, when video does such a good job of showing what a place is like that it would be silly not to use it. So here you have Dog Jaunt’s first-ever video — please let me know what you think!

Thank you to my excellent, wonderful husband for the filming, the editing, and in fact almost everything you’re about to see and hear. Yes, honey, you can go buy a better video camera.

    That’s a great video! We love it. Very informative and professional!

    Now, if only we can find an easy way to get sand off of wet beach-paws :o)

    Thank you so much! It was fun to be there — and boy, was it fun to be wearing a light top and sandals. Seattle’s had a much milder winter than the rest of the country, but it’s still been winter.

    Thanks for this info. What was your impression of the weather back in early March? I live in Alaska and I am looking for a winter escape around Feb/Mar.

  • Mary-Alice

    Hello, Paulina! By comparison with Seattle, it was warm — but I’d bring a light sweater/windbreaker with you. Every time I’ve failed to bring one at that time of year, I’ve regretted it. Sunny, though, and blue skies — a lovely break.
