The town of Jupiter is home to some of the best dog-friendly beaches on the East Coast.

Jupiter’s dog-friendly beach areas run along 2.5 mile stretch of beach from beach marker #25 at Marcinski Road going north to beach marker #59 on the south end of Carlin Park. You are welcome to bring your dog and let him or her play off the leash.

Because Jupiter is of the few places where you are allowed to bring your dog to the beach, and because that’s a privileged resident don’t want to lose, the Friends of Jupiter organization has put together the following common-sense rules to keep all beach-goers, both dog and human, happy.  

Dog Beach Rules

  • Only behaved, obedient, well-socialized dogs (and people) should be brought to the beach.  Since dogs are not required to be on-leash in these areas, only non-aggressive dogs that respond to voice commands from their owners are allowed on the beach.

  • Be a responsible dog owner.  Supervise your dog at all times, and do not go beyond the boundaries of the dog-friendly beach areas.

  • Obey the Town’s leash laws.  Dogs should be leashed while walking from the car to the beach.  It is also wise to keep dogs on-leash around small children.   

  • Dog owners should be conscientious of others at the beach.  While the dog-friendly areas play host to our furry friends, the beach is open to all people, and owners should be courteous to those who may not want to interact with dogs.

  • Leave no trace.  Friends of Jupiter Beach provides dog waste bags at every crossover along the dog-friendly beach areas to ensure that our beaches are kept clean.  Please do your part to maintain the cleanliness of the beach for everyone.

Dog Beach Tips

  • Give your dog a shady spot and plenty of freshwaters. Don't let your dog drink seawater.

  • Dogs sunburn, especially those with short hair, white fur, and pink skin. Limit your dog's exposure and apply sunblock to his ears and nose 30 minutes before going outside.

  • Avoid prolonged exposure to hot asphalt or sand, which can burn a dog's paws.

  • Dogs are easy targets for sea lice and jellyfish. Check for daily water conditions.

  • Keep an eye on your dog. Running on the sand is strenuous exercise. A dog that is out of shape can easily pull a tendon or ligament.

  • Salt and other minerals in ocean water can damage your dog's coat, so rinse him off at the end of the day.

  • Most dogs enjoy swimming, but some can't swim. Others hate the water. Know your dog's preferences and skills before trying to make him swim.

  • If you're swimming with your dog for the first time, start in shallow water and coax him in by calling his name. Encourage him with toys and treats. Or let him follow another experienced dog he is friendly with.

  • Never throw a dog into the water.

  • If your dog begins to paddle with his front legs, lift his hind legs and help him float. He should quickly catch on and keep his back end up.

  • Don't let your dog overdo it. Swimming is very hard work and he may tire quickly.

  • At the ocean, be careful of strong tides and know if rip currents have been reported. Never leave your dog unattended in water.
