4 Beaches That Are Heaven For Dogs

4 Beaches That Are Heaven For Dogs

The sun is setting way before the time limit, the cold seeps in, soaking up all the brightness, and we all tend to want to hibernate like a bear.

It’s time for a vacation; however, for us pet owners it’s hard for our furry friends to tag along to our desired destinations. As a contrast to a cold winter, many of us might prefer a warm summer, where we get to re-live the feeling of sinking our toes in the sand.

Since many beaches aren’t pet-friendly, how do you enjoy your favorite getaway this winter? Taking that into consideration, I have put together a list of beaches where your pet can run around in the sand while you’re taking a long refreshing walk.

    1. Southport, Australia (The Spit)

    Southport beach, commonly known as The Spit, is a common destination for all dog lovers out there. In the inhabited coast of Australia, it’s a place where both canines and humans bond.

    Since it’s the start of a sweltering summer in Australia this winter, the beach is once again open for all the passionate dog lovers. The waters are calm and exciting for both dogs and humans, so it’s the best of both worlds.

    If you’re looking for an escape with your furry friend then this would a place to be considered.

      2. Huntington Dog Beach, California

      California is a place where the burning sun and the sandy beaches are trademark. From the start of Beverly Hills 90210, to the last episodes of Baywatch, the beach culture never seemed to let us down. Their sunny and “take it easy” lifestyle has always impressed the world, making it one of the most visited destinations in the United States.

      Californians have also portrayed themselves as enthusiastic dog lovers. Huntington Dog Beach is available for all dog lovers looking to travel and enjoy a perfect summer. The low and calm tide of the beach allows your dog to waddle away while you enjoy getting a perfect tan.

      If you prefer active sports, you can visit a number of beaches not too far from the dog beach that offer high tides and an opportunity to ski and surf. If you’re looking to escape this winter, California will definitely meet your expectations.

        3. Chesil Beach, Dorset, UK

        Chesil Beach is located in Dorset, a small county located in the Southwest of England that contains a variety of wonderful beaches. Dorset is rural and quiet, a haven for nature and fresh air.

        Although cold at this time of year, winter is still a great time to visit. The 18-mile stretch of Chesil Beach is perfect for wintry walks with the dog and, when you’re ready to warm up beside a roaring fire, head to one of the local inns, many of which are also pet-friendly.

        A total of 8 miles of the beach is separated from the mainland by a saline lagoon, known as the Fleet, which provides a rich environment for a whole range of wildlife. Chesil Beach is also known to be a fantastic spot for fishing and, in warmer months, an array of exhilarating water sports.

        If you’re planning for a traditional English experience, then this is definitely the go-to location for a wonderful, festive celebration packed with rustic charm; plus, a dog friendly beach is enough to make your furry friend’s season too!

          4. Los Cabos, Mexico

          If you’ve watched the movie Hotel for Dogs, you probably wish that it existed somewhere on this planet. Like Hogwarts, you might think it’s just a fairy tale that never comes true. Well, in Los Cabos, Mexico you might find what you’re looking for.

          A dog paradise, Los Cabos is suited for dogs and owners to travel and enjoy their vacation in style. Most of the resorts are catered for dogs, equipped with dog spas and offering various therapies; you’ll be able to escape your furry friend if you want, and enjoy Mexico on your own.

          Your pet would be safe and pampered by the professionals from the resorts, which in some ways could be described as expensive dog sitting. However, at the end of the day, your pet would be relaxed and treated like a King while you do whatever you want.

          So, if you’re looking for some luxury travel, then take the chance and head to Los Cabos. And you won’t regret packing that large hat.

          So if you’re planning a winter vacation, why not make winter a great getaway for your furry companion as well? With various locations and interesting adventures, it would surely be a time to remember.

          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

          The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

          If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

          The Need for Change

          Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

          Advertising

          We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

          Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

          This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

            Signs It’s Time to Redefine

            “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

            So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

            Advertising

            In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

            “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

            The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

            When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

              Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

              And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
