San Bruno Beach is between Progresso and Telchac Puerto. It’s probably my favourite beach so far. It’s quiet and there aren’t a lot of dogs that feel threatened with me around, so I feel very safe there. The water is calm and at low tide the beach is very wide.
Sometimes at low tide you can see coral and my humans like to pick up sea shells that they find. The water seems warm enough for humans to enjoy swimming and I like to come in with them.
Sir Rodders’ Top Tips for Beach Trips
- Your humans should always have have fresh cool water you and a bowl to drink from. We can get dehydrated very quickly on the beach.
- Your humans should always have you on the leash unless you are sure that there is no one around and you have complete control.
- Your humans should not let you swim freely unless you are very used to swimming in the sea. It does not take long for us to become disorientated, and it is very difficult for us to hear humans when they call us because of the wind and waves.
- Your humans should always pick up your poop.
- Your humans need to make sure you do not drink the sea water. This can make us very sick.
- Your humans must keep an eye on you for heat stroke and exhaustion. Sometimes dogs are so excited to be on the beach that humans will not notice we are in trouble until it is too late.
- Give us plenty of rest in the shade.
- Watch out in case we eat or roll in disgusting things. We do not mind very much, but humans do not seem to enjoy it when we have upset tummies and stink.
- Always rinse us in fresh water after a beach visit to get the salt and sand out of our fur.
