Popular private dog beaches near Port Orchard, Washington

Pig Beach (near Port Ludlow)

A .63 acre dog sanctuary for you and your pup. The yard is well maintained with dog friendly grass and has incredible views of the Hood Canal and Puget Sound. If you're interested, there is private beach access for you and your pup to explore miles of beach (public but almost always empty). There are numerous dog toys available as well. Regarding the beach, there are approximately 50 steps which you will need to climb up and down to access the beach so please wear proper footwear. As this is on the Hood Canal and not a lake or a pond, tides impact the size of the beach. If you are hoping to walk endless miles of beach, the tide will need to be at 2ft or below. Anything under 4ft will give you a massive area (probably 1/2 mile or more) and almost guaranteed private area as only people with stairs can access the beach at this tide level. Though the beach is open at any point, I think the maximum height you would probably want to go is about 6.5ft. This still gives you and your dog a decent sized area to play in (approximately 500ft by 30ft or 1/2 acre). Photos 16 and 17 show the beach at 6.25ft with a very large sandy area for you and your pup to play in. Anything above 6.5 ft is not recommended as the beach just gets thinner and thinner, but you're able to try if you want. (no refunds given if you don't like what you find). You are responsible for checking out the tides before you go. Legally, I can't recommend any specific source for you to use, but you might find good information Googling "tide chart port ludlow". Regarding ADA Accessibility, my property is on a gently sloping hill. To access it, there are 2 very wide concrete steps to get to the grass. This would be doable for someone on crutches and probably ok for a regular wheelchair if you had a second person to help lower you to each step and pull you up. It's definitely not accessible to a motorized wheelchair. Sorry.

A little smaller than what I was thinking. I have 3 larger dogs and still was able to run around. The host had clear directions in ad and in message to me. Allowed me to decide on meeting one another. Had toys, clean water, way to clean the paws, secure fencing, trash to put poop bags.

Cannot say enough great things about this spot and the hosts! We were able to extend or stay today last minute to get out some extra zoomies and we couldn't be happier (or more tuckered out!) thanks to the gracious hosts at this gem!

This Sniffspot is very clean and secure. There are toys available, and a fairly big inside space if it’s raining. The outside space is not big, but big enough to throw balls. Bruce was excellent at communicating, and since I have a nervous dog, assured me his dogs would be totally out of sight and sound.

Perfect space to let my dogs run and get some energy out! Bruce is easy to communicate with and helpful. The pups love the open space and the toys. Nice extra touches with water, bags and cleaner available. We will definitely be back!

First time using Sniffspot and had a wonderful experience! The play areas were clean and we appreciated the toys, fresh water, and towels. Our dogs had a great time!

Always the highlight of our week! Today we had so much fun pouncing and running, happily panting all the way home! Beautiful fall decorations and tree leaves made today's crisp morning fun even better!

FAQ about our Port Orchard dog beaches

Are dog beaches safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks.

How do I know if a dog beach works for my dog?
Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing and distractions, to find a dog park that works for your furry friends. If your dog doesn't respond to owner commands, you can visit one of our enclosed dog park areas. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our dog beach sites where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can see any park amenities provided, including a park bench, water for dogs or water features such as kiddie pool or water hose. If your dog loves water, you can go to a park with water features, but if they don't love water, you can avoid them. We also recommend reading reviews to check for park maintenance issues and reaching out to the host with any questions. And lastly, of course, check park hours. Many of our parks are open from dawn until dusk.

Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot park at the same time as me?

So when you book a Sniffspot park you have the entire place to yourself and your dog-owning friends if you invite them. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings so you will not run into other park patrons when coming or leaving.
