violation of County Code for dogs to be on the beach
BREVARD COUNTY • SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA – The Satellite Beach Police Department says they have been receiving multiple complaints of dogs on the beach, recently.
“Unfortunately, these complaints also highlight the dog owner’s lack of responsibility while having their dogs on the beach such as not picking up the dog’s waste, dogs off leash running up on children and being aggressive,” said a spokesperson with Satellite Beach Police Department.
Officials are reminding residents and visitors that it is a violation of County Code for dogs to be on the beach.
Satellite Beach Patrol Officers can issue tickets for violations, with the only exception given to service dogs.
Satellite Beach Police also remind residents and visitors to not identify your dog as a service dog if it isn’t one. It could result in additional tickets and serious fines/court appearance.
Service dogs provide important services to their owners who are in need of these dogs. To represent a non-service dog as a service dog is a disservice to those individuals, police say.
The city has a dog park located next the library and skate park in Satellite Beach
A dog beach is available at Canova Beach Park located at Eau Gallie and A1A.
