With the world's best climate, endless stretches of seashore and blooming beauty spots nestled along our babbling brooks, dog owners can always enjoy a run along Brisbane's sandy beaches. Grab a tennis ball and a chew toy for a game of fetch beside the gently lapping waves of the warm Pacific Ocean. Canines love being let off the leash to leave long trails of paw-prints on white sands, panting with glee on our warm Brissie day.

As you visit these beaches and parks, look out for signs listing the restrictions for dog owners, especially if dogs are only permitted during certain hours or if they must be on a lead. Deception Bay, despite the sinister-sounding name, is our favourite place for a Sunday drive and off-leash canine adventures. Stretching to the horizon, the still waters at Moreton Bay are perfect for shallow swims or long walks.

Generally, these tips will ensure you and your dog stay safe and have fun:
be careful to control your pet, it should follow your commands
keep your dog on a leash if it's very excited and likely to spook walkers, cyclists and other dogs
if you can't see a sign, you should keep the leash on
carry spare plastic bags in case your dog needs a toilet stop
have you registered your pet with your local council?
no-one likes needles but your pet should be vaccinated and wormed
