The best spots for your dog to get wet
Sydney is famous for its many beautiful beaches. When summer arrives and the temperatures start to head north, we're lucky enough to be able to head to the beach to cool off.

But the same can't always be said for our four-legged friends. Despite the huge number of dogs in Sydney, opportunities for them to frolic in the water are few and far between.
Sydney's Best Dog-friendly Beaches

There are, however, a handful of select swimming spots where your pooch can get wet. Here are three of the best.

Rowland Reserve, Bayview
This fantastic dog-friendly reserve got a mention in my review of Sydney's best off-leash dog parks, and there's no way I could leave it off this list either. This place always seems to be busy, so if your dog likes socialising with other pooches Rowland Reserve is perfect.

There's plenty of water, sand and grassy areas for even the most energetic pooch to explore and he's sure to make a host of new friends. You might too, as you'll usually find heaps of other like-minded dog owners to strike up a conversation with.

One-hour free parking is just the icing on the cake.

Even if you live a little way away from the northern beaches, it's still worth the extra drive to give your dog a great day out. Give him an hour or two here and he'll be in doggy heaven.

Sirius Cove, Mosman
For the pampered pooches of the north shore, this harbourside gem is the place to go to get wet. It's often well populated by playful pooches, who can get their paws wet or just race around and go nuts on the sand.

The beach backs onto a peaceful reserve which also features barbecues, play equipment and the always-handy poo bins and bags. And with some impressive city views to admire, owners can sit back and take in the scenery while their four-legged friends go exploring.

Unleashed dogs are permitted on the beach and in the water all day Monday to Friday, and prior to 9am and after 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.

Silver Beach, Kurnell
Located on the Kurnell peninsula fronting Botany Bay, Silver Beach boasts one dog off-leash section between the third and fourth groynes (jetties) from the western end.

Conditions are nice and calm, so your pooch can frolic in the water to his heart's content. Bins and toilet facilities are also available nearby to make this beach as practical as possible.

So if you feel like spoiling your pooch with a day out at the beach, check out one of these dog-friendly gems.
