A few questions

We will be in Seaside for 1 week at beginning of July.

A few questions for the locals:

1. Are there any off-leash areas for our dog?

2. How strict are the lease laws? i.e. Is it frowned upon to have a well-behaved dog off leash on beaches/parks designated as on-leash?

3. Where would be the best place to buy groceries? We will be driving from the north through Astoria. Would it be better for us to buy groceries in Astoria?

dont know what the actual law is but you will always see dogs off leash on the beach and in the water --- just make sure you pick up after your pet

there is ample shopping in seaside including a safeway on 101 before you get to the town turnoff

If coming from Astoria, I would personally buy my groceries either at Fred Meyer in Warrenton or Costco. I find Safeway to be a bit more expensive.

There is a new Costco in Warrenton, it's very nice! Also, the Safeway in Seaside has recently been redone and is a very nice place to shop for groceries. When you are there and just need a couple of items, the 12th Street Market also has been remodeled and now has a nice deli, it is right by the 12th Street Bridge and the Necanicum River. Have fun in Seaside! :)

When we take our dog, we keep her on a leash, but then she has a mind of her own and may or may not "come". she is overly friendly. She is now 4 and beginning to mind better, so we may let her loose on beach on a trial next time we go. She is 16 pounds.

Noy sure what parks you mean, but in State Park cgs you need to keep dog on leash

That Safeway fine place to get things you did not bring. I assume you will bring some staples from Vancouver.

Within State Park boundaries there is a 6' leash requirement. Some cities also have a leash requirement on the beach within city limits. Other than that, Oregon as a whole does not have a "leash law", and out of a city area it's pretty easy to find a stretch of beach without many people around to let them run.

With large dogs, just use courtesy when they're off leash since some folks (and some small dogs) aren't comfortable with a big dog gamboling around them. Small dogs get more leniency since they're, well, small ;-)

It's not too unusual to see people with dogs off leash in some towns; as long as they stick right by their owners, nobody seems to mind.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the need for strict leash control over the kids driving the Seaside streets.

Oh, I guess I did that on occasion back in the day. :)

As far as dogs on Oregon Beaches, they must be under control at all times. This CAN mean voice control if the pet responds at all times, otherwise leashes are required. The exception to this is on beaches that front state parks, where the 6' leash law within the park is extended to the beach.
