Where can I take my dog to swim? Which beaches allow to bring along dogs


Since summer is coming up also me and my pet are new in Sz, shekou, we would like to go to the beach together. 

Does anyone know which beaches allow dogs? Better less crowded as possible (but we are in China, so at least not millions of people on beach).

I read there are dameisha, xichong and dongchong beaches. Which one is good? Or maybe someone knows better beach than those)

And does anyone know how to go to the beaches from Shekou?


For dogs owners :

Let's meet and be friends :) or maybe we can organize a trip to beach together,  take our furry friends to swim. 

Need dog advice asap!

Hello all! I've been offered a job in Shenzhen and have 48 hours to decide. My question is, how hard is it to bring dogs into Shenzen from the US? I've been told that Shenzen doesn't quarantine. Also, she's a mix but has some obvious pibull in her. Are people in Shenzen welcoming to bigger dogs? Will she even be allowed in the country being a pitbull mix? Am I likely to find an apartment that will allow me to have her? Any adivice I can get asap would be greatly appreciated!

Where is the best place to buy a dog in Shenzhen?

Dog sitter wanted from mid June to early September - Shenzhen.

Hi there,


I am currently living and working in Wuhan but am moving to Shenzhen at the beginning of September 2012. I am returning home to England for 2 1/2 months over the summer and I am looking for someone to take care of my 4 month old chocolate labrador/retreiver cross Saxon.


I have plenty of pics available, he is a friendly and playful dog with a lovely temperament and is already well house-trained and understands several commands. I am reluctant to put him into kennels for such a long time and would prefer him to live short-term (between 10 - 12 weeks) with someone at home. I am willing to pay 1500 RMB towards his upkeep with the promise that he will be well looked after whilst I am away.

Looking for a small Dog

I am looking for a small dog for my family.  We recently lost our dog to Parvo and my girls would like to have a dog to love on.  The dog has to be less than 27 cm tall and could be of any breed, so long as the kids deem it cute :0)  There are lots of very expensive dogs out there, but I know that there may be a free or cheap dog that needs a good home.
