Centennial beach is not a place for dogs. Dogs are not allowed in the water area, and must be on a leash. The only beaches that allow dogs are those of public beaches (beaches beside the ocean or bay), and they must be on a leash while swimming if they are in the ocean/bay areas. Please inform others of this rule as well. This is to ensure that dogs do not jump into the water area, swim around and hurt someone (or themselves). The only people who can swim with their dog are ones who have permits for Service Dogs that are specially trained to help them perform tasks for them (examples: guide dogs, hearing dogs). In order to find out more about Service Dogs and what they can do, please visit: http://www.servicedogs.ca/
