I live near a river, and there's a nice little beach area and picnic spot where we go. It's great because my dog gets to see other people and loose dogs, but he's more interested in me (and the frisbee) so it helps to reinforce teaching him not to harass others. Our AmBull is the opposite, since she can't swim and thinks chasing toys is a waste of time. If someone is there that doesn't like dogs (hardly ever happens though) then she's got to be leashed, because she'll keep pestering for attention otherwise.
