Laguna Canyon Dog Park 
About 2 miles south of the 405 on Laguna Canyon Road, on the east side of the road. Coming from the 405, it is on the left side of the road, just past the Animal Shelter. A fairly large park, with a 2-gate entry system. Poop bags and a watering station are available. Benches and a picnic table. You may want to bring a folding chair for this one, however. Etiquette for entering and leaving: Wait until the entry pen is empty. Take your dog in, close the gate behind you, take the dog off the leash. Open the inside gate and let your dog run into the park. This avoids "leash aggression". A dog on a leash feels threatened and may lash out at the other dogs coming to greet him. When exiting, wait until the exit pen is empty. Call your dog into it, close the inside gate, then put your dog's leash on. Then exit the pen. The two gates should never be open at the same time! Used properly, this system is awesome.  Laguna Beach
