HeartGuard is important and expensive here you might stock up on it.

Heart Guard and an anti flea medication - I use Frontline and Ovitrol - are must haves and together are readily available and are actually one of the things that are cheaper here than in the US. Dog needs a Heart Worm test before you start the medicine as it can kill the Dog if it already unknowingly has Heart Worm.

Edit. I see Elbert thinks it's more expensive here. I looked on two trips to Miami and Houston and found the opposite but it could be location. Ovitrol is US$32 for 16Oz, From memory Heart Guard (50ld Dog) here is US$6 per tablet $25 per pack of 6 and Frontline is $25 - 30 for three

Ticks are rampant in our neck of the woods (north). ProMeris is the best we have found. It's available here sometimes, but not all times.

Larry, you should also familiarize yourself with the symptoms of tick fever. If you don't notice the symptoms and get treatment (a simple antibiotic), it can do considerable damage to your dog and/or be fatal. Many newcomers have never heard of tick fever but it is fairly common around here.

Back to the dogs on the beach...People seem to respect them...(except for one lady last year in the Ruby's area, and you know who you are, boo!!!!) and I have never stepped in any dog poo so I think most everyone picks up after their dogs...
