Delaware Beaches Pet-Friendly Destinations

Dog friendly Delaware beachesUp and down the Delaware coast, pets are a welcome and familiar part of the summer scene. Strolling through town, dog-walkers frequently will find a bowl of water placed outside shops for thirsty pooches, and on the beaches themselves, designated areas offer dogs the thrill of a splash in the surf.

Here’s a look at the Top Pet-Friendly Destinations at the Delaware Beaches:

  • Lazy L at Willow Creek B&B (16061 Willow Creek Rd, Lewes). This self-proclaimed “pet-friendliest” B&B features a fenced-in area for off-leash play, doggy daycare services and directions to nearby pet-friendly beaches. Fans also rave about the dog-friendly vibe at the Hotel Rodney (142 Second Street, Lewes) and The Breakers Hotel & Suites (105 Second St., Rehoboth Beach).

  • Shopping in Delaware is a tax-free delight, and that applies to pets as well. Check out the array of animal-accessory boutiques, including Critter Beach (156 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach); Yuppy Puppy (123 Garfield Parkway, Bethany Beach); P.U.P.S. of Lewes (117 2nd St., Lewes); and DJ’s Pet Depot (17644 Coastal Hwy, Lewes).

  • Pet friendly delaware beachesSeashore parks are great places for pets to stretch out and get some exercise (the trails at Cape Henlopen State Park are a favorite for pet owners), but be mindful of the regulations. Many limit pets during height of season, but others are open to leashed pets year-round. Download the Delaware State Park pet map for more information: www.destateparks.com/downloads/maps/pets.pdf

  • The Cape May-Lewes Ferry gives you and your furry companion a chance to cool off amid bay breezes. Pets welcome on all exterior decks, but must remain leashed and under control.
