Just about all of Delaware’s beaches are dog friendly between September 30th and May 15th, but there are only a handful of Delaware dog friendly beaches that welcome your dogs to romp the beaches all summer long!

I have great memories of bringing our late dog Grace on family camping trips to Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland. It was the best family time with our young kids at the time and to have Grace camping right there with us.

Delaware Dog Friendly Beaches in Summer

EJ’s dog Grace who was a Johnson Family Member from 1999 to 2012.

Some of our best days are beach days! And that goes for our K9 friends too!

Running, walking, chasing a ball or stick, and splashing around in the water is like heaven for our pets. I think you can actually see dogs smile while having fun with us on the beach!  And what pet owner doesn’t love to see their four-legged friends having some good ole’ fashion fun with the rest of the family?

Assateague welcomes dogs on the Maryland side all year long. There are also a handful of other right here in Delaware where your dog is welcome in June, July, August and September.

Take a look at the list of we’ve put together of Delaware Dog Friendly Beaches in Summer.
