Pet Policies

Ocean City Pet Policies

It’s important to note that animals are only allowed on the beach and boardwalk between October 1 and April 30, however, pets are allowed on the beach at Assateague National Park year round.

Any handler or owner of a dog must remove any waste deposited on public or private property not owned by the handler or owner in possession of said dog. Also, dogs must be kept on a leash when being walked in and around Ocean City.

There is a wonderful bay front ball park on the corner of 4th street & St Louis Ave where you can take your pet for the walk while enjoying a nice scenery. Your four legged friend will also love the Ocean City Dog playground located on 94th street and bayside open year-round.
