    great beach

    If your not staying in Dewey good luck finding a parking spot! Other than that it's a great beach for dogs!

    Fantasticly Dog Friendly

    This is a great dog friendly beach!! And well behaved dogs are allowed to be off their leash :) We went early in the morning with our two dogs (one of which can be a little bit of a jerk around other pups. Not aggressive just VERY vocal) all other people were very understanding. We are from out of town so we didnt know that you had to purchase a permit to bring your dogs on the beach however an attendant politely told us where we could find one and how much they cost for next time. We will definitely be taking our pups here again during our next vacation!

    Dog Friendly early morning and evenings

    Dewey Beach is quite dog friendly, so long as you stick the posted hours (before 9:30 am and after 5:30 pm) - there's seldom any real sun bathers to worry, as it's mostly folks with dogs on their strolls and the occasional early morning surf fisherman.

    dog friendly

    I love taking my dog here. But the risk of losing the benefits of a no leash friendly worries me since there are not many towns near-by with such benefit. The problem is dumb humans once again, if you can't control your dog with voice commands, put a leash on!!! Those of us who spend hours training our dog to be well behaved in public risk losing a great benefit because of inconsiderate dumb people. I hope Dewey continues to be dog friendly, we really enjoy making the trip there for this reason alone!

    Tide is changing

    Too many dogs off lead are causing the town to seriously consider leash laws. There are so many sunbathers on the beach that ia leash is required. The police will prosecute if your dog interferes with sunbathers, beware, this town is not as dog friendly as they say, most residents and beachgoers resent dogs on the sand.

    Dog Beach

    Dog friendly before and after lifeguard hours in the summer. Off leash and loving it. Four bones only since permit parking is dominant by the beach. Be aware or $35 fine. Worth it since pooch loved her beach frolic.
