Are emotional support dogs allowed on the boardwalk and beach?Submitted by Debbie S, Emmitsburg MD on August 5, 2019
Unless an emotional support dog is an ADA-approved service animal, and very few emotional supports dogs are, it is not allowed on the OC boardwalk or beach until 1 October.
Emotional support animals are allowed on the beach and boardwalk from October 1st through April 30th. Emotional support animals are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk from May 1st through September 30th. Service animals are allowed on the beach or boardwalk at any time.
