Here's the info on the permit for the dog park:
I found this site with a list of all the pet friendly accommodations in OC. Have a great vacation!
Dogs are allowed in OC, but they are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk from 1 May to 30
They are allowed in many of OC's parks (on leash) and there is a dog park at 94th Street. You can get more info
about it here: http://ococean.com/things-to-do/oc-local-parks-and-playgrounds/ocean-city-dog-playground
Dogs are allowed in certain areas of the beach at the Assateague National Seashore, but not Assateague State Park. Here is the info from the National Seashore website:
Pets are permitted in the Maryland portion of the National Seashore. All pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet at all times.
Pets are completely prohibited in the following areas:
- all backcountry campsites
- nature trails
- lifeguard-protected beach
- north of the State Park to the Ocean City inlet
- the entire Virginia portion of Assateague Island*
*Pets are prohibited in the entire Virginia portion of Assateague Island, even in your car. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages nearly all of the land area on the Virginia portion of Assateague Island as a National Wildlife Refuge.
There are several pet friendly properties in OC. Here are a few:
I believe the only one on the boardwalk is the Safari Hotel at 13th Street (http://www.safarimotel.net)
Clarion Fontainebleau - Ocean front, 101st Street. This is a great large property with lots of amenities. Most of the rooms are ocean and bay view (http://www.clarionoc.com/)
Barefoot Mailman - Ocean block on 35th Street (http://www.barefootmailman.com/)
Windjammer Apartments - Ocean front, 46th Street. A nice older property with studio, 1BR, 2BR, and 3BR apartments. I stayed there for many years. (http://www.ocwindjammer.com/)
