You are off by about a week. Dogs are not allowed on the beach until 10/1. 

Hope you enjoy the time with your best friend!

Only after Oct. 1st as others had mentioned. But if you are able to come back to town, don't miss being a part of the O.C.toberfest Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade on the boardwalk! Always a fun event.

I'm sorry, but not until October 1.  Dogs are only allowed on the beach and boardwalk  from October 1 until May 1 of each year. Any other time, and you may be ticketed if caught.

Sorry, but you cannot let your dog run on the beach in September. Dogs are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk in OC at any time before 1 October.

OC law also states pets are allowed on the beach October 1st through April 30th and your dog must be leashed.  You will see dogs running free, but you risk a ticket.  You can walk your dog on the beach all year at Assateague.
