Your dog will love the beach town of Point Pleasant. It’s a shore thing! You’ll find lots of dog friendly restaurants in Point Pleasant, and 5 veterinarians to ensure that your pup is well taken care of.

During the off-season between October 1 - April 30, you can bring your dog to enjoy the sun and sand at Point Pleasant Beach anytime between 8 AM and 3 PM. Your dog must be on a leash, and you must be sure to pick up after him, so bring some beach dog baggies.

When it’s time to whine and dine, visit Point Lobster Company with your pooch for some local seafood. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to sit in the outdoor seating area. You’ll be begging for one of their juicy steamed Maine lobsters.

If you’re just visiting and need a dog-friendly place to stay, check out the Point Pleasant Manor. The shore motel allows furry hotel guests up to 20 pounds. During your down time, you can lounge by the large pool, or watch puppy videos on YouTube using the motel’s free WiFi. Make sure to call ahead, and let them know you’ll be traveling with your pup.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy the seabreeze blowing through your fur and your paws in the sand, Point Pleasant is pawsitively the place!

    #1 Point Pleasant Beach

    The great thing about Point Pleasant Beach is that there are lots of sidewalks around town to walk about and sniff some new smells. You can walk adjacent to Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, even if you can’t walk right on it, and still take in lots of local scenery. And what the beach area lacks in dog parks, it makes up for in dog-friendly dining. If you’re looking to cool off during the dog days of summer, nothing beats Stewart’s Root Beer, where you’ll find 12 outdoor tables for dog-friendly seating. Lap up a classic root beer float, or enjoy a diner classic, like a burger or grilled cheese. If a cafe is more your style, try the Green Planet Coffee Company. Dogs are not allowed inside, so you’ll have to tie up Fido or leave him with a friend, but you are welcome to sit in the chairs outside and sip your cup with your pup by your side.
