Pet Friendly Destinations

James Taylor said “Being on a boat that’s moving through the water, it’s so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what’s important and what’s not.” Readers of our magazine tell us over and over again that what is important to them are their friends and family, including the four-legged ones.  What is not always clear, however, is where to dock your boat with a canine companion. There are so many harbor side villages and towns, yet not all are accommodating to animals. When making Day Tripper plans, consider these places where your pet should receive a friendly reception.

Babylon Village: Leash and “pooper scooper” laws apply and a dog- run is available.

Blue Point: Only head here if you have more than three or fewer leashed dogs and five cats or less!

East Hampton: Pets are OK on the beaches as long as they are kept 300 yards from guarded areas.

Freeport Village: Licenses required for dogs.

Greenport: Mitchell Park has a dog walking area and provides “Mutt Mitts.”

Huntington: Blydenburgh County Park Dog Run is available for pet recreation.

Lindenhurst: Leashed pets are allowed in Lincoln Park provided they don’t bark and annoy others.

Mattituck: There’s a dog park in Peconic, Southold.

Montauk: Pets are allowed on public beaches before 10 AM and after 6 PM; the rest of the town is considered dog friendly.

Northport Village: Filled with leashed dogs on Main Street and in the waterside dog park.

Port Jefferson: As you stroll the village streets, you’ll find doggie scoop bags

dispensers for your convenience.

Port Washington: Christopher Morley Park welcomes dogs.

Sag Harbor: Canine visitors need to comply with leash and “pooper scooper” laws.

Westhampton: Pets are allowed on beaches from 7-9 AM and 7-9 PM.
