When are Dogs allowed on the Boardwalks in Delaware?

When moving into a new home, there are a lot of factors to consider. One of which is how comfortable your animals will be in the area you're moving to! 

As many retire and decide to start searching for their forever home, they often consider downsizing. This often means their furry friends have less space to run and play. The good news is, Delaware is home to tons of parks, beaches, and boardwalks that you can take your pets to so they can get the fresh air and room to run they deserve!
