DEL MAR (KUSI) — Del Mar has been known as a dog-friendly city since 1959, but during the summer months, dogs are not allowed on the main beach and they must be on a leash in the other two beach areas.

Nine months of the year, dogs are allowed along the entire two-plus mile stretch of beach in addition to the city's two major parks, Seagrove Park and Powerhouse Park.   

While laws restrict access to half of the Del Mar beach during the summer months, North Beach remains open to dogs; however, dogs must be restricted to a six-foot leash.

Del Mar's local dog laws are designed to provide access for dogs and their owners throughout the year.
