The City Of North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach from May 15 to September 15: No dogs allowed on the beach 9 am - 5 pm. The leash law is in effect at all times; the maximum leash length is 7 feet. Pet owners must pick up and properly dispose of pet waste.

Many of these rules in North Myrtle Beach function as state laws as well, meaning that there may be certain repercussions one may have to encounter if these are not followed. It is important to note that there are certain parts of North Myrtle Beach that restrict entry for pets. Even though these are small stretches of the beach, trespassing onto them can result in disciplinary action.

The North Myrtle Beach Park And Sports Complex has a special dog play area designed with your four-legged friend in mind where they can have a good time and meet new friends. Learn more about the North Myrtle Beach dog rules here.
