Pet Friendly

We know your pet is a beloved member of your family. So, when you’re visiting Del Mar, there’s no reason to leave him behind! Del Mar Village is a pet’s paradise: frolicking along the beach, picnics in the park and watching the sun go down without a care in the world. Guess what? Dogs will love it just as much as you will!

Del Mar Dog Beach

Del Mar has maintained its status as a dog friendly city since incorporation in 1959. 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 many residents and visitors enjoy all areas of the beach, the most popular location for owners to bring their canines is the North Beach area. North Beach, affectionately called “Dog Beach” by dog owners, is located north of 29th Street and stretches nearly one half mile to our border with Solana Beach. The area includes the mouth of the San Dieguito River and a stretch of coastal bluff. 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. Please review the basics of local laws.

Dexter’s Deli

Dexter’s Deli is the “original” health food store for dogs and cats. Since 1996 they’ve been providing the best in natural diets and supplements, up-to-date nutritional information, fresh and natural treats, cool gear, and wild toys and gifts. They’re not a national chain store, we’re just a neighborhood pet store with a twist! They treat every pet like family so they’ll bend over backwards to accommodate you and your pet’s needs. They take pride in providing knowledgeable staff to assist every customer with the most up-to-date information regarding your pets’ health, diet and well-being.


We know your dog is part of the family and deserves a vacation as well. L’Auberge Del Mar creates a relaxing experience for everyone, including your pooch. When bringing your dog to your home away from home, be assured that your friendly companion will experience the same gracious and personalized service as you, starting of course with a pooch welcome amenity.
