Rehoboth Beach is one of the most popular destination for dog-lovers and their furry friends. The beach is a great place for dogs to get some exercise, enjoy the water, and socialize with other dogs. And, of course, there’s nothing better than watching your dog play in the surf and chase after a Frisbee. Not only is the beach good for your dog’s physical health, but it’s also a great way to relieve stress and bond with your furry friend. So next time you’re planning a trip to Rehoboth beach, don’t forget to bring your four-legged friend along for the fun.

 

At the Canalside Inn, we are all about spoiling our furry friends no matter the occasion. WE encourage you to bring your dog with you on your vacation and stay at the Canalside inn. The Canalside inn offers all the comfortable hotel accommodations, all while staying with your best friend.  (please review our pet policy here)  Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and surrounding areas are the perfect place to bring your dog for some R&R. 

 

Rehoboth Beach is the perfect spot to relax, with 5 of the top local golf courses, our inn is perfectly situated for dog and golf lovers alike!   On your visit, be sure to say hi to our unofficial mascot, Sky ‘The Inn-Keeper‘.  Sky is a two-year-old Siberian Husky.  Sky is not a typical Husky, because he usually isn’t hyper.  Like all Husky’s, his favorite activity is running.  He loves running alongside the bike when we go on weekend adventures to select Delaware state parks or beaches.   Sky is gentle and loves children, and he loves treats like all dogs!  We rescued Sky from a humane society in South Florida.  This will be his second winter in Rehoboth and we can’t wait for him to revisit the snowy season this winter!  Come by and say hello to Sky the in keeper next time you’re in town!
