Things to do with Dogs in Cape May

Here, there are many dog-friendly activities and places to visit to enjoy with your four-legged best friend: 


Doggie Dip at the Pool | October 16 

Join us for our favorite annual event, Doggie Dip at the Pool. Before we drain our oceanfront pool for the winter season, we open it up for an afternoon of dogpaddling. Admission is $10 per dog and all proceeds benefit Animal Outreach of Cape May County. Plus, the first 25 swimmers get a special treat bag, and all pup parents receive 25% off lunch at Harry’s. It’s the perfect way to show your dog a little extra love and attention.
