Pets are prohibited in the resort’s restrooms, showers, or inside cottages; however, you may bring them inside at night. Three pets allowed per beach accommodation. All pets must be licensed and vaccinations current.

While we understand that not all dog breeds are aggressive and should be treated case-by-case, we are required by ordinance to restrict certain breeds. Breed restrictions came about in an effort to protect people from what some consider “dangerous” breeds with uncontrollable aggression– especially pit bulls, bull terriers, rottweilers, and mastiffs. In other words, if dangerous pets aren’t allowed in, there’s a lesser chance attacks or bites will happen. Newport Dunes Security has sole discretion when any determination is made. We apologize for the inconvenience and unfairness.

To ensure pets continue to be welcomed in our seaside city, please always pick up after them, keep them leashed, and be kind and considerate. We have waste bags for your convenience located along the promenade. We also provided an off-leash dog run located by Restroom #21.
