Vacationing with a Dog

We are looking into going to OOB next year and want to bring our dog. I know they can't be on the beach between 10am and 5pm but what are the other guidelines? Can they be on the pier? Can they be in the downtown area? The place we are going to rent allows dogs so I'm curious if he has to stay home all the time or not? I'd like to think I could walk him around town day and night at least.

I don't think dogs are welcome in the square area during the day:

"It shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog or other animal to permit such dog or other

animal within the following described area: Within the public way from the top of Old Orchard

Street to the beach, which includes the area known as the square, during the period from

Memorial Day to Labor Day from the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m."

There are so many dog friendly places outside of OOB to spend days, if you want to bring the dog. For example, Wolfe's Neck park in Freeport is a beautiful place to picnic, and dogs are welcome in much of the downtown area if you like to shop. Also, Portland Head Light is a must-see, and dogs are welcome there too.
