SOUTHERN MAINE

The southern Maine region is the most popular area for visitors coming to the state, as it is only an hour’s drive from Boston. Our southern Maine region is a tourist’s delight with a mix of rocky coastline and some of the most inviting sandy beaches in all the state. The towns and villages along the southern coast are filled with history and unique shopping experiences. There’s no shortage of diverse dining experiences from gourmet to casual takeout food, cozy coffee shops and lively brew-pubs with outside petfriendly seating. Though all towns in Southern Maine welcome you and your pets, here’s a couple we found to be super pet-friendly …

THE YORKS One of southern Maine’s petfriendliest communities is The Yorks. It’s famous for long sandy beaches, and a safe, family-friendly beachtown atmosphere. As each year passes, the area becomes more of a destination for weddings, family reunions, or just a place to get away. Many of the lodging facilities have 6

“pet-friendly” rooms or there are a few businesses in the local area where visitors can board their pets. Many residents and visitors enjoy the pet-friendly beaches with their dogs, even during the summer months. From May - September, dogs are allowed on the beach from sunrise until 8:00am for exercise off leash, but under the owner’s control. From 6:00pm until sunrise, dogs are allowed back on the beach as long as they are leashed. Nubble Lighthouse is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world and is a popular spot for residents and visitors alike. It has a small park with benches that make it a peaceful place to rest and reflect. Once a summer-season-only resort area, York has become a year-round vacation destination. The Museums of Old York maintain numerous historic buildings including Jefferds’ Tavern, the John Hancock Wharf, the Old

Gaol (America’s oldest jail), and the Emerson-Wilcox House. This museum is located in the heart of York Village and offers lectures and special events throughout the year. It is open for tours in the summertime.

OGUNQUIT Neighboring Ogunquit is often considered one of the best beaches in Maine and New England. The 3.5 miles of fine white sand with natural dunes make it a picture perfect spot for your Maine visit. Dogs are permitted on Ogunquit Beach only from October 1st to March 31st. You can easily walk around the downtown village of Ogunquit to find unique restaurants, lots

of accommodation choices, and pleasant shopping experiences. By the end of the 19th century, Ogunquit had become a well-established artist colony that thrives today with art galleries and studios and Ogunquit’s very own Museum of American Art. If you’re an antique enthusiasts then you’ll find Ogunquit to be a shopping paradise. If you are looking for an easy to moderate hike with your family and four-legged friend, Mount Agamenticus is for you. There are many options for shorter and longer hikes, good signage at trailheads, and lots of opportunities to be alone in the woods and one with nature.

GREATER PORTLAND

The biggest challenge facing the visitor to Maine’s Greater Portland area is deciding what to do first. Should you take a delightful harbor cruise to see the lighthouses dotting Casco Bay? Or maybe just relax by the fireplace at one of dozens of cozy inns and guesthouses? As the Pine Tree State’s premier vacation destination, Greater Portland offers a cornucopia of things to do, see and enjoy. As for where to stay, if you prefer to lodge somewhat outside of Portland proper—home to several luxury hotels—the surrounding towns of Cape Elizabeth, South Portland, Falmouth, Freeport, Yarmouth, Westbrook and Scarborough all boast an assortment of comfortable accommodations. There are small B&Bs, medium-sized inns, and 10

larger hotels. Many now welcome pets so you don’t want to leave Fido at home! FidoFriendly Magazine selected Portland as one of the “50 Best of the Best in the Dog World.” Portland’s major artery, Congress Street, will bring you to museums, art galleries, antique shops, studios and theaters. You’ll find that walking around Portland is leisurely leading you from the downtown area to the lure of the waterfront and to nearby parks. The Old Port, with its brick laden streets and eclectic selection of shops and specialty retailers, is just waiting to be explored. There are at least a dozen restaurants in Portland and the

If it’s entertainment and attractions you crave, be sure to start with a stroll through Portland’s delightful Old Port. Both historic and hip, the Port is where you can admire Maine’s largest working waterfront, enjoy live entertainment at popular pubs, or browse through shopping boutiques for everything from organic dog biscuits to imported spices to fine apparel.

MIDCOAST

To the Maine visitor who prefers boating to beach bumming, there is no better region to explore than the Midcoast. The shoreline along this area—from Brunswick and Harpswell to Belfast and Blue Hill—is dramatic, and reflective of Maine’s rich maritime history. Unlike the sandy seashores of Southern Maine, this region features a rougher, rockier coastline more in keeping with Hollywood’s picture of the Pine Tree State. Comprised of thousands of peninsulas, inlets, coves, harbors and islands, Midcoast is a magnet for shipping, sailing and boat building. Excursion boats of all shapes and sizes, from windjammers to working lobster boats, offer passengers, and often their pets, close encounters with whales, seals, seabirds and lighthouses. Here you will find quaint fishing villages to explore, historic sites,

museums—the Maine Maritime Museum is especially engrossing— and of course plenty of lovely shops, restaurants and wineries to investigate. And although early settlers to the Midcoast area focused primarily on building Maine’s fishing and boatbuilding industries, they also built dozens of majestic sea captains’ mansions, many of which are open for touring. The Boothbay Railway Village let’s your furry friend ride the train and they host an annual pet day in June to benefit local shelters. Throughout the Midcoast region, summer means strawberry, blueberry and lobster festivals and there are farmers’ markets cropping up in almost every town. Camden and Rockland are the sites of two

of the larger of these. Here’s a little more in depth look at a couple of very pet-friendly towns in the midcoast.

BOOTHBAY HARBOR There are miles of hiking trails just waiting to be discovered that offer everything from relaxed strolls to challenging hikes in Boothbay Harbor. Spend a peaceful afternoon amid stunning gardens or at a tranquil park, or exploring the seaside village and all its charm. With a long history of fishing, ice cutting, shipbuilding, and lumber as local industries in the 18th and 19th century, Boothbay is the largest boating harbor north of Boston and

is sometimes called the boating capital of New England. Take a tour of one of the lighthouses in the area or sign up for an excursion on one of the sightseeing tours. Particular favorites are the dolphin and whale watching excursions or the puffin cruises that seek out the unusual looking birds. The Boothbay Railway Village offers rides on an authentic steam locomotive that winds its way around a recreated Maine coastal village. You’ll learn about the technology of steam engines and automobiles and you might even score a ride in one of the Railway’s Ford Model Ts. Continued on page 16

Here you’ll also find the Maine Botanical Gardens, where the landscape is spectacular with many varied gardens to view. The gardens change with the season so multiple visits bring new floral experiences each time. Dogs are allowed in the parking areas at the gardens and on an adjacent dog trail.

CAMDEN-ROCKLAND AREA Just a stone’s throw from Rockland are plenty of dog-friendly places to hike in neighboring communities such as Thomaston, Camden, Hope and Lincolnville. Many local hotels and even a few restaurants allow dogs. There are doggie day cares where you can leave your pet for the day if you plan on visiting the local

museums, like The Farnsworth or the Owls Head Transportation Museum, and attractions. You can also hike at nearby Camden Hills State Park where an array of trails rewards you with spectacular panoramas of the area. During the summer, pick wild blueberries and snack your way to the top of the trail. In the glorious fall, pick apples at a nearby orchard.Rent bikes and leaf peep on two wheels in the brisk fall air, or take the bikes by ferry to an island and pedal the perimeter. Then, if Fido gets dirty while you’re off playing tourist, you can always bring him to the local self-serve dog wash.

Natives and visitors alike know, however, that there is more to see and do in this area, a lot more! The residents of Downeast Maine often claim to be the “real Mainers”. They welcome visitors with true downhome hospitality, in locales such as the twin cities of Bangor and Brewer, Bucksport, Ellsworth, Trenton, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Deer Isle, Blue Hill, Stonington, Machias, Calais, Eastport, Lubec and Prospect Harbor.

DOWNEAST & ACADIA

Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain—these are the breathtakingly beautiful destinations that call most visitors to the Downeast region of Maine.

Bar Island, which you can walk to at low tide, gives you a spectacular view when you look back toward Bar Harbor with the towering mountain in the background.

MAINE HIGHLANDS

If you really want to get away from it all, consider a trip to the Maine Highlands with your pet. About a five-hour drive from Portland, you’ll find yourself in the ultimate wilderness where woodlands outnumber houses and distances can be traveled without seeing a soul. At 5,267 feet, there’s Mt. Katahdin, the northern finish line to the Appalachian Trail. Spectacular views and challenging trails draw hikers to its summit every year to make a pilgrimage to the highest point in Maine. There’s Baxter State Park, with almost 210,000 acres of wilderness, complete with unspoiled lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, and waterfalls for people to enjoy (sorry, only service dogs are allowed in the park). For more information please visit: www. baxterstateparkauthority.com You’ll love a visit to Moosehead Lake. This gigantic lake is approximately 40 miles long and 10 miles wide with over 400 miles of shoreline. It serves as home to 80 islands.

It is a magnificent, 92-mile-long ribbon of lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams winding through the heart of northern Maine’s vast commercial forests.

JORDAN POND PATH (JORDAN POND SHORE TRAIL) – NORTHEAST HARBOR

KENNELS, DAYCARES & SITTERS

If you’ve come to Maine with your pet, but you want to take a day trip or a hike somewhere that doesn’t allow them to come along, what do you do? Especially if your outing will keep you away overnight, you may need to find a boarding kennel, daycare or pet sitter. According to the ASPCA, here are a few things to avoid when selecting a boarding facility ... Overcrowding | Limited access (pet guardians should be allowed to visit their pet at any time) | Unwillingness to meet your pet’s needs | Poor customer service | Pets left unattended. According to one expert, kennel designer Kay Key, suggests you ask the following questions. Does the kennel smell? • Is the kennel constantly noisy? • If the kennel accepts dogs that are not neutered or spayed, are they kept separate? • Can you see where your dog will be staying? • Is the kennel in good repair? • Are there newspapers, paper shavings or gravel on the floor? • Is there bedding in both the sleeping area and the run? • Is proof of 34

vaccination required? • Is the kennel heated and/or air conditioned? If boarding, don’t forget to label what you leave with indelible ink, including bedding, toys, food if your dog has a special diet, medications, proof of vaccinations, and contact information, including how to reach your veterinarian in case of emergency. Sometimes though, kennels and daycares may not be the right fit (if your pet isn’t spayed or neutered; or if they don’t like being around other animals, etc.). In those cases individual pet sitters are a wonderful option.Some lodging places in Maine will offer a list of preferred kennels, daycares and pet sitters in their area so be sure to ask for recommendations when booking your stay.

CAMPING

For more than 8 decades Maine has been able to call itself “Vacationland.” The best of the outdoors is offered here in Maine, and no matter the reason or the season, there will never be a shortage of outdoors to enjoy in Maine. Maine’s reputation as the great outdoors allows campgrounds to offer every style of camping available today and there are several. It simply depends on one thing, you and what you are looking to get out of your Maine camping experience. When beginning your search, it may be smart to start with a quick review of camping styles to see which suits your specific needs.

than arriving and finding your pet is unwelcome or will incur extra charges of which you weren’t previously aware. Here are some examples of rules you might expect:

Bring along your pet and enjoy your Maine camping vacation with your entire family!

3. Carry proof of vaccinations.

Pets are often an important part of camping families. Many campgrounds in Maine allow pets. Some campgrounds just allow small dogs, while other campgrounds allow dogs of all sizes as well as other pets. Management has to be sensitive to non-pet owners’ comfort levels when formulating their rules for their properties. Please call ahead to be sure the campground you choose has a pet policy that works for you. You are better off knowing in advance

42

1. Say yes to the leash! Keep pets on a short leash at all times. 2. Make sure your pet has some type of identification on him in case he should stray away from camp. 4. If you leave, take your pet with you. 5. Pick up after your pet and properly dispose of all pet waste in trash receptacles. 6. You are responsible for your pet’s behavior. 7. For health and safety reasons pets are not allowed in pool and playground areas. Happy Camping! Kathy Dyer, Executive Director, Maine Campground Owners Association CampMaine.com

The dog lover (“I have a passion for dogs that goes back to childhood,” Paré says) is particularly excited about a new feature on the company’s website that allows customers to design their own dog beds, and have the customized, finished product shipped within days.

DOG PARK ETIQUETTE

Most of Maine’s dog-friendly beaches are peaceful places. So too are Maine’s dog parks. This is mostly due to the fact that park and beach pet etiquette is well known, well publicized, usually well posted and encouraged by all throughout the state. The two most important things to remember are that these places are shared properties— and the goal when visiting is to have fun! Both require that you pay attention to your companion at all times, and that you get along with other pets and their owners. • According to Maine statute, anyone who uses a dog park does so at his or her own risk. (This is true for any recreational area in Maine open to the public.) • Also according to Maine law, any damage or injury caused by a pet is the responsibility of the owner. • Disposing of your dog’s waste swiftly is a must! Some parks have disposable bags available; others do not. Always bring your own, just in case. • Dogs must be supervised at all times, even when they are offleash. 48

• When off-leash, dogs must still be under voice control. • If your dog becomes aggressive or hyperactive or in some other way disruptive, it’s your responsibility to remove him or her from the park. • Dogs must be leashed while entering or exiting the park. • Most parks require that dogs carry proper identification, license and rabies tags. • Female dogs in heat are typically prohibited from parks. Although tough to prohibit, “mounting” by dogs should be broken up immediately when it occurs. Some parks have sources of water for pets. Bring a bottle for your dog to be on the safe side. These same guidelines apply to Maine’s pet-friendly beaches. What’s most important at these sites is to observe regulations regarding when during the day and during the year dogs are allowed off-leash.

petMAINE 2019: The Ultimate Guide To Enjoying Maine With Your Pets


MAINE STATE PARK RULES:

• Pets must be on a leash not exceeding four feet in length and must not be left unattended. • No pets are allowed on state park beaches. • Pet owners must immediately clean up fecal deposits left by their pets. • No pets are allowed in Sebago Lake State Park Campground or Baxter State Park.

1. Not all dogs can swim. Find some quiet water and give your dog a chance to show you if he can swim or not by encouraging him to follow you.

BEACH RULES

Please observe the following rules when on state-controlled land such as the state parks. For more information, visit www.maine.gov/doc/parks/ programs

THINGS TO REMEMBER AT THE BEACH:

2. Drinking salt water is a bad idea. So, pack plenty of water to keep you both hydrated. 3. Invest in a life vest. Waves, current, and rip tides can quickly exhaust your dog, and that can be deadly. 4. Use sunscreen. Get a sunscreen specially formulated for dogs. 5. Beware of submerged dangers. 6. Don’t overdo it. 7. Cold water can hurt. 8. Rinse thoroughly.
