Below is the Delaware state Law concerning dogs on bathing beaches. Not allowing dogs on bathing beaches is the norm and has always been part of Towers Shores rules for as long as I have been a homeowner (over 25 years) to the best of my knowledge.
§ 1702 Dogs on state coastal beaches.
Whoever, being the owner, possessor, harborer or custodian of any dog, allows such dog to be upon the designated swimming or sunbathing area of a state coastal beach strand at any time between May 1 and September 30, inclusive, of any year, except when such dog is on said property on behalf of a law enforcement agency or a blind person, as defined in § 2101 of Title 31, is guilty of a violation and shall be fined not less than $25 nor more than $50. For each subsequent offense, the person shall be fined not less than $50 nor more than $100. “Coastal beach strand” shall mean all that coastal real property between the western base of the dunes and the low water mark except those lands within a municipality which has enacted an ordinance governing the activities of dogs on said real property.
