Traveling with your pet to Myrtle Beach

So you’ve decided to bring your dog with you on your vacation to Myrtle Beach. Great! Of course I suggest checking out each page of this website (www.MyrtleBeachPetFriendly.com) to plan your trip – from booking a pet friendly hotel, directions to the nearest dog park to the rules for allowing a dog on the beach during the season you are here. This website has so much great information regarding your canine companion that you’ll be an expert before you arrive.

If you are driving to Myrtle Beach with your pet, there are a few things that you need to plan. While it is a treat to have your best friend sit in your lap, veterinarians suggest that dogs should be crated or harnessed in the car while you are driving. This makes it safer for the dog in case of an accident and will cause less distractions for the driver. Depending on how long your drive is your pet will need to stop for exercise to get rid of their pent up energy during the trip. This allows them to be calm and more able to rest during the drive.

Safety wise – don’t ever leave your pet in an unattended car, especially during the summer months. It will become hot and your dog will become dehydrated very quickly. It's also a good idea not to feed your pet too much before a trip in a car. Dogs can develop motion sickness and that can be quite messy in a car.

Bringing your dog on vacation can be fun but there are a lot of considerations to take into account when planning the trip. We give you the information that you will need while you are visiting Myrtle Beach so you and your best friend will have a safe and happy vacation

Interview with Corrine Crickmore

Tell us about Barett and how he is special

 

Barrett is a 2 year old Bull Terrier.  She came all the way across the country from California in August of 2012 and got her name from her Daddy's favorite gun.  We got her because our first bull terrier, Palmer (named after his Daddy's favorite golfer), was 14 and my husband thought she could learn all of Palmer's good behavior as a puppy.  Palmer passed onto the Rainbow Bridge in December of 2012 and six days later Barrett was diagnosed with dual luxating patellas (knees).  At the tender age of 7 months, she underwent 2 different surgeries on each knee to fix the problem, each knee surgery was then followed with 30 days of rehab up in Wilmington.  Today, a year and several pins & screws later, she shows no signs of knee issues and has fully recovered and healed from her surgeries.  Had someone else adopted Barrett, it is likely that she would have been put down because of her knee issues, but we had to try and give her the best life that we could and she deserves! We think we made the right decision…… :)

Some local advice ... An interview

This interview is with Brenda and David Klee who have lived with dogs at the beach for over 20 years.  “Having a nice big backyard for the dogs to run is nice, but there are many other things to enjoy around the area too. These dogs really love to be on trails and in the woods, and not so much beach dogs, although we do long walks on the beach when its not crowded or hot”.  They would not think of traveling without the company of their dogs, and have enjoyed many remote get a ways, as well as a hotel in downtown Atlanta with them.  “It is a little extra work to travel with them, but well worth it.  Somehow the journey would not be complete, and the enjoyment would not be as great without our dogs with us”.  Here are a few tips that will help you with your visit to the Myrtle Beach area.
