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
