All Dogs Go To Charleston SC: A Dog Friendly Vacation


Traveling can be stressful for pets and people, but it doesn’t have to be.  With all of the outdoor dining, walkable shopping and sightseeing, as well as countless beaches and parks, it’s no surprise that Charleston SC was voted 2016 Best City for Pet Travelers by GoPetFriendly.com. If you're planning a Charleston vacation and wonder if you should bring your dog, we’ve put together some tips to help you and your furry friends have the best vacation possible.

Talk To Your Vet: Before you go, double check with your vet to make sure that your dog is current on all vaccines and is healthy and fit to travel. It’s also a great opportunity to talk to them about remedies for motion sickness, restlessness, and general anxiety - especially if this is your dog’s first time traveling and you’re not sure how they’ll do.

Packing Your Pet’s Bags: Just like you, we're sure your dog has a few things they will need while they’re away from their home turf. Some of the essentials to remember:

1.   Vaccination records; medications, vitamins, and supplements
2.   Collar with tags and current contact info, leash; waste baggies
3.   Food and treats, portable water and feeding container
4.   Your dog’s bed; TOYS, TOYS, TOYS!
5.   TIP: Bring an old towel to dry off after swimming in the ocean or after a good rain.

We Welcome Your Dogs! We know dogs are just another member of the family and for that reason, we are happy to welcome your four-legged family member! Between downtown and Folly Beach, we have 7 luxury vacation rentals that allow dogs:

Beach Rule Beware: While most beaches welcome well-mannered dogs, some do not and many have rules around having your dog on the beach. For example, Folly Beach permits visiting dogs, on leash, before 10am and after 6pm. While some beaches require leashes, others have off-leash hours. Every beach is different so check the rules before bringing your dog with you to the beach. BringFido.com is a great resource on local dog-friendly beaches in Charleston.

In The Dog House: When your dog is tired out from all of the swimming, sniffing, walking, and exploring they’re probably ready for a day off. Call one of Charleston's many Pet Sitter & Dog Walker services to take care of your pet until you return.

Whether they’re sniffing their way through charming and historic downtown Charleston SC or splashing in the waves and digging in the sand on Folly Beach, your dog will be happy that you brought them along - after all, their favorite place in the world is wherever you are! Book one of our pup-friendly luxury vacation rentals today and get their tail wagging!
