How to Have a Successful Dog Beach Trip
Summer is in full swing and temperatures are soaring. While your pup may not love the extreme temperatures, there are still ways to get out and enjoy the season. Dog beaches are becoming more popular as they allow a perfect opportunity for your dog to exercise and cool off in the water. In addition to securing your pup with a Canine Liability insurance policy to be safe, try these tips to make a weekend getaway a successful one.
Meet the requirements.
Make sure to read the fine print before venturing out to the beach. Some places require that dogs be leashed at all times, vaccinated, screened, or only allowed in the water during the off season or after hours. Do your homework before taking your pup to make sure to get the most out of your experience!
Find sleeping accommodations.
If you have to find a place to stay overnight to get to a dog beach, be sure they allow pets. There are many online resources you can use to determine whether or not your dog will be allowed. Make sure to research local, pet-friendly hotels before arriving.
Bring a doggie beach bag.
According to Dogster, when you hit the shore, towels, poop bags, water, a portable dog bowl, food, snacks, and treats should come with you. In addition, consider your dog’s swimming ability. If your pet needs assistance or if you’re unsure, consider getting a pet life vest.
Locate the nearest vet.
This is likely to be a great experience and adventure for your pup. But, in the unlikely event that something happens or if he gets into a scuffle with another dog, it’s important to know where the nearest vet is located.
There are many reasons a dog may bite, and it’s not always 100% preventable.
