Tips For Bringing Your Dog To Pawleys

Posted on 11/13/2015

When bringing "Fido" to Pawleys, you need to prepare like you would for a child. Here’s what you should consider before you leave.

Bring drinking water & a bowl: While your dog may enjoy drinking the ocean, it does not hydrate them. Beware of the amount of ocean water they drink, it may cause an upset stomach.

Provide shade: Like people dogs can get sunburn and it is best to limit the time in the direct sun. Offer your dog a cool shady spot to lay when it gets too hot. If the sand is too hot for you, it is too hot for your dog.

Recommended Items: Toys, First Aid Kit, Treats, Leash, Medication & Specialty food, Important medical papers, Pet bed & other daily necessities, Sunscreen, ID, Life Jacket, etc.

 Scooper & Extra Bags: Like any public place you must pick up after your dog.

Know The Rules:

- Georgetown County Beach Rules and Regulations: Dogs must be leashed from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dogs that are not leashed during other hours must be under voice control and owners must be able to demonstrate voice control to a law enforcement officer if asked

- Lachicotte Rental Policy: Dogs are allowed only in designated Pet Friendly homes. NO EXCEPTIONS. Pets are limited to two domestic, housebroken dogs unless otherwise advertised. There is a non-refundable $200.00 (plus tax) pet cleaning and spray fee that will be charged to each guest bringing a pet. Any violation with pets in a No Pets home or any pet other than a dog will be cause for termination of tenancy.

Keep An Eye Out: Dogs have a talent for finding hidden objects on the beach. Look for old fishing gear, broken glass, garbage, jellyfish, etc. 

Respect Others:  Some people will be excited to see your dog but others are not as welcoming. Do not let your dog disrupt other beach goers.

The above tips are meant as a general guideline please contact us or your vet for more information. It is recommended that sick, injured or pregnant dogs stay at home.
