Pets Deserve a Vacation Too!

record 68% of American households now own a pet. Most, by far, are dogs and cats, who are now traveling more often with their human companions.  That's why an increasing number of vacation rentals don't just accept pets, they downright cater to them - usually for a fee that goes toward deep-cleaning. 

The entire family is welcome to vacation in Virginia Beach and that includes Fido and Whiskers too! Whether it's romping on our 35-miles of sandy beaches, taking a doggy-paddle in the ocean or playing a little game of fetch in our off-leash dog parks, you and your four-legged companion can experience “a dog’s life” at the beach!

Pets are welcome to vacation in Virginia Beach all year long.  During the Spring and Fall months (before Memorial Day and after Labor Day weekend) dogs are invited to enjoy the public beaches and boardwalk area anytime. However, during the Summer months, (Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend) pets are limited to frolic on the north end of Virginia Beach above 42nd Street and the south end of Virginia Beach in the Sandbridge area before 10am and after 6pm. During the Summer season, dogs are also allowed on the boardwalk from 6am to 10am only.

Luckily, the question of where to find pet-friendly beaches is much easier. Coastal communities such as Sandbridge Beach realize it's a "win-win" as long as the human half of the equation does their homework.  That means making sure their license and vaccinations are up to date, observing leash laws and, it should go without saying but we'll say it anyway, scooping the poop. :)  If you and your 4-legged buddies are traveling to a beach away from home, it's also a good idea to attach your vacation address and contact info to their collar.
