Tips for a Pet-Friendly Vacation in the Outer Banks

Here are helpful pet-friendly vacation travel tips when vacationing with your dog in the OBX:

    • Identification – Be sure your dog has a tag! They are in a new location and can easily get lost if they get out of the house.
    • Vaccinations – Have your dog’s vaccinations updated if necessary before traveling. Bring a copy of your dog’s medical records in case of an emergency. If something happens to your pet, you will want the local vet or animal hospital to know their history.

  • Check Laws – Be sure to check the leash laws for the town you are vacationing in.
    • Corolla | Leashes are required
    • Duck | No leash required but must be supervised
    • Southern Shores | Leash required no longer than 10 ft
    • Kitty Hawk | Leash required no longer than 12 ft
    • Kill Devil Hills | Leases are required
    • Nags Head | Leash required no longer than 10 ft
  • Water Conditions – Ask the lifeguard what the water conditions are like. Dogs can easily be stung by jellyfish or get sea lice. You can also check for any known rip currents to be aware of.
  • Heat and Sun – Be careful of hot temperatures as your dog can have a heat stroke. Signs of a heat stroke include rapid panting, bright red tongue, weakness, vomiting, thick and sticky saliva, and diarrhea. If your dog shows any of these signs, remove him from the heat immediately and apply ice packs or cool clothes to his head and neck.
  • Hydration – Allow constant access to fresh water when at the beach. Dogs need to keep hydrated just like we do. Also, if they drink too much salt water it can make them sick.
  • Wash Your Pet – Be sure to do this after each trip to the beach. The salt and other minerals can damage their coat.
  • Emergencies – Familiarize yourself with the closest emergency veterinary clinic to your vacation home just in case you need it.
