Welcome back to our series on Pet-Friendly Accommodations and Amenities. Today, we are going to give you some information about a couple of exceptional pet hotels and pet-friendly restaurants. We will start with the pet hotels since the first issue pet owners face is where their “fur baby(ies)” will stay while they are on vacation.
If you decide to take your pet with you on vacation, you might not want your “fur baby” to be left alone in a strange room while you are out exploring the Grand Strand. Below are a couple of Dog Hotels/Daycares where you can leave your pet while out exploring the beaches and pick them up to spend the night with the rest of the family. Or if you decided to stay in a place that does not allow pets, you can pick them up and take them to one of the pet-friendly parks that we will tell you about in Part Three of our Pet Friendly Accommodations and Amenities series. Let’s get started!
