Taking A Dog On Vacation

Hi everyone,

Hubby and I are taking a get away trip next week, This will be our first get a way since his last deployment, so it is very important.

We would like to travel with our dog, but have never done so before.

Will she be allowed on the bay beaches, as well as the gulf? Do alot of the resturants have outdoor areas to eat.

We have reservations at the Holiday Inn Emerald Beach.

Thank you,

Marlin Texas USA

Since you haven't traveled with a dog before, you don't know how stressful it will be for the dog, or you.

If you take her to the beach, will you be willing to clean up and dispose of any of her deposits?

If you and your husband decide to go out without the dog, where will she be kept?

Some restaurants are dog-friendly, some aren't. You will be limiting your options because of the dog.

Personally, I'd find a good, reliable kennel and leave her there in air-conditioned comfort with 24 hour care. Some dogs are not happy travelers.

wooo I didn't mean I wanted permission, I asked about the area of Corpus.

Maybe this isn't the place to ask after all.

Thanks anyway.

By all means, travel with your pup!!!! At your hotel on the bay in Corpus you might need to keep her/him on a leash. But just take a short drive out to the island and you will find plenty of secluded beach where he/she can run off-leash and have a great time. We have taken our dogs to Port A many times and find it very dog-friendly.

Thank you so much for all of your help. I am really a responsible person, and would of course make sure that we did not leave a mess behind.
