    Tips For Traveling With Pets To Palmetto Dunes

    Heading on a vacation to Hilton Head Island this winter? Take your four-legged friend with you! At Palmetto Dunes, all family members are welcome. After all, what’s a vacation without your very best friend?

    To get the most out of your stay at Palmetto Dunes, we’ve compiled a few pet-friendly pointers to help you and your furry friend have the vacation of a lifetime!

    Vacation Preparation:

    1. Double check your pet’s paperwork.

    Before you leave, take a look through all of your pet’s paperwork and make sure they have the appropriate veterinary travel documents.

    2. Do a medical check.

    Ensure all required injections are current. If your pet is on any medications, be sure to visit the vet prior to your trip so that any necessary supplies are in order.

    3. Make a reservation.

    Book a Palmetto Dunes property fit for you and Fido. From one-bedroom condos to spacious villas, the perfect spot for pets up to 40 pounds are available seasonally.

    4. Call ahead.

    Be prepared! We’re here to help with any questions you have or any special needs your pet may require, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch prior to your visit at 866-650-4130.


    Traveling Tips:

    1. Use a crate.

    Whether you’re driving or flying, it’s best to use a crate for safe transport. To help your pet adjust to their crate, let them enter it on their own, and consider tossing in their favorite treat and/or toy.

    2. Review policies.

    If you’re traveling by air, be sure to review the airline’s pet policies, as they’ll likely have specific rules and protocols to get your pet ready.

    3. Plan mealtimes.

    Some pups can be sensitive to motion, so help make things a little easier on their stomach by serving their meal well before transit (4-6 hours is ideal).

    4. Schedule in activity.

    Let your furry friend run or take them for a long walk prior to crate time – a tired dog is much more likely to remain calm during transit.


    Destination Advice:

    1. Familiarize yourself with the surroundings.

    Identify parks, paths, and other locations to get some exercise with your dog. Your front desk staff can point you in the direction of Hilton Head Beaches, which are dog friendly in the mornings and evenings, and a must for your vacation to-do list.

    2. Explore the new environment.

    When you arrive, be sure to take your pup out for a walk. It’s the perfect way to explore, and it helps you both relax and adjust to your new surroundings.

    3. Keep your schedule.

    Pets thrive on healthy routines so do your best to keep to your regular walking and meal times throughout your trip.

    4. Create a comfortable space.

    Make your pet at home with familiar items such as their bedding or favorite toy. This will instantly help them to feel more secure and relaxed.

    Now that you’ve made all of the necessary arrangements, and booked your pet-friendly Palmetto Dunes vacation rental, it’s time to relax and enjoy your vacation!
