If you’re bringing your four legged best friend on this family vacation, we recommend you do a bit of planning beforehand to ensure a fun and safe experience for everyone. The beach is a fantastic place to bring your dog, and we provide over 100 pet-friendly Outer Banks rentals so you can cohabitate in luxury! Before you arrive, make sure you are aware of each town’s leash laws (below) and any other safety concerns.
When hanging out on the beach with your furry friend, bring fresh water for them so that they don’t resort to drinking saltwater. Your dog might try to drink the saltwater regardless, so keep an eye on them. Drinking too much saltwater can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Also, make sure that you bring plenty of plastic baggies to clean up after your pet. Carolina Designs Realty provides a leash clip-on baggie dispenser at check in. (Clean beaches are our pride and joy here on the Outer Banks and we appreciate all efforts of our guests and residents to keep it that way!)
