Nothing beats summer days on the beach—playing fetch in the ocean, burying your paws in the sand, and soaking up the sun with your snout in the air. If only someone could tell our humans that a dog’s needs are as plain as rawhide.
For this week’s pet travel tip, T+L reached out to our Instagram follower Christy Anderson (@faithfuladventurer), whose Chocolate Labrador, June, loves to lounge on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: “My top tip is to treat traveling with your pup like traveling with your kids. Pack plenty of snacks, plan on plenty of pit stops, and don't forget to plan some fun activities with your canine in mind.”
So there you have it—a beach day with your pet is as simple as snack-stop-stroll.
