Travel Information -
Local, Air, Car Travel with Your Dog or Cat

In Martha's Vineyard you'll find dogs walking on the streets, accompanying their masters on the steamship boats, hanging out of car windows along Beach Road or walking along their owners on the many trails and beaches on the island.

Surely, your pet would rather roam one of the many forested trails with you, than suffer from salt and sun damage for a long day on a beach with no shelter.  When you do take your dog to the beach for a morning walk, or an evening stroll, remember that all excrement must be removed and properly disposed. Violating these restrictions is an offense ($50).

Dehydration Can Make Your Dog Drink Salt Water

Most dogs love running, playing fetch, and interacting with other dogs, and a trip to the beach can be a perfect opportunity for your dog to do those things. However, exercise causes increased water loss through muscle contraction, respiration, and evaporation from the skin. Your dog needs to replace that lost water; exercise will leave him with an urge to drink. If you don't provide fresh water often at the beach, your dog will drink salt water.

How Salt Water Further Dehydrates Your Dog

Salt water has an osmotic effect, pulling liquid into your dog's intestines. This can cause diarrhea, which contributes to dehydration. If your dog drinks too much salt water too fast, he could vomit, leading to further dehydration. Even if your dog doesn't actually drink salt water, he can ingest small amounts by handling salt-water-soaked balls and toys or by swimming in salt water.

Remember that hot sand will be hot on your dog's pads, too. "Their pads are just as sensitive as your feet," said Sybil Soukup, executive director of the Humane Society of North Iowa. Hot sand can burn your dog's pads.

Prepare Your Pet for Car Travel
It is important that you prepare your pet to travel in your car in advance.

Most pets will be just fine, but some may suffer from motion sickness or anxiety. Also you should consider getting a crate for your pet. They will be more secure in a crate.
