Please note in respect for nature- while walking- all dogs are required to be kept on a leash — but what a perfect place to bring your canine companion. With miles of hiking trails, outdoor parks and dog-friendly places– with your dog on a leash he can enjoy the gifts of nature, dine out with you and your travelers, visit dog-friendly venues and get outdoors and exercise his nose with a banquet of different aromas.
OTHER HELPFUL HINTS (FOR TRAVELING WITH “FIDO”)
Securing Animals While Being Transported in Vehicles:
While there are no federal laws restricting travel with your pet, many states however have specific restrictions. Many have laws specifically requiring animals to be secured when being transported in an open area of a vehicle. In some cases, the laws apply only to dogs. None of the laws require the animal to be restrained or secured if inside an enclosed part of the vehicle. It is best to review the state(s) you will be traveling in for their specific laws, especially as laws and regulations are frequently changed.
