Myrtle Beach State Park – 4401 South Kings HWY
While there are some restrictions on where pets can go in this gorgeous park, many areas are open to Fido, provided he is on a leash that is shorter than six feet long. You can even take Fido to the beach in the mornings or evenings! Check the website here for specific information. Before taking Fido to a doggy park, make sure he is up to date on all shots, and is wearing current tags. We also recommend keeping copies of his registration with you. Be sure to read and obey the park rules! When you arrive at the park, watch the other pups to be sure that there are no aggressive dogs in the play zone before letting your pooch off-leash. If your four-legged pal sometimes acts aggressive to other dogs, he may not be a suitable playmate for other dogs. Intact dogs can also cause problems, so keep an eye out for canines that are seeking mates. Last but not least, always bring water along for your canine buddy, and pick up after him.
