Pets are members of our family and more and more of us do not want to leave them behind when we go on vacation. Recently at Meyer Real Estate one of our vacationing customers from Phoenix City, Alabama said it best when commenting on her visit "we so enjoyed having our whole family (pet) together. For people who don't have children often their pet becomes one, and it was great to have him with us." She is certainly not alone in this idea of traveling with a family pet, especially if the pet is a dog.
Our beaches are the perfect place to walk and play with dogs, especially in the Fort Morgan area which has less beach restrictions than the City of Gulf Shores. Both areas are accepting to pets with proper care taken to ensure everyone around you has a pleasant experience. More and more of Meyer Real Estate's vacation rental houses located on the beach or within a short walk are now allowing dogs under 30 lbs. to visit with their owners year round. A list of specific friendly pet properties can be found here.
A few years ago my family included our precious Lhasa Apso, Princess, on our beach vacation. Even though we only live a few miles from the beach it was a great treat to spend the relaxing time together at the beach house without the cares of the day. We were happy to find a friendly pet property and I'm a true believer that including the family dog can enhance the beach experience.
