Tips for dog parents....
With temperatures in the 80s and 90s here in the summer, your best friend can easily become dehydrated. Keep a bottle of cool water handy. Also, there are special sunscreens for dogs. Put ice cubes in your dog's water dish and encourage him/her to stretch out on cool tiles. Dog-friendly restaurants are listed above.

Dog Parks

Plan to take your dog to one of the local Dog Parks! They are all FREE except for Surfside Beach (see information below) and are all well-kept and pet friendly!Barc Park North This dog

NEW Opened 3/1/ 2014! Waggin' Tail Dog Parks at the North Myrtle Beach Parks and Sports Complex

Barc Park is on Mallard Lake Drive This dog park is located near The Market Common on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. This 11-acre outdoor dog park opened in 2000. The fenced-in grounds are separated into a smaller dog area with structures such as ramps, hoops and a larger dog area featuring a lake for doggie aquatics. Shaded areas with picnic tables and benches are welcoming for pet owners. Hours are sunrise to sunset, daily (maintenance is performed a few days each quarter; dates are posted at the park). Free. For additional info, call 918-2390.

Dog Park in Surfside Beach
Note: The dog park in Surfside Beach is not free, like the two shown above. The Town of Surfside Beach has expanded and fenced in an existing park behind the library on Surfside Drive. Take your dog to the Dog Park and see it for yourself. ALL dogs must have and wear current Town of Surfside Beach license tags. Residents and non-residents $10. Tags can be purchased at Town Hall 115 US Highway 17 N.  843-913-6111. All other information about the Dog Park is here.

Did you know that the 1.2 mile ocean front Boardwalk promenade features nine doggie water fountains? These fountains are built at dog-level and are accompanied by human water fountains. From the day after Labor Day until May 1, dogs are allowed on the boardwalk at all times, but they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. From May 1 through Labor Day, dogs are allowed on the boardwalk only between 5:00 and 10:00 a.m. (Note that the doggie water fountains are NOT foot washes. (Separate human showers and foot washes are provided at other locations along the boardwalk and elsewhere.)
Thanks to the City of Myrtle Beach for this information!
