That being said, there are a few rules. We have two crates for your convenience. If you want to go to a restaurant and leave the dog at home, you must use the crate in the suite. We recommend that you bring whatever bedding for this crate so your dog feels at home. In your bathroom we have a dog bowl and water dish and a welcome treat for your dog. Even the best of dogs, in unfamiliar locations, can act unpredictably. When you are in your room, it's fine for the dog to be free!
We also have a large kennel down by the shore so that you can leave the dog safely behind while you are on or in our pond. If the dog barks and will disturb others, you will be asked to keep the dog with you.
About Ocean Beaches
Between October 1st and April 1st, dogs are usually permitted at the Beaches. They must be leashed at all times and you must be careful not to let them disturb people, nesting birds or stranded seals. The Endangered Species Act protects the piping plover and you are likely to be reported, caught and fined should your dog do this. If you take your dog to a public beach, please keep these good sense rules in mind!
Pooper-scooper bags are usually found at trail heads so make sure to clean-up after your dog. Dog waste can contaminate sensitive shellfish beds and Cape Cod takes this very seriously. On our property, we ask you to do the same so if you don't have bags, just ask us!
Your hosts have a Boston Terrier, named Clara, who will never go in the guestroom. She is still young, so we ask you to leave your dog in the car and ring our front doorbell when you first arrive. We will show you around and then you can unload your dog and belongings through your private entrance. We are happy to welcome guests with well behaved dogs who have loving, responsible owners.
Clara's made so many new friends since we opened our doors, check out some of the dogs who've stayed with us!
On a trip to Florida, we discovered Barron's House of Treasures, where they even have designer life jackets! Make sure to pick up a life jacket for your pooch so you can safely take them in the water here lakeside.
