If you plan on bringing your pet with you on vacation, Cape Cod offers travelers many options for lodging that allow you to keep your pet with you. Be sure to check on specific policies, such as in-season restrictions, weight limitations, etc. Always bring your pet's rabies vaccination records and other important information (see tip above).
Even though a place may welcome pets as guests, always be sure to notify the establishment that your pet will be with you before making your reservation, and get all of the confirming details sent to you in writing. Be sure to be upfront about all of the details about your pet, too. Taking these steps avoids any misunderstandings or unexpected complications when you arrive.
