I’ve got to hand it to Savannah businesses and restaurants. They KNOW that fur babies are a huge part of our guests’ lives and cater to make even the dogs welcome!

Here’s a recent picture with my friends out at Vinnie Van Go-Go’s Pizza down in City Market. Vinnie’s team is always very friendly towards dogs and allows you to dine al fresco with your pooch. They will bring out water for your dogs as well!  Whether you decide to give Fido the crust off your slice is up to you!

Here’s a good tip for dog-owners: when in doubt, CALL! Most restaurants with outdoor seating will allow you to have your dog outside but some places have rules about sizes. Check out our other Fido-Friendly Savannah tips throughout the blog.

Tondee’s Picks: It’s Yappy Hour!

Your hound will be the toast of the town at Yappy Hour!

Tondee, our Busy Bee Rover Reporter, is always on the hunt for the best pet friendly things to do in Savannah!  He had such a howling good time at the The Grateful Hound on his last visit, he wants to make sure all of our pet guests and friends make it for the next Yappy Hour!

Please join us this Friday night, March 30th,  from 7-9 pm for complimentary adult beverages, snacks for both you and your pup, and specials on some of The Grateful Hound’s products. This week, all of their stylish human apparel will be 25% off.  Maggie & John, the owners, say “It’s the perfect opportunity to pick up that ‘Shed Happens’ Tee-shirt you’ve been thinking about or to grab that ‘Wag More Bark Less’ hat that caught your eye the last time you stopped by. We also have a new t-shirt that has been flying out of the store:’Dogs. Cheaper than Therapy’.  You’ll love it!”

Just like play dates in the park or neighborhood walk-a-longs, you’ll find that one of the best ways to help socialize your dog is to expose him to other dogs in a controlled setting.  What better way for you to enjoy time with your pet than with other pet lovers and a cool beer!

The Grateful Hound is located at 32 Barnard Street in Downtown Savannah, just steps from City Market and Ellis Square. For more information, visit them online at www.thegratefulhound.com or call (912) 236-PAWS (7297).

We’re proud to be your pet friendly vacation rental professionals and even your tail will be wagging when you see the newest historic cottages and townhouses we’ve added to our collection.  Busy Bee Vacations helps make Savannah a paw-tastic vacation destination!

Savannah even has many pet friendly eateries around the city, so Tondee will soon begin reporting on his favorite places to dog and dine in the area.  At Busy Bee Vacations, each property that we offer has different policies on pets.
