Westport House of Strand Pet Policy
Westport offers miles of pet friendly beaches for canine family members!
To be welcome at our Beach House, dogs must be over 12 months old, friendly, housebroken and flea free. An extra $200 pet deposit is required up front. Please note that this is in addition to the $500 security deposit. Birds, cats, and all other pets are prohibited.
Unauthorized pets at our Beach House may result in us withholding the $200 pet fee from the $500 security deposit.
Please observe the following in our Beach House:
• Do not leave your dog unattended in the house while you’re gone.
• Keep your dog leashed when not indoors.
• Please crate your dog if it tends to be destructive. You are responsible for damages and/or extra cleaning.
• Remove sand, dirt and excessive moisture from your dog before allowing him back into the house. If carpet cleaning is necessary following your visit, we will withhold the cost for this service from your Pet and/or Security Deposit.
• If there are any “pet accidents” in the house, please clean these up at once to minimize the risk of a stain. Please treat the area with an enzyme spray, specifically for pet accidents in order to discourage further soiling of that area as most dogs are prone to do.
Please keep in mind that while the beach is a great place to have fun with your dog, there are safety concerns to consider:
• When heading to the beach, make sure your dog has on a collar with proper identification and contact information. In addition to a name tag with your home telephone number, you may wish to put a tag on your dog with your vacation home address and telephone number.
• Don’t forget to bring a leash, a poop bag, a water bowl and fresh cool water, and sun protection for your dog.
• Make sure your dog doesn’t drink water from the ocean. Drinking ocean water can lead to stomach upsets and dehydration due to the high salt content.
• Keep a close eye on your dog to make sure he doesn’t bother other dogs or people and especially not the neighbors!
• Always clean up your dog’s waste and make sure you keep the water and beach clean for other visitors.
Please use the space below for any questions or concerns that you might have.
