Travelling to Croatia with your dog

Even though Croatia is a pet-friendly country there are still some rules you’ll have to follow when travelling to Croatia with your pet considering Croatia’s travel regulations for pets. It’s obligated for your pet to have a pet passport and health certificate, it also has to be microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. 

Before travelling it would be wise to test your pet by putting him in conditions similar to those at your travelling destination. Some pets are too scared to travel and it would be easier for them to spend a few days apart from you than putting them through the stress of travelling.

With an increased number of tourists coming to Croatia every year with their pets, Croatia recognized the importance of making this kind of visitor as comfortable when travelling as possible so the number of pet-friendly places is getting bigger daily. 

For now, the region with the biggest number of dog-friendly beaches is Kvarner, you can find eight dog-friendly beaches only on the island of Lošinj, and there are many more in other parts of this area. 

Even though all Croatian beaches are public and you can swim with your pet wherever you want when it comes to wild and isolated beaches that don’t have a sign that states otherwise, keep in mind that beaches with a blue flag are forbidden for pets.

After you have chosen your pet-friendly travel destination, don’t forget that your pets have their needs just like you and the rest of your family. So when going to the beach don’t forget to bring sunscreen and something to protect your dog from the insects, also protect their skin and paws and keep them in the shade as much as possible.
