The DR was the biggest concern. There are a lot of stray dogs and a TON of fleas and ticks. The Far Bahamas
was another place that I found lots of stray dogs and the fleas and ticks. I was concerned for my dogs and for me. The last thing I needed was a pack of hungry stray dogs cover with ticks and fleas messing with my lil dog pack. This is just what I found. There where/are plenty of cruisers that bring there dogs to shore in the DR. I did not find it worth it. And in the Bahamas
it did begin to change as we sailed up the chain. By the time we made it to Georgetown
it was VERY americanized and dogs seemed welcome everywhere.
Just my opinion!!
