Planning on bringing our dog for a month long visit to St Croix. Anybody know of any restrictions for bringing animals on to the island? Thanks

See info here:
Vet certificate required.
Check airline for restrictions. Certain breeds disallowed, most airlines won't transport animals in the summertime.

If you're traveling with your dog and he is on board with you, there are no temperature restrictions. You must have current shots and a Vet sign off on that within 10 days of traveling into the Territory. You Vet can get all that info online. Mine did.

Be sure your rental allows a pet dog.
The majority of condo associations do not.
If they do, there are restrictions on size and weight, generally.
