A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of setting up our tent at Blue Jacket Park for their annual Paws for Peace event. If you’ve been following us on social media, you probably know that we’ve been making appearances at park events like these all around Orlando and Central Florida. Even when events aren’t involved, we love taking Jackson and Finley out for a day of fun in the sun, and the best part about it is, we have a huge selection of locations to choose from.

One of the things we love the most about living in Central Florida is how many wonderful dog parks there are in our area. Here’s a list of some of our favorites:

  • Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte is pet-friendly in most areas. This beautiful park over the water has clearly designated pet walk areas and is open to on-leash pets. Just be sure to check their event schedule before you go - during big events, no pets are allowed unless otherwise specified.

  • Blue Jacket Park in Winter Park is a popular spot for runners. Like Crane’s Roost, Blue Jacket is an on-leash park, but if you have an active dog that likes to join you for a jog, this is a great place to do it.

  • Doctors Dog Park is located near Wekiwa Springs and has a number of fun amenities for you and your dog, like pet showers, benches, water fountains, and a bridge. This park is off-leash, so your dogs have plenty of room to run and play!

  • Barber Dog Park is not far from the airport area, and it’s a great place for agility training! Barber includes a separate area for small dogs, so you can rest easy letting your little one run around with his buddies. Take your dog around the agility equipment and give them a few lessons on climbing and jumping - it’s sure to enrich and entertain them!

There are a number of other dog parks waiting for you to explore around the Orlando area. Check out this list from BringFido.com to see some of the top rated dog parks and beaches in the area. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages to find out where we’ll be next!

The Dog Days of Summer

in Orlando

If you haven’t noticed, summer is officially here in Central Florida! Around our neighborhood, we’ve seen more people walking their furry friends and playing outside, and we’re sure you have too. That’s why this is our favorite season of the year - it gives us the perfect opportunity to take our dogs outside to exercise and have fun.

If you live in the Central Florida area, you’re in a great spot for pet-friendly activities. Here are just a handful of our favorite summer dog destinations in the Orlando area:

  • Wekiva Island: The Island is a fun destination for pets and owners alike! Located at Wekiva Springs, Wekiva Island is 100% dog friendly, from the cabana to the bar and even to the canoe! This is a great choice for any pet parents whose pup has an adventurous spirit and likes to play in water.

  • Thornton Park: Want to bring your dog along while you head out for a quick bite or a coffee? Stop by Thornton Park, where you can find plenty of pet-friendly spots with outdoor seating. Dexter’s is one of our favorites!

  • Dog Parks: Great news: Orlando has a number of beautiful dog parks where you can take your pup to run off some energy. Lake Baldwin Park features a small dog beach where pups can wade and splash as well as plenty of dry areas to explore. There’s probably a park close to your home!

  • Smyrna Dunes Beach: If you’re willing to drive a few extra minutes, you’re in for a treat at Smyrna Dunes Beach. This beach is dog-friendly, so you and your pup can have fun in the sun together. Be sure to pack extra sunscreen!

  • Hiking Trails: You may not realize just how many walking trails are set up around the Orlando area. Many of these trails are dog-friendly, so you can take your pooch on an extra long walk. Try Turkey Lake Park if your dog likes the shade of the woods, or opt for the Cady Way trail for a scenic walk near Baldwin! Check out BringFido.com for a list of all the dog-friendly trails nearby.

Your dog deserves a getaway this summer! Before you go on your adventure, make sure your pup is hydrated and has food in their tummy. Our bone broth for dogs is a great way to give your pups a nutritious boost when they need it most. To learn more or order your bone broth, browse the Pawsitively Pure website.
