Of the 825 miles of beaches the state of Florida has to brag about, Pensacola Beaches have consistently been named among the best in the state. The sand it a little whiter, the water a little bluer, and the downtown areas a little more charming.
One of the most charming things about Pensacola is the way planners remembered to include dog parks, including Pensacola Beach Dog Park. Imagine that clean white sand and clear blue water with dogs bounding excitedly up and down the shore. That is precisely what you will find at this dog park.
While they’re not human, dogs experience some of the same emotions as their human counterparts. They are sometimes happy, sometimes sad, and can even experience anxiety. In short, dogs — like humans– can use a mini-vacation, a place to get away and destress.
This dog park is a place where dogs can be dogs while surrounded with new smells, sites, and points of interest. It’s a place for four-legged friends to let go and relax. For their humans, the dog park is a place to breathe deep the ocean air while watching their furry friends leave paw prints in the sand.
Situated directly on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, the park gives your pet something to look forward to. This is truly a place where they can let go and have fun! And it’s nearly as much fun for pet owners as it is for the dogs. After all, it’s no ordinary dog park. The park is different every time you visit, depending upon the time of year and time of day.
The only downside of Pensacola Beach Dog Park is its size. It’s approximately the length of one football field. While this is fine on low attendance days, it can get very crowded! It seems there is crowd most days and that is a testament to the beauty and convenience of this park.
The fact that the dog park is small underscores the need to follow park rules, including keeping your dog(s) on a leash at all times. Like every dog park, there are bound to be dust-ups between pets and a leash can help protect your pet from other dogs. A leash also helps those whose dogs are not quite as perfectly behaved as yours control their furry family member.
