Palm Beach is a beautiful place that attracts visitors from all over the world. People love the location because it is suitable for individuals, families, and groups. But what about pets? If you have a dog, are there any places in Palm Beach that will welcome both you and your canine?
You might be surprised by the sheer number of places in Palm Beach that are dog-friendly, including:
1). Lake Woof
Lake Woof is special. As a dog park, it was designed to cater to every need your pet might have. They accept animals of all sizes, including the largest breeds. This matters because they have pet washing stations. Located in John Prince Park, Lake Woof has 5 recognition sites. They sell engraved bricks at $250.
2). City Paws (Howard Park)
City Paws is another dog park that caters to both small and large animals. The establishment’s biggest attraction is the crowd. If you live in the area, you are bound to see several familiar faces. This will simplify the process of finding trustworthy people whose dogs can play with your canine. The park has fountains and clean-up bags.
3). Peanut Island
This man-made Island is somewhat inconvenient for some people because you need a ferry to get to it. Though, there are plenty of water taxis and private boats in the area. However, the island is quite attractive to travelers because it welcomes dogs. Though, you must leash the dogs. The Island has a thriving beach that is popular among partiers.
Howley’s Restaurant is part of a historic diner that has a 1950s sheen. Howley’s is just as historic in appearance, which might explain why it serves classic American food. The vibe puts people at ease. If you have a dog, the restaurant has an outdoor patio that welcomes pets. You can eat with your entire family without neglecting your dog. The establishment has a menu that includes organic foods. I really like Howley’s because right around the corner is my Palm Beach CPA, so every tax season I drop my taxes off to be filed and while it’s being done I take a nice, long lunch at Howleys.
5). Jupiter Dog Beach
Jupiter Beach offers 2.5 miles of dog-friendly real estate. Dog owners are not expected to keep their dogs on a leash. However, the beach has strict rules. For instance, they only welcome well-behaved dogs that know how to socialize.
Because dogs don’t have to stay on a leash, aggressive dogs are not permitted. Dog owners should keep their dogs within the boundaries of the beach. The non-leash provision does not apply to the stretch between the parking lot and the beach. In other words, dogs must stay on a leash as their owners walk from the car to the beach. But even with these rules, the beach is the perfect spot for a dog and his owner to have a good time.
6). Palm Beach Lake Trail
If you want to take a walk with your dog but you greatly desire a change of scenery, give the Palm Beach Lake Trail a chance. The trail is safe for your dog because most of it is off the main road. Though, certain sections expect trekkers to cross a few streets along the way.
The trail is relaxing because it is mostly paved and there are plenty of trees on the side to keep dogs and their owners protected from the sun. The path will take you past several beautiful mansions.
Even more convenient are all the shops and restaurants you will encounter along the way. Feel free to stop at any of these establishments.
7). Pooch Pines
As the name suggests, Pooch Pines was made with dogs in mind, which is why it has sections for dogs of different sizes. You don’t have to worry about anyone turning your dog away. Pooch Pines is supposed to meet their needs.
Though, it has plenty of shaded areas with benches for the dog owners to sit while their dogs enjoy the paved wash station. If you have a particularly energetic canine, it will get a kick out of the fountains. Dogs are free to play in them if they wish.
8). Dreher Dog Park
Dreher is a dream for dog owners primarily because it is so large. Once you reach the heart of the park, the road is over a mile away. In other words, dogs can run to their heart’s content without accidentally straying into traffic.
The park is suitable for families because it is clean and well-kept. The size of it creates a sense of isolation. You can have as much fun as you want without disturbing anyone. The park is open all day. They provide baggies for dog owners, not to mention fountains for the dogs.
