There are many options for outdoor fun in St. Johns County, FL for people but what’s a dog to do? The lucky dogs living in or visiting this area have options too!

Dogs are welcome at all of the St. Johns County beaches as long as they are on a leash and under their owner’s control at all time.  Not feeling the beach? As you stroll through the streets of St. Augustine you’ll see that dafmany shopkeepers have fresh water at their door for thirsty pets and some keep treats for them as well.  Also, most restaurants with outdoor seating will allow well-behaved dogs to rest peacefully under the table while their person enjoys a meal or refreshing beverages.

What about the more spirited dogs who need room to roam, socialize and run off-leash? Fortunately for them there are several dog parks in the county where that can be done. Amenities at some of the parks include shade, separate areas for small and large dogs, fresh water, a dog wash station and an agility course. Learn about the parks at the links below then grab your leash and your favorite canine and see them for yourself. Your dog will thank you!
