Brohard Paw Beach Venice Island This park, across from Venice’s airport, is where you and your “best friend” can play in the gulf and socialize with other dogs. Offering doggie drinking fountains, showers on decks for “dogs only”, fire hydrants and leash posts, dog lovers have declared this park… and Venice Beach… to be the best doggie park in the state of Florida!

Shaded by towering oaks, small dogs will enjoy their fenced in arena while the big boys can frolic in the larger pen. Double gates access both parks and the Venice Beach. A paved walkway leads directly to Venice Beach where your best friend will delight in this 300’ section of sand and water.

Note: Summer months may force you to carry your furry friend to Venice Beach as the sand can be hot under paw. Doggie waste bags and receptacles are provided and strategically placed around the park.

Human comforts include drinking fountains, picnic tables and restrooms.
Parking is very limited although off road parking is across the street.

Etiquette Tips for Dogs at Outdoor Restaurants

Make sure your pooch is well-behaved around other people and especially children.

Leash your four-legged friend and keep him or her from socializing with other diners or employees, unless welcomed.

Try to keep your dog close to your table or chair so he or she is not in the waiter's path. Dogs are not allowed on the chairs or tables.

Bring your own doggie bowl or ask the waiter for a paper or plastic bowl or cup for water if necessary.

Pets are not permitted to eat or drink out of restaurant glasses or dishes, unless they are disposable. 

Remember to tie your dog to your chair and not a table. A dog tied to a table can result in spilled drinks or food if he or she is strong enough to make the table move.

Always call ahead or ask first to make sure an establishment allow dogs at their outdoor tables.

My focus is to best understand the goals and visions of my clients, ensuring all decisions are made with a wealth of information and the necessary tools for a successful, rewarding experience.

I have found my Slice of Heaven I look forward to you finding yours!
