The Tampa Bay region is a beautiful place to live and play for people and pups alike.
Don’t believe us? Just pay a visit to these gorgeous DOG-FRIENDLY beaches. That’s right: sun, sand and your best friend.
Catch some rays and enjoy out with the whole family. Let us know your favorite dog-friendly getaway in the comments.
PS, we just went out of town and were able to board our pup for a few days on the fly with a locally-owned and operated dog walking/pet sitting business, Tails & Trails, and highly recommend it if you need someone to look after your furry friend(s).
