Shell Factory and Nature Center

The Shell Factory Dog Park, known as Doggy Heaven, provides a great place for your four legged friends to spend the day. Since the Shell Factory property is dog friendly (pets not allowed in Cap't Fishbones or Nature Park), Doggy Heaven was a natural addition. Admission is free and the Park is open all day. Doggy Heaven is also home to SunCoast DockDogs and the SW Florida Weiner Dog Club. Upon entrance to the Park you will see a large pool used for Dock Dog jumping events and Dog rehabilitation. The Shell Factory also promotes 'Doggy Church' which is held every Sunday at 9.30 am right at the Dog Park. After Church your dog can enjoy the agility course or cool off in the Doggy Fountain (may be held at Party House dependent on weather). No matter what breed or size, Doggy Heaven provides a great place to spend time with your four legged friend. Remember, the entire Shell Factory property is Dog Friendly so be sure to stop by Dog Bones Cafe or visit our Retail Store and browse many Dog related items. Visit Website

    Not what i expected

    Found this place after looking for dog friendly areas. Place was run down, tiny, and covered in poop.

    Doggy Heaven!!

    We had a balst at the shell factory. Staff were crazy about dogs and mine received fresh water, treats and kisses! Very large choice of shells, reasonable prices. Dog are welcome in the shell and gift shop too!There is also a dog park with a swimming poo. Dog swimming and jumping in the water contests are hold once a week. Check their website!

    We enjoy shopping at the Shell Factory and when we found out it was pet friendly, it made it even better. The staff was very friendly and even offered our doggie ice cream! Great selection of shells and jewelry.
