    Dog Fun in St Pete

    Have visited the Dog Bar in the past without my dog in the past. loved getting to see and pet all the pups! Had the opportunity to travel with my 50lb dog this time, and she had a blast at the DogBar. We were there for a Halloween event, and my pup won a prize bucket for her costume!

    Wooferee took my dog off his leash without my permission

    I had never been to the Dog Bar before but went with friends after hearing good things from them. I had a small 8lb puppy who had no recall command learned. When I got there, I stood in a little corner so my dog could acclimate. I was informed that my dog was required to be off leash and I asked her if it would be alright for me to keep him on his leash for a little bit and if not, I was more than happy to leave. She told me she knew what was best for my dog and to take my dog off his leash. After telling her I did not feel comfortable with that and stating again that I would be happy to just leave, she bent down and took his leash off. I am absolutely stunned that any dog place would employ someone who would tell people they know whats best for their dogs and do things against the owner’s wishes.

    New All Time Favorite

    What a great place to bring our dog Roxy. She had a blast there. It was nice being able to sit and have a cold beer while she ran around enjoying her new happy place. Highly recommend.

    Great Place!

    This was an amazing experience! We took our four furbabes here while vacationing in the area, they had a great time. Wish we had one of these in our hometown, we would be regulars! The staff was very attentive!

    Not well supervised

    There is no separate space for large and small dogs and too many pit bull mixes. My Frenchie was attacked by a pit bull mix and the owners of the pit did not try to stop it nor did the so called referee that is supposed to supervise the dogs. Good idea but needs more accountable workers!

    This is what heaven looks like

    it’s a bar and it’s a dog park, what a perfect combination of things. They have a great selection of local beers and ciders. Off lead and on lead areas. The owner greeted us and our dog on the way in and took the time to ask us about him. All the staff were super friendly. Couldn’t recommend this place enough!

    Amazing hangout for dogs and owners

    I’ve never seen my puppy as happy as he was here. Both my dogs loved it. It’s a turf park that’s decent sized but not huge. Well shaded with mist fans everywhere to stay cool. They brought out ice pools for the dogs to lay in. Drinks for the dog owners makes it very enjoyable. Multiple picnic tables and plenty of seating.

    Great idea!

    Recommend they franchise this concept!
    Our little pup turned out to be shy so would recommend an area for small dogs but if we lived in the area we would definitely try again.

    More fun than any dog park!

    We take our Chihuahua-Lab mix puppy Roscoe here several times a week. He has more fun here than any dog park we’ve taken him too. The dogs are generally better behaved and less aggressive than some we’ve come across at the local dog parks. Plus they have great bartenders and an excellent drink selection. The dogs always have a wonderful time. They often play throwback hip hop and newer hits too. I think the loud, upbeat music actually gets the dogs more excited and helps them play more and have more fun. I can’t recommend this place any more!

    Neat concept

    We visited for the weekend. This place was so cool. You can relax, drink, watch a game, all while your dog plays.

    Cool Experience

    THis was really cool, a very different experience. I went on a Friday before work let out (3:00 ish) and there were around 10 dogs there. It could be a bit much I think if it were much more crowded as it’s not that large. Personally, I’d avoid peak hours. . Like any dog space, the people make or break it and there were several people not paying attention while they drank and chatted and several piles of poop went unnoticed but that’s no fault of the establishment. Overall , the dogs attending were social and everyone had a good time. There are poop bags, water bowls and hand sanitizer provided. They put out spray bottles to get dogs attention if things escalate I guess since there’s no treats allowed which kind of weirded me out at first but no one was being excessive with it so I suppose safety first .
    My only complaint is the AstroTurf wreaked of urine and I was there only 3 hours after open.
    It’s something different and unique to do and I’d recommend it

    The ultimate place ---

    We live here and wish there were one of these in every town on earth. The Dog Bar is just what it says, a bar for dogs. Eveything about this bar is about dogs. The canine crowd has such a great time, they allow the humans to be there with them and drink. There are dogs on the tables, the bars and anywhere they want.

    There is a referee present should any of the pups get a little rambunctious. There is a pool, for the dogs, not the people. There are obstacles for the dogs to negotiate. There will be poop so your dog says, "This is my bar so clean that up."

    There are plenty of drink specials that the pups have arranged with the owners for their people. There is a game room upstairs with couches that the pups allow the people to sit. There is no, "Get down" here. Remember, the dogs are allowing humans to be there.

    The owner has a regular array of food trucks and music to keep the humans entertained while they do what they want.

    If your dog has never brought you here, listen to them.

    First time visiting, and both my dog and I had a ball! Not only were there a ton of great dogs, but awesome owners too. The off leash play area was covered, with water bowls constantly refilled and fans on high so the dogs didn’t get overheated. The beer was good and not overpriced. Super glad I bought a membership because we will definitely be going back soon!

    Love this idea!

    Imagine dog daycare with a bar and games. Everyone here was very friendly and welcoming and the dogs and owners had a blast! There is a small membership fee (we got a 1 week pass since we were visiting from out of town).

    Great socializing

    I love being able to bring my 8 month old puppy here for safe socializing. They are very good at keeping an eye on the dogs and making sure no one plays too rough. And every person I’ve met here has been fun to talk to!

    The Dog Bar is a perfect place to hang out with your pup and great People. Never a dull moment watching all the dogs play, great drink prices, and as they don’t serve food due to the dogs, there are plenty of places to purchase nearby or bring your own and enjoy the tables outside the dog yards.
    This is just a fun place!
