    Tipper loved the beach, and amenities. Thinking of moving to any area in Florida Where there are more beaches like this but having a hard time locating a list of dog beaches of Fl

    Our (and our dogs) first ocean experience. Brohard lives up to the hype! Lots of amenities, and a great experience all 'round! One "bone" deducted, for the fact that small dogs must cross into the large breed side for beach access.

    The best doggie beach in Florida

    We have been on a lookout for a dog-friendly beach in Florida and think this is the best one (there is not many - second best probably being Flagler beach in Volusia county). Our Golden Retriever Bella loves the gentle waves and turquoise waters. The amenities are good and dogs and their owners are friendly. Some are not very responsible when it comes to cleaning up after their pets immediately but unfortunately that can be expected. We can't wait to come back!

    Nice, but . . .

    The dog friendly area of the beach is a small strip. We saw many big dogs swimming and socializing and well behaved. We have a small dog and there isn't enough room to separate from the bigger dogs. She's less than 10lbs and is well socialized, however the area along the beach isn't long enough for a decent walk. The folks there were friendly and several seemed to be locals.

    Look Around

    This park is GREAT ! If you look around for other off leash (ocean) parks in FL you wont find many. This park is perfect, as far as being set up for DOGS! It is obvious that a dog lover or lovers designed this park, fencing, water etc. Its also great that there are pet friendly motels near by. I drive two and a half hours to come here. It is unfortunate that people bring untrained or unsocial dogs here, but there is plenty of beach so just move on down (very rare). Thank you Paw Park Staff !!

    Perfect for us..

    I really can't imagine a better place to spend an afternoon with my pup.. We've been to many dog parks and a few dog beaches but this is the only place I'm comfortable letting my boy run off leash. Fabulous, beautiful beach with free parking and lots of room for you and Fido.

    Great park/beach lots of dogs great owners

    This is a great dog park very friendly and many dogs. As far as I saw all owners were picking up after their pets. It was super clean as well. I have a friendly pitbull and she was welcomed in the beach with no problems or hesitation from other owners :) will defiantly be bringing my dog here agian

    This beach is incredible - my wife and I look forward to taking our dogs to this beach. We have two large dogs - a black lab and a white German Shepherd. We make the 2 and 1/2 drive down about once a month = the area is clean, the people are friendly, and most importantly I do not have to worry about my dogs, everyone around that area is there to have a good time and to ensure that their dogs are enjoying themselves. This is one of the best dog beaches we have ever been too, and we are looking forward to our next visit!

    Doggie Fun!

    My husband and I took our mini schnauzer to this park while visiting Manasota Key on 8/28/13....we were not there long but it was great---she had fun and all dogs were friendly.....they even announce when the see a new dog arriving---when we were leaving the beach area a pittbull unleashed appeared as if he/she would attack my doggie---but we got her away. To me it was a little scary and I think they should have had that one on leash---I would be there was a problem later....Overall it was a short but nice experience.....owners were friendly.

    Fantastic!!! Marie-Claude More than one year ago.
    Fantastic!!!

    I'm a snowbirder and I felt more than welcome! People were friendly, park is clean, shady. There is a little trail that goes directly to the beach. Fantastic place to swin in the ocean with your dog. Plenty of fresh water and showers. Bathrooms for pet owners very clean. There is a secure section for small dogs also. My dog is 100 pounds and was well welcomed.

    For the most good, will return

    My dog is a bigger dog 70lbs. but he is very timid and had never been to the beach. We took him for the first time and for the most part it was great the dogs and thier owners were wonderful. The bad part came when one german shepherd owner just sat there as his dog would run up and jump on other dogs. He did this to our timid boy and it freaked him out. He was scared and we had a hard time getting this dog away from ours. this dog did this several times to our dog and the owner NEVER once called his back or reprimanded his dog. We left much earlier than we had planned. We will take him back but we will be sure to check to see if that irresponsible owner and pet are there. The other dogs were great and ours had a little fun. There is always one jerk in the crowd.

    Great dog beach Beth More than one year ago.
    Great dog beach

    This is the fouth year in a row we have brought our lab golden mixes to this beach. They love it!! For the most part we have found most people that go there respect the beach and keep it clean. We only had a problem with a bully dog once...Wasn't horrible but he nipped at my dogs. But that is one day out of about 50 so far. Another plus is we find lots of shark's teeth while there!!

  • Juliana More than one year ago.
    Great!!! Juliana More than one year ago.
    Great!!!

    This was the first dog beach we have been so I don't have much to compare it to but we all had a great time. It was great having our 3 dogs off-leash especially when one of my dogs doesn't like water that much... The beach was clean and the dogs and their owner were nice... We went in the beginning of July and the city was empty. There wasn't that many people on the beach either, which was also great. We stayed at the Motel 6 on US 41 which wasn't that great but at least they don't charge any fees for my 3 large dogs... We were at Venice for the dog beach and the hotel was just for shut eye so it did the trick. We had a great dinner at Ophelia's Pasta House. They allow dogs. The people are friendly and the food was good. We will definitely go back there.

    Best Dog Beach Ever!

    I've been trying all the off-leash dog beaches I can find, and this one gets 6 bones! Clean, shady fenced area with a washing station, leading to a beautiful beach with all the room to roam and swim! The people were friendly, the dogs are great! Even the little dogs were fearless and socialable. No one was trying to coddle a leashed animal away from the fun-loving group of people and dogs who were there to PLAY! Easy to get to and free parking...what more could a dog-owner ask for!

    Too Much Poop!

    It would be nice if people picked up after their pets! We've taken our dog three times over the past three years and each time we've watched people ignore their responsibility of picking up after their pet. Very disappointing!

    I have a golden retriever "marley" and he loved it, its so nice to have a shower at the park to be able to clean them up before you leave..but..make sure you love all dogs if you visit a dog park or dog beach and please dont bring your dog if its not friendly with other dogs.

    Not very friendly dog owners Nancy More than one year ago.
    Not very friendly dog owners

    We have been to many dog beaches, but found the dog owners loved their own dogs but nobody elses! We have a very friendly and social German Shepherd. Whenever she came near, people would grab their little dogs as if she was going to hurt them. Other people complained if dogs ran across their blanket. Some dog owners pushed our dog away if she tried to play with their big dog. If you go to a dog beach, be prepared to love all the dogs!

    We've been coming to this beautiful beach every xmas for the last five years. We have two Yorkshires including a chocolate one and they just love this place. Of course they meet big dogs but everyone gets along. It's wonderful for their social skills!

    Beautiful park and beach

    Amazingly clean fenced area and then a beautiful beach. My tiny Papillon had never been to a beach before so we didnt let him off leash on the beach but he loved it.

    great beach nokbuckeye More than one year ago.
    great beach

    This is a great place to take your dog. Best in off season, early in am due to sometimes crowdedness. I think Tom is over-reacting a bit. To say that the people there enjoyed the dog fight is a bit over the top. Most people are very respectful of others at this beach. By far best on gulf coast.

    Golden loved the Beach

    Recently spent a week in Venice, found this fabulous off-leash park and beach area 1st full day. My golden retriever and I returned every morning as she was smitten with the beach. Park is really well maintained, water/hose/drain area to bath or just remove salt water from the dogs coat. Plenty of water stations, great shade, picnic tables and doggy doo pick-up bags. I have never seen off-leash done so well. I am now campaigning for similar facilities on or near our Great Lake.

    An Amazing Park!!

    young Great Dane fell in love with her. Everything at this park was thoughtfully laid out. There is a doggie shower, dog drinking fountains, and plenty of free parking. The park is kept very clean. My girl can't wait to return.

    Horrible experience

    Horrible experience. Huge dogs running everywhere without leashes. Many owners not in sight. We were just leaving after having witnessed two near dog fights on the beach area. Our small leashed dog was attacked by an unleashed pit bull mix. Thrown into the air. Several beer drinking people commented on what "a good fight" it was. When the pit bull's owner arrived, he could have cared less. He was angry at our horrified reactions.

    I am a mini-schnauzer and had such a good time at Venice Beach last winter.....I can't wait to go again!! Eveyone is friendly and the people are too! Great showers and picnic area and I'd run and play all day if they'd let me!

    I have been in other dog beaches but this is the best one, I have a mini dachshund and a small beagle and they love it here. We go there every summer.
